    Anybody know what speakers these are? Posting says they are vintage JBL from 1978.

    Sorry, no JBL like that ever, let alone from 1978. Stamped frame woofer, JBL never used double midranges (although these look like halfway decent mids) and JBL never used an EV-esque wide small horn tweeter like that pictured.

    Agreeing... these are not JBLs.. but pull a driver, authentic Js are stamped as such on each driver.

    Ok so the seller gave me a little more info. He says that they are JBL speakers in acousti-craft walnut cabinets.

    Nice find, kjello.

    Those drivers don't look at all like JBLs to me.

    Have been dealing with JBL since the early 60's and though we weren't dealers the entire time and I mostly dealt with the professional line; I have never seen a JBL with a EV t-35/350 tweeter and some generic woofer. Altec did some strange things towards the end, and I fear JBL maybe going down the same road in the future. I hope not.

    Bart, just for fun, here’s one obscure double-midrange JBL (Ti5000, made in Denmark). I’d never seen these until a few days ago. (I guess I’d call them BeoJBLs, with LE14-looking 12” woofers.)

    LE120H, just like the LE120H-1 used in the L7 and used in many of the European L90 series.

    Yeah, I’d looked them up earlier, but didn’t have enough interest to do it a second time. Thanks.
