    My JBL XPL200A's

    Contemplating selling my babies... The finishes are in great condition, the grills are in tact (and no rips I think), Woofers re foamed, drivers all in great condition, manuals, JBL stands.

    What is the going price for a pair?

    Whaaa...?

    DOUBLE WHAT?

    I was just in SoCal yesterday with my pickup, and I would have given you $100 cash, no questions asked!

    Seriously, though, think twice about what you're doing. You might be able to get a nice price for them, but it's unlikely you'll be able to get something better for the $$$ you receive. If you're just selling them for the $$$ and not to replace them, that money will soon be gone and so will your speakers.

    Of course, many of us have been in situations where we needed $$$ more than hi-fi gear, so if it's an emergency sale, we're hoping for the best outcome. I can't put a market price on them because I don't think I could ever sell mine.
    Out.

    Not an emergency sale

    guys, I have had them for 25 years, and loved them. moving up in my HT system and I have always been hampered by my center setup. i have 2 L20t's for centers and they just dont keep up with the xpl's.

    i work in the industry and can replace these with B&W or KEF with matching centers and atmos setup.

    i have sonus faber for my 2 ch system and have owned some big logans. The XPl 200a is an amazing speaker, just wish i had a center to match.

    I think XPL series is very popular,in Chinese second hand market, XPL 140 is pricing 4000RMB,XPL 160 pricing 6000 RMB XPL 200A pricing 8000-10000 RMB.
    In 2014,this seller ask for 23000RMB for whole series
    Simply you can buy a single XPL140 for center.

    Fortunately, the sale would not be in China, it would be in California, the original home of the JBLs -
    and they are respected and well rated by those who know.

    In truth, Paul, perhaps you need to buy or build something to better match them
    if you want to upgrade your centers from the L20T - say, an LC2 or newer center

    Center woes

    unfortunately I only have a little over 9 inches of height for the center... the L20t works, but not much else in the JBL world.

    i could piece together something in a different cabinet...

    China loves JBL

    The Chinese and other Asians love JBL speakers. I think they are appreciated more there than in the USA. I think it is primarily because of the Asian market that JBL currently makes any high end speakers at all.

    I could take a set of XPL140's and modify them. Create a new cabinet use the tweeter, mid and two of the woofers with the same dividing network (and some reworking of the crossover), or, Use two of the L20t's woofers with a tweeter and a mid...

    Could work and would be much less expensive...

    What do you all think?

    While what you say is correct, if given a choice ... they''ll pick Boze,
    Advent , AR , nearly any (perceived) quality US brand is desired.

    They seem to ignore Japan made, even if it's better than the US competitor.

    Euro brands are not well known there. Now the whole equation changes if you
    switch from talking speakers to electronics.

    You are right,JBL is very popular in China,but not for its hi end speakers,for its applications in many filelds such as cinema,meeting hall,theater,living concert,etc

    Because JBL entered Chinese market so early,say eighties,nearly every audio engineer knows JBL,JBL is well known as its cost/performance,now Bose and Klipsch are very common in China,many cars and computers have Bose and Harman speakers in it,i like Avalon,Wilson audio,Westlake too,but they are too expensive.
    We choose JBL not considering whether it is Mexico made,Japan made,or U.S made,we just consider its qulity and price.

    Of course,modified XPL 140 is much better matching your XPL200A.
