JL Audio goes active

Active monitors are a rarity in the market today but JL Audio makes their break into the loudspeaker market with a great new active LCR, the Primacy. This new design is an active three-way system that has an integrated 3-channel 1,000 watt amplifier. The speaker utilizes DSP crossovers and is corrected for frequency, time and phase response.

Build quality is impeccable and their demo with the new in-wall Fathoms was one of the best I heard at the show. The speaker features dual 6.5 inch drivers, a single 3 inch midrange and a silk dome tweeter. These new active loudspeakers will set you back a steep $10,000 each, but audio nirvana comes at a price.
