Hey great sight! I'm a huge fan of anything that makes music sound good, and at the top of that list are great speakers. I was reading harmanpro magazine and learned for the first time some of your JBL history. I knew JBL made great speakers. In fact I have some I bought in a high end speaker shop. Their custom made speakers sounded good but were out of my price range, so I took A/Bed them against a set of rebuilt speakers. The rebuits sounded better than the expensive new custom speakers, and were within my price range. So I've owned a set of great sounding JBL L77s for at least 15 years. I knew they had some years on them, but never knew till today that they are 1971 vintage. And they still look and sound great! I use them for my main stereo, and have my keyboard (a Korg Triton) connected to them via a mixer. Marty

Considering how big the impact of JBL has been on the evolution of the speaker. It's only fitting that someone achieves the journey. Not to mention the fact that there is still a lot of vintage JBL speakers still lovingly enjoyed. thanks for a look at the history. Roger

VOTT's are fabulous!!!! As a former part-time radio announcer, I was constantly looking for speakers that would reproduce the most horrific musical instrument. Ya know, the mamoth pipe organ! I listened to a set of VOTT's in the living room of a broadcast and recording engineers house. He drove them with about sixty (60) watts. The organ never sounded reproduced so beautiful and clean, crisp!!

Just a quick thought as I fell across a Wisconsin Alumni Golf Tourney saying "Rob McRitchie and Tim Ciotti" 1st Place? After googling Don and Rob McRitchie (not very computer savy, stuck in the days of the pen)came across this site. Could it be? Don and Rob from Rochester, MI?? If this is true, I hope this note reaches you and reaches you well. Cheers to Hampton's Finest. Your lost friend, Dave Lion

My father was a sales rep for Lorne F. Greene and Associates many years ago. They sold/repped James B. Lansing products in the Chicago area. Sometime around the late 60's or very early 70's he purchased a "Paragon" sound system which I still have along with a #375 high frequency driver. I remember that he had with that a dividing network and back loaded horn which I think was a #C435. I look forward to learning more about the history of the equipment he valued so highly.

I used to own a magnificent pair of JBL L-100t floor standing speakers (back in the 90's). Since then, I have become a JBL "addmirere" and allways on the search for new models. Allthough I do not use JBL speakers in my current system nowdays, I still consider it the best home/professional speaker brand available. CHAU RONNIE

Very enjoyable and informative site. Long time JBL fan. Have owned the following: L-25, L-36, L-88PM12, L-100, L100T, L-200...Added 2405 pro tweeters and L-300 xovers, L-220, L-250...various car drivers and subs and a pair of S-4 in-wall speakers. Still own several pair of the above. My pic of the lot....love my L-220'S. Have had them re-foamed once but they still perform like new and I've had them since 1979. They are my main speakers in my surround system with L-100T's in the rear. They'll part your hair!! Have been in the audio/video field since the late 70's and have sold many lines of high-end speakers. Still prefer the vintage JBL's (let's not forget Altec...Model 19's or 604's in a 602 cabinet certainly kick butt), over essentially anything else. Currently building a guitar amp/speaker combo using a pair of 112a 8" drivers out of a pair of L-212's and various other JBL drivers. OK...I'm outta here for now....great site. Ray

Great site!! I use a pair of 4312A since 1986. They can still beat other more expensive speakers nowadays. With good tube amplification they can sound like a dream. Lot of respect goes to the pioneers of the early days from JBL. The 4312A bass loudspeaker is still one of the best in the world!!

I was selling (and building custom) JBL products for home consumer use in the early 70's, and have always LOVED the sound from JBL's monitor series products. Today, 30-some years later, they still aren't rivaled! Truly an amazing accomplishment and wonderful products! I have a set of L300's that I could never part with. Hurrah for JBL!

Truly enjoyed your site and it brought back several memories. I have owned a pair of special A7’s for over 30 years. In the late 60’s I was working in the Audio industry and called JBL to get information how to apply the PR15’s to my 515B’s. To my surprise Ed May was willing to give me a hand with the enclosure design. I had the privilege to speak with Mr. May several times while building the speakers.

What a great piece of work. As a long time musician and fan of JBL speakers, I was always curious about James B. Lansing and the speakers that bear his name. PS: I have a 1964 Fender Showman "12" speaker cabinet, with a Signiture Model D131F. and I wonder what the difference is (if any) with a D130 model?

But.............looking at this site brought back the JBL fever. Now i own a pair of 4311 B's and i expect to buy a a pair of 4312 B's within a few days. I am also looking for a pair of JBL Lancer 101's. After having had huge systems such as the Infinity's Q2's i am back to basic and believe me............purchasing a a pair of vintage JBL's brought me back to what really counts: MUSIC !!!

It's amazing to me, how someone has taken the time and energy,not just for all the research,that must have taken to format this wonderful web page. But the extensive historical background done of am American legacy,that will surely withstand, the test of time. I have been an owner on numerous Altec vacuum tube theater equipment throughout my life. So when I come across,what now we call "vintage Altec " equipment,and get it up and running,there is an overwhelming enjoyment,not just for where I am today,but where I come. They say,that we should go through life building bridges for others to follow in our footsteps.James B.Lansing,the bride builder. I thank you for this page.

Thought you'd like to hear from the designer and conceiver of the 515G, 920, 834, and a whole bunch of other speakers I'm not prowd of I did at Altec from 1981 to 1984. I've customized (diaphragms, cones, coils and cabinets) a couple of 604 pairs intalled in my house for the last few years. Been a long time since I've thought of those good times.

Thank you so much for this site that is dedicated too the man who I have so much admiration for J B Lansing. At the age of 9 in 1960 I was introduced to his speakers systems and have listen ever since from the recording studios to my home. I have customized a set of cabinets with dual 15's for each side using Altec model 416 for the low end. Each speaker is in a 10cubic ft chamber allowing for 20cubic per side. I got the help I needed from a man Richard May who woked for Altec back in the 70's giving me the dimensions for my cabinets. Two Altec 808 mid drivers with Manary horns and Two 902 HF for my top end. There is nothing like them. Every time I hear them I only wish I could have met Mr. Lansing and he could hear the sound of his speakers. Thank You for keeping his name and the legacy alive. Anthony Bucci Cinnaminson NJ.

What a great forum to place to dialog, love this site, I fell in love with JBL audio components around the age of 16 and could only dream of owning a paragon system or a pair Of Olmpus with the S8R system. I owned my fist mac 2505 at 16 as well as my first 375 driver at the same age, today at 52 I have finally had time to collect another 375 allong with 075's and am trying to design them into home built folded horns that I built several years ago. I also collect mac gear and know have a complete stack. Will try to post pictures when all is complete. Thans for all the work that you folks have put into this site (I'll be back !!!) Gary G.

I enjoyed your site. I use a pair of 4430's as control room mains and 4425's in the studio. I also have a hls 610's and a spw1200 sub as secondary control room monitors along with a third reference in a set of auratones.

I am looking for a help with the JBL 5235 crossover. Especially I need the cards 52-5130 for the JBL 4430. Has anyone cards left (at least one) ? Or has anyone a connection diagram of this card ? Thank you for helping a JBL-Fan ! Mathias

I knew that jbl and altec lansing were related somehow but after reading the history I was very impressed as to how it all came about, thanks for a very interesting read.

This is a most atractive site. I am interested in vintage JBL speakers -- especially the Lancer series of home speakers: L44, L77 in particular.

To create a realistic reproduction in a home theater, lots of air needs to be moved, in a way that pleases the ear. JBL chassis are one of ...if not the best to do just that

you mentioned a "frasier-may" loudspeaker. PLEASE not it was not fraiser, but it was Frazier as in Jack Frazier. The unit pictured is a Frazier "Dixielander" You can still see two of them hanging aht the Hilton, where Pete Fountain plays in New Orleans He doesn't use them anyomre, he uses JBL...but if he takes the speakers down the audiense will see how faded the curtains really are....i'd love to have them....thanks Todd Crane

Great site and a treat for an old audiophile like me. I purchased my first set of JBL speakers starting in the late 1960's. Eventually, I built up two S8R systems and built my own cabinets. I still have these speakers. There are none better. The cabinets have changed, the edges redone, and the sopund is as good as ever. Now, in the 00's I still look for JBL. Have a couple of bookshelf systems and recently found a pair of Lancer 77's for a great price because the woofers needed new edges. Did that this winter. These babies will complement our new huge LCD television this year. Thanks for a great site and all the resources. I have applied for a full login and forum access. Brent

Very informative site, It has been a pleasure. I will be spending quite a bit of time reading. Thanks for all the hard work, this site has reminded me that I really need to get another set of 4311's, I have missed them since they were sold off 20 years ago.
