JBL 500 The mean looking speakers
JBL is introducing the newest speakers on the EON stable, called the EON500 series. The EON500 series is a self-powered and lightweight speaker that raises the bar in the category of molded powered loudspeakers in all aspects, from industrial design to sonic performance, integrated utility, and portability. The integrated design of the woofer, amplifier, wave-guide, and thermal management of all components, adds to the coolness factor of the speaker. The EON500 series loudspeakers also offers selectable EQ, multiple suspension points, soft-grip handle, and a full-screened backed grille for extra component protection.
The JBL 500 was designed by RKS, who has designed a number of other lines for the brand. There is no word on the price for this mean looking beast.
