Sorry Josh if I came across harshly, but JBL is making some really good professional monitors nowadays. I had a friend's little $300/pair 2-way LSR305s for a week, most enjoyable near-field in my 8ft x 13ft x 21ft room. Like the M2, the 305 reflect decades of quality monitors to support studio, mixing, and mastering work. Don't take their absence in the western home audio scene as being time wasted.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrpUDuUtxPMFloyd Toole discusses the M2 about an hour into this presentation. Measurements about 1 hr 7 min. The whole presentation is well worth watching if you haven't seen it.gab
The lack of a quality reference speaker (and room), agreed upon globally, is a glaring and embarrassing oversight in the recording industry, particularly in N America, and has slowed the development of sound reproduction quality for the entire history of sound recording. The speaker and room need not be perfect—just very good. At least, in Europe, 'Hi-Fi' is actually defined by a DIN standard (DIN EN 61305-5), or was attempted.
Note that he promoted the concept of frequency response (EQ/DSP) tweaked active speakers.Some companies, like Equator do that already (with coaxial designs).
It looked to me that the JBL studio line was using the same corrugated type woofer as the M2, so I thought it being a trickle down design. If so, how close would it be. I know the tweeter is different. Rocket Ronny
