....anyone else interested in these new pro speakers http://www.jblpro.com/www/products/tour-sound/vtx-series/f15#.VSBQqLB_nIV ? I am, cause it uses the new D2 dual phragm driver. Anybody know what the MSRP is?

Do you know what the crossover is?I'd use some LSR speakers as a poor man's M2, myself. This thing is definitely an SPL monster, but with a 15" woofer it's crossed over too high for home use. There are some polar response issues. Just my opinion of course.
They may have somewhat of a point. The LSR305 has a better polar pattern than the 308, but it probably doesn't have the output capabilities for realistic sound pressure levels. The LSR6332 is an excellent, albeit pricey, choice. The new LSR 7 series looks like it could be promising, but so far JBL haven't provided data commensurate with their other pro speakers.Before I got the 4622's and was looking at all the JBL's, I actually asked specifically about the LSR's. Everyone said, great speakers for nearfield, but won't have the SPL for decent home theater.
True. Very rare indeed and they have a small marketplace. IME, and generally speaking, those looking for high output speakers are generally not the most discerning when it comes to SQ and those most discerning about the SQ are generally not concerned about huge output.In general the best performing speakers in terms of linearity in the on and off-axis response tend to have tweeters with some form of directivity control and a smallish midrange/woofer. Speakers that deliver truly excellent sound AND have huge output capabilities are a rare breed indeed.
