The Project Everest DD66000 is the finest loudspeaker JBL has ever created. It is designed and manufactured entirely without compromise, to set a new standard in loudspeaker performance.
The DD66000 combines the heritage of six decades of JBL loudspeaker design expertise with today's most advanced materials, components and technologies. It delivers remarkable sonic accuracy and musical realism.
The Project Everest DD66000 is stunning and unique in appearance. Evocative of the legendary JBL Hartsfield and Paragon loudspeakers, the DD66000 combines classic JBL design elements with refined contemporary styling, featuring curved and angled surfaces and a contoured horizontal midrange horn that enhances the loudspeaker's striking visual appeal. The DD66000 is available in exceptionally crafted rosewood, ebony, cherry and maple wood finishes.
The DD66000 excels in every sonic respect, with authoritative bass, a remarkably detailed midrange and pure, extended high frequency response to beyond 50kHz. The DD66000 combines the exceptional dynamic range, transient response and “effortless quality of horn-loaded compression drivers with the precise imaging, three-dimensional soundstage and articulate low-frequency impact provided by the finest dynamic drivers. The DD66000 delivers remarkably natural vocal and instrumental reproduction, and faithfully reproduces the sonic environment present on the original recording.
The DD66000 employs ultrahigh-frequency and high-frequency compression drivers featuring pure beryllium diaphragms, which are extremely lightweight yet rigid, for extraordinary detail and transient response. These operate in conjunction with exclusive JBL BiRadial ® horns, to eliminate sonic colorations and provide optimum dispersion.
The loudspeaker's 15-inch woofers feature an Aquaplas treated-pulp cone that preserves sonic neutrality while providing controlled, articulate bass response. The woofers operate in different frequency ranges, a configuration that provides optimum directivity and high output.
The DD66000 features front-mounted control panels that enable precise tuning of low-frequency and high-frequency level and other characteristics, to achieve maximum sonic performance in any system and room.
