I am planning on purchasing a pair of KI-396 for about $1600 each because I want a speaker that can put out tons and tons of power in a relatively small package. The 396 seems to fit the bill, however I keep looking at the JTR 212HT as well. I know the 212HT is super high quality and will also sound very god, but is $1900 each and does not have as good of a horn and probably has an equal CD for the highs. What are your guy's thoughts on the comparison between these two speakers, and is there another speaker I should consider under $2000 that can also compete with these ones?
Greetings, I am looking for a set of pro speakers and I am in need of some information from everybody. From what I have read, the KPT-904 is one of the best pro speakers to buy and I would love a chance to get a pair. I looked at the JBL 4722 but I want to go with the kpt-904s as I dont see an advantage with the JBLs. However, if somebody thinks the JBL 4722 is better, I would love to hear your input. I have also read the KI-396-SMA-II is an amazing speaker and i am interested, but is about $1000 more than the kpt-904 per speaker, so there is noway I am spending more to get less. However, the cinema version of the KI-396-SMA-II is the kPT-396, which intrigues me because perhaps the price is lower because its a surround speaker, but I cannot find a price for it anywhere online or any information. If the kpt-396 is much cheaper than the KI-396-SMA-II, I may want to go with that route. Also, i have not found an easy way to purchase the kpt-904 as there is no website i can directly order from. If anybody can shed some light on the kpt-396, where to get it and the price its sold at, that would be helpful. If anybody knows a good place around the Seattle area to purchase a pair of kpt-904s, used or new, it would also be greatly appreciated. My setup will be mainly 95% for movies, and I plan on building a pair of GSG Devastator subwoofers later on down the road but probably not for a while. Thank you all for your help.

He has owned practically every KPT and KI product we are offering for sale, as well as used them to set up sound for his church and other settings. A tremendous shout of thanks to Jim Hunter for picking up these speakers from KGI and taking them to our new annex building out near the airport.
