This is exactly what is happening. D&B, L'Acoustics, and Meyer are low-volume, specialist brands. JBL has become an audio generalist. That orange logo doesn't hold big value when it also appears on downmarket  consumer items

Don't get me wrong, most average people (not us super sound nerds) are still somewhat impressed with our JBL inventory and especially our Vertec rig. It just tends to cater more to Ford/Chevy money not the BMW/Mercedes money like the above mentioned premium brands.
Don't get me wrong, Ford makes some baller F series trucks, but when you go to rent one you don't necessarily want to pay for the Super Lariat Harley Davidson Eddie Bauer version.

Are there people in this forum who were demoing it. Who can now give us more insight into how the A12 performs?

Is there a particular question you have about the A12? It's a bit difficult to give you more insight about the box without a more specific idea of what you would like to know.

Personally I'm interested in how it stacks up against V20 and V25. The reason being all the JBL literature and content out now is touting it as a revolutionary change? Does it supercede these? What sort of ratio equivalent are we looking at between the v25 and the A12?

Will you be able to use A12 in a system with other VTX V-series boxes?

What sort of price point will these come in at?

More horsepower than V20. Sounds different than V25. Not compatible with the V series in the sense of using A12's as a downfill for the V25 if that's what you are thinking of. I honestly feel like they are 1:1 with the V25's even though they are 12" boxes vs. 15" boxes. The price point isn't something I care to address publicly. That would be something to sort out with your JBL person.

Where did you hear them? Or are you with JBL, and thus have an inside scoop, and that's why you can't talk about pricing?

I'm just a JBL rental house. I have 36 A12's sitting in my shop. I also have V25's, V20's, S28's, G28's. I don't feel it's my place to speak to anything regarding pricing as that would be between a potential buyer and their JBL rep.

Ah ok, fair enough. It read like perhaps you had some inside scoop on it. :) However, could you at least share what the MSRP is on them, since there's nothing about that in any of the press releases I've seen? I think people are interested to know at least where the ballpark pricing is, even if they can't pull the trigger on it right now. I know I'm curious! :)   [I'd take a PM as well, if you prefer. Just looking to see where my budget might get shattered next year, and this is something I might consider as an upgrade from my 88 rig.]

And congrats for getting to jump on 'em early!
