    I agree with you,JBL sounds more lively

    Have you ever compared the Salon 2's with other dome tweeter hi-end speakers?

    Obviously the 4345!

    But then you're not really in a democracy so my vote is meaningless.

    I doubt there are more than a small handful here who have heard all of those, and I am not one of them.

    which to collect?

    Don't see many 4344, 4344MK2 or 4345s for sale. Very few 4345s were built to start with and there are more clones around then originals. The 4315 is a nice smaller 4 way JBL Always wanted a set. The best I have heard is the set I own is the 4345s with a modern charged-coupled crossover. To me it is the best of vintage with a modern sound but i am bias I know.

    In terms of listening if you want the vintage JBL sound and have the space the 4345.

    If you don't the 4344.

    I prefer the look of the 4343.

    The 4344mk11 was the last revision and has more hifi sound due to the acquaplas diaphragm.
    The woofer is more sensitive and may sound lean compared to the 2235H used in the earlier 4344.

    You can't go wrong any of them.

    I have both the 4343 and 4345 I have not heard the others, both are great but you can't beat the 18in 2245 in the 4345...

    The 4345 is now in the main listening room...The 4345 is a clone ( a well made clone with a fantastic crossover made by a forum member) the 4343 is factory JBL..the 4343 are now the rears in my Home theater with 250ti's the fronts..

    if you are to get the 4343 I would upgrade the factory crossover ( get rid of the bi-amp switch) when I tried the new 4345 crossover in the 4343 it was like taking a blanket off the front of the speaker...

    next best move was upgrading from the Ashley 1001 crossover to a Bryston 10b...wow...never thought it would make that much of a difference, it does
