JBL D44000 PARAGON JBL D44000 PARAGON SPEAKER


⭕ JBL D44000 PARAGON. IT WAS A LANDMARK PRODUCT, BASED ON A UNIQUE DESIGN PRINCIPLE, THAT REMAINED IN PRODUCTION LONGER THAN ANY OTHER SPEAKER FROM JBL.

THE PARAGON IS A STEREO SPEAKER SYSTEM INSTALLED IN A SINGLE CABINET. IT BASED ON A DIFFUSION PRINCIPLE DEVELOPED BY RICHARD RANGER AS A CONSULTANT TO JBL. THE MID RANGE DRIVERS FIRE TOWARDS A CURVED WOOD PANEL THAT REFLECTS THE SOUND WAVES TO CREATE A WIDE SPACIOUS STEREO IMAGE.

THE STUNNING INDUSTRIAL DESIGN FOR THE PARAGON WAS DEVELOPED BY ARNOLD WOLF. HE WAS HIRED AS A CONSULTANT TO THIS PROJECT AND LATER WENT ON TO BECOME PRESIDENT OF JBL IN 1970. THE PARAGON WAS A VERY COMPLICATED SYSTEM TO CONSTRUCT. IN THE 1960S JBL ESTIMATED THAT 112 MAN-HOURS SPENT SANDING THE ENTIRE ENCLOSURE AFTER ASSEMBLY. THEN A SINGLE COAT OF OIL WAS APPLIED BY HAND AND ALLOWED TO DRY OVERNIGHT. TWO MORE COATS OF OIL WERE APPLIED THE NEXT DAY BEFORE SIX HOURS WORK WAS APPLIED FOR FINAL TOUCH-UPS. SUBSEQUENT TO THIS YET ANOTHER COAT OF OIL WAS APPLIED AND HAND RUBBED.
