L82 Classic speakers from JBL
24th January 2020
The L82 Classic is a modern version of the JBL L100 loudspeaker, released in 1970 (itself a consumer version of the JBL 4310 Pro Studio Monitor)
The new L82 Classic’s 203mm, 2-way system design is packaged and sold as mirror-image pairs.
The speakers provide a 25mm titanium dome tweeter with acoustic lens waveguide and front-panel HF Level attenuator.
The tweeter is the same as used in the larger L100 Classic.
The system’s cast frame white poly cone woofer has bass-reflex tuning via a front-firing Slipstream port.
Check out the vintage JBL styling including an Quadrex foam grille (or, as my wife has it, “bathroom tiles”) in a choice of three colours — black, orange, or blue — all with a black and bronze JBL logo.
The enclosures are finished in a satin walnut wood veneer and can be positioned vertically or horizontally.
Accessories for the JBL L82 Classic loudspeakers include the JS-80 floor stands (sold as a pair), to elevate and angle the enclosures.
Additional retro Quadrex foam grille packs (black, orange, or blue) are also available.
Price is $2,500 per pair, while the JS-80 floor stands are $250 per pair and additional grille colours are $199 per pair.
Available from April 2020.
