I will start with my L46's
Sorry had to take this pic off of Ebay mine I have already posted.
My currently idle L77's.
I don't have any :tears:
Only JBLs I have are L40's and they are in need of wooger raccooning and a
good sanding & refinishing.
Oh wait, I do have the L19s somewhere...
I snatched this pic. my woogers need racooning. I've read they sound really nice. I got em for 2 bucks rhe cabinets are clean and well kept.
Ummm, my moderate system... I have to struggle to hear it.
See I knew you guys where out there hiding the good stuff. :thmbsp:
Thats why you keep blowing out your hearing aid. :lmao:
Actually, it's tough to hear, because I have to climb back over the overturned recliner... :yes:
Impressive system, STP. Are your electronics sitting on speakers or what?
STP we need more pics. how much do those puppies wieght?
My only pair, picked up at a yard sale for $20. One tweeter open, both mids open, both woofers in great condition, beat up cabs, grills wasted. My lowly 4311s sit in a corner awaiting resoration.
Here is my Valentines gift from my wife!!! Need some cleaning, otherwise fine. I do nee on screen foe one of the tweeters! I love these. The Woofers are upgraded to 128h's (no foam). The L112 woffer had foam.
Sorry I have to cheat. The wife is stalling me on buying a digital camera.
And two pairs of these:
A horribly abused pair of these:
And, I think these are still in the family. I gave these to my daughter a few years ago along with a Sansui G-8000:

Those are gorgeous STP... what model # are they ?
My L112's dwarfed by my HMP100's.
I only have 1 pair of JBLs......the Apollo S7 system, circa mid-60s. They were given to me by a great friend. When I first got them they had zero bass, but after much research, I decided to treat the rock-hard Lansaloy surrounds with brake fluid, as described on the Lansing Heritage site. The bass is now superb, as is everything else (at least to my ears). The sound they produce is BIG. That's why they are in use mainly for home theater time. No subwoofer or extra speakers needed.
i have a JBL Century with a severely damaged box and a JBL 316 Pro, which is still hooked to one of my amps, sold as home-studio monitor sometime in early '90s in southeast Asia.
Hooray for big and old JBL's!!! Wish I had a pair.....although I'm not really sure where I would put them.......but Sovereigns and Olympus and Apollo and Dorians - OH MY
They're JBL L-300's. 15" woof, LE-85 Compression driver for the mids (13 pound magnet) and the famous '077' slot tweeter. I lusted after a pair of these for decades! Finally found a pair in San Diego and paid $1,200 the pair. Replaced the midrange diaphragms and refoamed the woofers. Also replaced the felt and glass on the top of the cabinets. I also performed bypass capacitor mods on the crossovers.
These are simply magnificent speakers! I never tire of them. The bass is clean tight and powerful. Midrange is very much out there. The 077's provide sparkling highs. Separation is superb as well as detail. You will cry uncle before these speakers do. They just loaf along and yet, you've got a wall-o-sound pounding you into the seat. No problem 'feeling' the music whatsoever. If you throw on some techno, you can actually feel the second floor of the house pump upwards!
