    Good to know. I use mine on the angled JBL stands, and prefer the bass response.

    I found the L100 to lack some of the extension down low that I like in the L112, and like even more in the L150A, but it's probably fair to say the variances could easily fall in the YMMV area. Then there's the HF response, I much prefer the 044 domes to the cone tweeters on the L100 sonically. Also like the ring radiator pro tweeters from back then too, but 4345 and similar models are a bit out of my pocket range unless I sell off a bunch of other stuff. Tried the L220 but that may not have been the best model they did with 076/077 tweeters, right? Ultimately I sold those and kept the L96/112/150A pairs.

    Yeah... officially the 222 was the Disco, but I'm sure there were folks that thought both models fell in that category. I think it's a better speaker than that and I really wanted to like it better - I mean, it is built with a lot of good solid JBL parts - but it just didn't punch my buttons - even when I ran them biamped with a B380.

    What's your take on the new L100? Had a chance to listen to those?

    I can't relay speak on what Jerry used for live sound reinforcement, although he indeed use JBL's his personal listening was I believe done primarily on 4311's
