An uncompromising entertainment system for listening rooms of up to 75,000 cubic feet, the Synthesis K2 home theatre system is so named for its use of the internationally acclaimed JBL K2 S9900 loudspeaker in the critical front left centre and right positions. One of the most refined and spectacular speakers ever created by JBL, the K2 S9900 speaker features Magnesium and Beryllium mid and high frequency compression drivers coupled to dedicated bi-radial horns. High frequencies are reproduced to beyond 40 kHz, while a massive 15-inch woofer reaches below 40Hz. Surround information is channelled to six S4Ai dipole ambient surround speakers, each with dual 2-inch high-frequency and dual 8-inch mid-bass drivers. The S4Ai's low profile cabinet design and flush mount grille allows each speaker to be mounted either on or inside a wall for the most discreet installation. To deliver thunderous sub-bass and LFE frequencies four S1S-EX 18-inch, 800-watt subwoofers are employed.
In all, the Synthesis K2 home theatre system comprises thirteen exceptionally refined loudspeakers, driven and controlled by the SDP40HD processor/controller, SDEC4500 digital equalizer and no fewer than ten S820 amplifiers. Synthesis K2 delivers up to 8,000 watts of power and achieves sound-pressure levels as high as 105dBA without distortion, making it one of the most powerful and refined systems ever developed for residential use. Each Synthesis® K2 system is calibrated on site precisely to match room acoustics. The procedure involves the use of eight separate microphones to ensure that the sound at every listening position is optimised.
