marketing technique maybe?? I don't know why you felt you had to make a thread about it, though.

its cause they're the 60th Anniversary Special Edition, not saying that makes it worth the money but the normal gti's can be had far less...

and to the op... maybe they only have one left in stock cause they only stocked up on a couple and sold all but one? lol

i agree with what james said also.. /thread

You guys are funny.

If it had (insert company name that you all drool over) written on it, you'd be jizzing on your computer screens.


Oh, and it's Crossover (singular) not crossovers. It has the left and right channels in one chassis.

wow....probably not too much special, but some think these are some of the best components made and I believe these are the models that Gary Biggs has one numerous sound quality championships with

Edit: same line, different size - he used the smaller version

They say one left in stock because there's probably one left in stock. Their availability goes something like Ships next day, limited stock, 1 left in stock, out of stock on back order. I bought an amp from them when it said 1 left. And fancy that it said out of stock the day after it shipped.

But think about it, they probably only ordered a small amount intentionally because of the high price. Im surprised its not out of stock already.

My components are handling and are rated for 300 watts RMS. In other words I'm sending 600 watts to the pair...

Those components are nothing even remotely close to the standard GTI components :rolleyes:

Those are JBL's flagship model. And really, they aren't horribly priced considering the market they were intended for. There's far more expensive components available, and there is plenty of competition for JBL in the $1k+ market for component speakers. Focal, DLS, Genesis, Alpine, Rainbow, HAT, etc etc etc.

Are they worth the price? If you are in the market for a high end pre-built 2-way component set from one of the world's leaders in loudspeaker design......then they are potentially worth the money.

Even if I had money out the ying yang, I wouldn't spend that kind of chedder on some componets.

Check that, I used to have money and I did spend close to that, but was on 4 sub woofers, lol!

In all honesty, JBL is one of the best loudspeaker companies in existence.
They have been engineering SQ setups for home/public audio for many many many years.
I have a set of GTO502 2way 5.25 on my shelf now. Those are some wonderful speakers if passed right. Feed them 125hz and up, and you will be hella happy.
