First thing I noticed is that they are not as sensitve. 1 JBL at 8 ohms is louder than 2 Neos at 4 ohms (side by side with a stereo power amp). The amp is rated at twice the wattage at 4 ohms vs. 8 ohms...so how is the JBL louder? Same true with EVM 12Ls.
I've had the EVs for 25 years and they are my fave. I like them better that the JBL E-120s.
The Webers don't sound bad...and they weigh a bout 1/3 what the JBLs and EVs weigh...but maybe there is a reason why those speakers weigh so much. I think the Neos are rated at 75 watts, while the JBLs and EVs are rated at 200 (maybe 300 for the JBLs).

We are currently working on redesigning the neo magnet circuit and will release several models throughout 2010
