Infinity isn't the only Harman company bringing out wireless subs at CEDIA -- some tech is just destined to be shared between brands, and JBL's ES250PW and ES150PW subs bear a certain family resemblance to the Infinity offerings. The 2.4GHz wireless transmitters are dead ringers, and the cabinets do look similar, but JBL makes use of 12- and 10-inch PolyPlas polymer-coated paper woofers in the 400-Watt ES250PW and 300-Watt ES150PW models, respectively. The JBL PolyPlas may not sound as exotic as the Infinty driver materials, so the higher price points for the JBL equipment of $729 (ES250PW) and $599 (ES150PW) is a little surprising. Our advice is to wait and see street pricing and then shop with your ears between the brands.
