Looks interesting. The JBL engineers didn't really have any good suggestions for me. They pretty much said nothing is going to sound like the M2's. But of course that's what they would say.

Well, its the only thing in the JBL stable that even comes close, and is a formidable speaker in its own right. Dual 8" drivers will give dialog its due.
But I'd also expect the M2 to be fully capable of running with a "phantom center" mode.

Which is exactly what I'll be testing. There is no substitute for a real center channel, but with the phenomenal sweet spot of the M2's it might work pretty darn good.

^You don't need a center channel unless you are sitting off center.
If you do though, why not just get another M2 for center channel. It's only money after all.

I saw in a recent interview with Mark Waldrep, that he plans to put a pair of M2 in his studio.

Waldrep thinks they're the best speakers he's ever heard at any price, and he's heard a lot of speakers. So it's no surprise.

I explained why I haven't done a center yet a couple posts back. If I had an AT screen I'd have ordered 3 right off the bat.

Those L820's look like 4-ways? Pretty neat.

I'm ready for some measurements of your 2s way I can see if the specs are conservative or not. Their price really isn't that much different than the Danleys I'd be interested in purchasing so been stuck in back of my mind as of late!

There's these also. They have the Be diaphragm like the M2. They are a tad bit expensive though. I think they are somewhere around $7k a piece. :O

The M2 doesn't have Be diaphragm. They M2 has polymer diaphragms and a different CD design altogether. I have no idea how they would match, but I'll ask the JBL engineers.
