Push the Limits on Every Aspect of Performance: 182-Pound JBL K2 S9900 "Among the Very Best Loudspeakers Money Can Buy," Play with Utmost Refinement, Naturalism, Dynamics, Composure
When you imagine a world-class loudspeaker system, a picture that resembles what the JBL K2 S9900 look like probably comes to mind. No, you cannot entirely judge a loudspeaker by its cover, so to speak, but one passing glance at these four-foot tall floorstanders tells you much of what you need to know. These are serious musical instruments built for keeps, and made for playing back music with accuracy, spaciousness, dynamics, and separation of the nth degree. No wonder the 182-pound K2 S9900 incorporates many key design elements from JBL's flagship Project Everest model – and produces stereo images and soundstage of utmost refinement, naturalism, and dimensionality.
Built around sophisticated compression-driver technology, K2 S9900 pushes the limits on every aspect of audible performance. The audiophile world has noticed. It has won awards from prestigious Chinese, British, and Japanese press outlets as well as ADEX, a preeminent American design journal. The combination of tradition, technology, power, and engineering all adds up to a loudspeaker that gives you supreme heights of musical expressiveness, emotionalism, and involvement. Its resolution, finesse, bass, composure at even the highest volumes, and seemingly effortless versatility with practically every genre under the sun will allow you to feel – as much hear – anything you play.
While the outer and sonic beauty of K2 S9900 becomes instantly evident the moment you walk in the room, the speaker's internal components tout an equally enviable pedigree. Each comes loaded with a massive 15-inch woofer with an Alnico magnet, four-inch voice coil, and cast frame 35.25-pound motor structure. A high-frequency compression driver and horn outfitted with a four-inch magnesium diaphragm, a precision-molded Sonoglass high-frequency horn-throat section integrated with a curved baffle, an ultra-high-frequency compression driver with one-inch beryllium diaphragm, and a Sonoglass ultra-high-frequency horn mated to a die-cast aluminum housing also account for why K2 S9900 will take you places you've only dreamed of visiting.
JBL truly cut no corners or cost with K2 S9900. Separate crossover bands for each frequency section, a heavily braced curved front and rear enclosure, and furniture-grade finish round out speakers that, if mated with a capable amplifier (500Wpc recommended) and source component, more than live up to What Hi-Fi?'s declaration that they "are among the very best speakers money can buy." 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
"The K2s are superstars, delivering performance as informative as it is fun. We can't think of an alternative that has had such an addictive effect on us."
