Frequency Response - (–3dB) 22Hz – Low-pass crossover frequency
Low-Pass Crossover Frequencies - 50Hz – 150Hz, continuously adjustable (150Hz when using speaker-level connection)
Inputs - Gold-plated 5-way binding-post speaker-level; left and right line-level, switchable to LFE
Outputs - Gold-plated, 5-way binding-post speaker-level
Enclosure Design - Sealed
Baffle - Low-diffraction, IsoPower™
Dimensions - (H x W x D) 16-1/2" (15-1/2" without feet) x 15-1/2" x 15-1/2"

Weight: 58 lbs (approx)
Warrantyparts/labor) Three years (electronics)
Five years (drivers)
Cabinet(H/W/D)(cm): 18.25" x 14.5" x 19"
well i would recommend JBL... because JBL Speakers has a long line of quality sound and style in the audio industry.JBL has become more mass market in their consumer loudspeakers throughout time. On the other hand, they have also staked out a position at the highest end of the consumer field with their Project speakers, consisting of the Everest and K2 lines that were particularly successful in foreign markets. is offline   Reply With Quote
