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.
