JBL 1959 Advert

Cool little Metrogon and Paragon ad. One of the most beautiful speakers ever made.

  1. As I understand, either Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra had two Paragons set up in their respective home.

    I'm surprised I don't see the Paragon/Metrogon in retro mid-century movies. It's so unusual.

    If I'm not mistaken the curved center panel, in effect, forms a segment of a large horn for dispersion of the mid-frequency horn (375 compression driver). The Paragon being the home version based on an early theatre system called "The Ranger".

    Thanks Iain
