It will include subs, mid subs, mid/high and Ultra high speakers suitable for stacking.

Look out for more info soon

keep us informed sounds interesting and its good news if a big company sees fit to come out with dedicated lines for dance that means the market is somewhat healthy.

I have been expecting them to do this for years. Especially with these drivers, the only surprise was the "cheap?" super tweeters.

Here's some info in print:

I also question the Selenium ultra highs. One good thing though: No passive crossovers anywhere in the bigger boxes.

It's about time JBL produced something like this, but after more than a decade of mediocrity, have they missed the boat?

There is now very tough competition in the club market, with excellent dance floor orientated products from Funktion One (Dance Stack & Res 3/4s), Turbosound (TA500), Fulcrum (XL), Void (Stasys and Air Motion), Martin Audio (W8C, W8L, W8LC), EAW (DS series, and the QX series looks interesting too), amongst others. It will be interesting to see how JBL's new marquis series sounds, and whether it will be successful in a saturated market.

in all fairness, fulcrum and void are not going to impose on jbls market much. most club owners will have never heard of them, and support is limited for global operations.

by bringing up martin audio, the vertec series is forgotten, and vertec happens to be installed in a number of clubs.

eaw qx does look interesting. could very well be a bms coax for he mid-high

Did Martin Audio's Blackline series ever do well? There's one here and it sounds worlds better than the EAW Avalon system we have.

Bear in mind there are a lot of American users that will choose JBL over those brands not based on patriotism but due historically being found in a lot of clubs in the United States. So JBL will be welcomed with open arms.

Although, I am not American, it is very rare not to see some type of JBL product in clubs in the United States.

I would imagine JBL used Selenium due to being a part of Harmon. JBL may be testing the waters to see if the line is profitable before investing in components aimed for the fixed installed club environment. For it appears, JBL are using current components with a slight modification in terms of décor.

Best Regards,

Weekend in berlin has some, watergate as well, and robert johnson in frankfurt is well regarded.

I imagine there is quite a bit of it hanging around england in places even english people have never heard of.

Fulcrum is doing very well in Vegas due to John Lyons using his pet project.
Some of the stuff I love, some I don't same as any brand.

Void is about to make some very big noise here too. as Part of Void USA here I can say we have moved over 65 large format subs and tops already this year.

No one will every be as big as JBL, but Todays JBL is all Mexican and Chinese. Not like the good old days.

I know for us we stay ahead of the curve with manufacturers like Beyma, Faital, and all of our subs are custom UKM w kevlar impregnation.

I personally think its amazing that NYC is spending money in clubland again. It is really gonna benefit everyone and give club patrons and installers a ton of fun.
