    I have a question and I hope / think this is the place to ask it.

    Why does Infinity, Fisher and Yamaha each have their own dedicated forum yet JBL does not?

    Pretty sure JBL has a bigger following here than do the above mentioned. Just saying. And what about Realistic? Lots of Realistic fans here. More than Yamaha anyways.

    How does it get decided which manufacturer gets their own forum?

    Frequently asked question - insert any brand that doesn't have a forum already.

    If you were to search for the term "own forum" (include the quotes) you'll find some threads about this topic. Basically boils down to 1) finding a moderator 2) having enough traffic and 3) diverting traffic from other active forums such as (in this case) Speakers.

    Nothing against JBL, you understand.

    tox has got it right, but maybe in the reverse order. And add, is there competition from another forum elsewhere?

    That was my thought. JBL/Altec has the Lansing Heritage forum. Same reason Polk has no sub forum here.
