ELKHART, Indiana — In a move that provides custom home systems integrators with a new benchmark for performance and aesthetics in a luxury-tier loudspeaker, JBL today introduced the new JBL K2 S9900 floor-standing loudspeaker. The K2 S9900 is the latest entry in JBL’s K2 series of freestanding full-range loudspeakers, and represents the ultimate in audiophile performance. Building upon the design and engineering brilliance of the successful JBL K2 9800, the new K2 S9900 expands its frequency response down to 33 Hz via a new low-frequency extender, giving it a total range of 33Hz to 50 kHz with 900 HZ and 15 kHz crossover points. The K2 S9900 is also 35 percent more powerful than its predecessor, with a power-handling rating of 500 Watts (RMS). And while the KS 9900 continues the K2 Series tradition of utilizing the proven 15-inch (380mm) diameter fiber-pulp cone low-frequency driver, the K2 S9900’s 4-inch (100mm) high-frequency compression driver is a third larger than that of the K2 S9800, and is topped with a 1-inch (25mm) ultrahigh-frequency driver. Overall, the K2 S9900 sets new levels of performance and style for the luxury home entertainment market.
