I have a pair of JBL 4311 Control Monitors serial # 14192 & 14195. I know there was the "A" & "B" series but these say 4311 "WX" on the rear. Can anyone tell me what the differences are between the A,B & WX series? Many thanks! Mark

WX just means oiled walnut

I have been informed that the 4311"WX" has more data in it beside the Oiled Walnut finish. Because after the WX there is no "A" or "B" these are orginal 4311's which have the Alnico V magnet. A rare set indeed.

Mr. Mills, your multiple Forum efforts in shamelessly promoting your eBay auction are real lame. You are a trying to mislead the unknowing.

You wasted the time of two of the most knowledgable on this forum, and should be banished to a soundless sound-proofed room!

Just my opinion.

:mad:

Whatever...

"A rare set indeed."

Do solely to the fact that so many were tossed in the trashcan after the frat party was over...

That's where Mr. Mills found them - he was keeping warm beneath them having been tossed there first.

Yeah, hopefully Don will toss two of these three threads in the trash too.

I think I'll give the "thread rating" feature a try :)
I'll give this one a 2...

I'm with you on that.

A two is generous, but even in Mr Mills shameless promote he shook some good research out of the trees.

Regrettably, we all unwittingly furthered his cause.

:mad:

Two it is!

ROFLOL

"Regrettably, we all unwittingly furthered his cause."

Yeah, someone visiting the forum for the first time and seeing all the threads devoted to 4311's might erroneously think alnico 4311's are "all that" :p Some poor guy with 4311B's won't be able to sell his :(
And what about the poor sot who has the "super secret spy shit" model, the 4311BWX?

Max Smart (aka Mark Mills)? No worries - he's looped on Agent99 and thinks his Shoe Fone still doesn't work (back to that WX in ears syndrome...)

Now there's a proper poll subject!

"Who thinks Agent 99 rocks!?"

Hell Yeh I'll trade a pair of 4311BWX's for a deal with Agent 99 anytime.:)

"A rare set indeed."
Indeed, indeed. Since the design was only half-cooked. Fruition of the basic design was not reached (IMHO) until the 4412 / 4412A / LSR stages.
BTW, where's that trask can...I'll take 'em!

I need not worry about dates here, these are VINTAGE speakers and its OK !!!

My JBL 4311WB speakers have sat in the attic for the last 25 years with a busted
mid and tweet. I bought a soldering iron and guess what the internet allowed me
to do after all these years.........FIX my speakers and now they started working
and Im playing Jethro Tull Benefit and loving it !!!!!!!! Scorpions are alive again!

I thought they were 4311B's for years and years and when I just looked at em,
I couldnt believe they were WB (11644 and 11645 serial numbers).

I have no idea what magnets or any info, but I would like some advice as
to what amp I need to make this work at an ok sound????

I was going to buy a new PYLE 240 watt amp but the freq response is
not good and its rated in peak watts, not rms so its really not 120 per
channel watts. DO I need 100 per channel or would 40 be ok ????

I see a Onkyo 60 watt per ch for 40 bucks on craigslist........what is best for
the speakers????? Thanks for info (im so happy to have them working again)!!!

Amps like speakers do degrade with time. I use a refurbished Marantz 2275 with my L100s and I doubt more power would really make much of a difference. Do realize there is essentially no difference between 60 watts and 75 watts, however the difference between a great 60 watt amp and an average 75 watt amp might be huge... I don't think the 4311/L100 will really do a great 60 watt amp justice though so sticking with something like an Onkyo, a Marantz, a Denon, or a vintage Yamaha or Pioneer should all give you very satisfactory results.
