    LSR's are great. Many of us have them on our desks as computer speakers now (I have LSR305s). If I can ever find a good pair of LSR6328p's that haven't been used as jack stands, I will pull the...

    Cheap and punchy ? The JBL 940 from the late 80s
    Moderate and punchy? The XPL200 from the early 90's
    Expensive and punchy ? The Array 1400 from the mid 2000's

    You want classic JBL ?

    You could always look at Revel as I did. I sure think the big Ultima Salon 2's are a logical successor to my beloved 250Ti's. Large floor standing 4-way ? check. Advanced JBL drivers using latest...

    opinions vary

    In my audio travels over the last decade, I have run across a few JBL fans who actually prefer the other 104 variants to the 104h. There's no harm in you swapping them in to test it out, although as...

    I am in this same place with the Salons...there is so much more detail that it can be overwhelming at times. Other times, it's pure bliss - if the recording is very good you'd swear the band is in...

    Room treatments

    What you are describing is very similar to what I am going through (although at a lower stress/dissatisfaction level) with my recent 250Ti -> Revel Salon 2 switch. The Salons have a much wider...

    Welcome!

    Hey welcome to the sunny NorthEast :-)

    If you want to meet some local like-minded JBL (and vintage hi-fi in general) fans, I'd recommend surfing over to AudioKarma and keeping an eye on the...

    Great review - thanks for sharing!

    My Salon 2's also say "Made in Indonesia" on the box so I would wager that's the new Harman speaker facility in the East.

    subs need separate amps

    I've lost count of the built-in amps I've lost in subs. If they die now (and the cab + driver are worth it) I use an external XOver and amp. The bass SPL is just death on the cheap circuits used in...

    I know it doesn't have a JBL badge, but I am seriously smitten with the Ultima Salon 2's. I mean c'mon - it's got inverted Ti drivers like the PT series, and a Be dome tweeter like the JBL big...
  18. missing one...

    No discussion of 12" 3-ways is complete without the 120Ti. Probably the best drivers of the older stuff, and a very nice looking cabinet to boot.
