Thread: Describe your HIFI -system

    Personally I would think the S-22's are more sonically correct than the L-300's and they appear to be just slightly more efficient. It seems to me that the 300's have just a bit better low end, though in the present set up with the 18" Velodynes handling the lowest of the lows, it is hard to tell. I have never heard nor seen another set of S-22's. Are you familiar with them? I have some literature from JBL that describes then as quite possibly the finest combination of JBL loudspeaker components and enclosures ever created. I play both sets of JBL's together most of the time as I am somewhat of a novice but an admitted SPL nut. Does any of this make sense with your (and any other member's) experience with this rare model of JBL? I get plenty of volume (perhaps not enough) out of my present set up, however, the room I am currently using this system in is almost 1500 s.f.
    Any info/advice you have on this topic would be greatly appreciated as well as any leads on a pair of 4355's. I heard a pair of these when I was very young and would love to own a set someday.

    Thanks,
    Rhino

    Yes, I'm familiar with the S22. They seem to be quite rare!

    Would you be able to post pictures of them for us?
    Do you have them in the EN5 enclosure by chance?

    System

    Currently listening to Philips SA1000 SACD and McIntosh MC2200 driving LSR32's. Looking for a preamp.

    Waiting to be sold:
    JBL L65A's
    McIntosh C20

    Waiting for me to decide to sell them:
    Altec 604 8G's

    Waiting for the cabinet maker:
    Pair of 1400nd. These were originally meant for the bass of a four way but will first be tried as subwoofers for the LSR32's.

    In the family room:
    Thorens 125 with SME and Shure cartridge
    McIntosh MX113 and MC250
    Hartley Holton Towers

    Components assembled for planned 4-way like the 4350 but with two of the 2235s elsewhere in the room:
    2135 frames to be reconed with 2235 kits
    probably will get new 2235's for second pair
    2202H bass/mid
    2470's
    2307's
    H92's to try in their place
    2308 lenses
    2405 supertweeters
    3107 crossovers
    5235 for low crossover

    components assembled for pa for my son
    2404's
    mid horns not decided
    2118s (yes, could do without the mid horns)
    2225J (looking for a second pair)
    2242 subs
    2-6260's
    1-6290

    Things I don't know why I have them:
    2 pairs of D123
    LE20's and LX2 crossovers
    3 ea Le10A's and PR10s (need foam, may convert 2 woofers to 2122H)
    LE8T's (need foam)
    Stephens FR80's
    Le14As that had been refoamed and resonate at 40 Hz
    EV SP12's
    EV SP8's
    EV T35's with crossovers
    1-EJ Jordan JX92

    Buried somehwere in the garage:
    Pair AR3's
    Janszens 210'swith four ES panels on each side
    Pair of Baker Auditorium 12's
    Dynaco ST35 to be rebuilt
    Citation II
    Heathkit SA2 to be rebuilt

    Jeez, it may be time for a garage sale.

    Giskard,

    Will try to attach an S-22 pic. If it works OK, will do a couple more. I think this is indeed the EN5 enclosure - you may be able to tell me for sure. Pic #1

    Very cool! Thanks for the photos. Those are the EN5C enclosures. Nice powerful system.

    Giskard,

    Thank you. I have enjoyed them very much.
    These may be for sale at some point.
    As you don't see them every day, do you (or anyone else out there) have an estimate of their value?

    Thanks,
    Rhino

    That is the 376 right?

    The S300-1 system which consisted of the 136H, LE85, HL92, 077, LX300 went for $915 each back in 1980. (Shipping weight was 52 lbs.) Basically your standard 4333B/L300A system.

    The S22-1 system which consisted of the 136H, 376, HL93, 077, LX80A, N7000 went for $1190 each back in 1980. (Shipping weight was 63 lbs.)

    The EN5C enclosure added $250 to each set of components. (Shipping weight was 78 lbs.)



    You can build your own 4350B's by finding another pair of 136H's and adding a pair of 2202H's along with the necessary network change.

    Yes, you have all of the components right.
    Those are indeed the original 376 drivers.
    Thank you very much for all your great info.
    I may need to ask your advice again in the future.
    If you know of anyone who would be interested
    in either the L-300's or the S-22's (or both)
    please send them in my direction.

    Regards,
    Rhino

    Hey, Giskard...

    What-up with the blinded-off port, here? There appears to be a shorter duct / different tuning option. What is that about, or I am delusional...?

    Different tuning options. The EN3, EN5 and EN8 enclosures were designed to accomodate numerous LCS systems.

    For the S22 the short port should probably be blocked and the long port should probably be open. I think the long port is the same length as the L300 port but I could be wrong.
