    Thanks for the advice. Some cool pics. Are those 120Ti?
    Some day I'll have some of them blue JBLs. Almost had a nice pair of 4301b baby blues.

    I'm going to leave these L3s alone. I actually passed on a nice pair of L60T for the same price for the L3s. The L60T I know and have listened to a bit and liked them. Should have got them instead.

    Live and learn right!

    Heather will tell you (and I will agree with her), the L3 is a better speaker than the L60T. So, in that respect, you did okay! If I remember, heather modified the port on her L60T, then parted them out—or maybe sold them.

    sure looks like some. IMHO () , the 120 is the best 3 way 12 inch "bookshelf" that JBL ever produced (under $5,000) .

    As I recall, the 120ti wasn't that impressive . . . until we lifted it off the floor and placed in on a chair then we all liked it quite a lot. I think it was that session listening to our host's 4333s that sent me on my quest for my own pair which ended in the purchase of my 4345s. Still love the L7 though. Those in the pictures are one of my two pair.

    Yep, I had L60T speakers - I didn't like the rear port - it meant I had to leave clearance between them and the wall,
    so I removed the tube from the rear port, got a hole saw the same size, drilled a port hole in the front, glued the resulting sawed plug into the rear port hole,
    and had a speaker that better suited my needs. But - tried for ages and never could get more money for the speaker than the 035tia tweeters would sell for.
    So, I gutted the speakers, sold the drivers, tried to give away the boxes and finally put the cabinets on the curb.

    Phil's right - the L1, L3. L5, L7 series sound better than the older L20T, L60T, L80T series ...

    Your dog may be underemployed

    If your Malinois messes up your flat then this may be an indication of underemployment. The Malinois is much more agile and demanding than a normal German Shepherd. If you don't give it employment it will start looking for some. May be eating your shoes or your sofa. Or may be taking over leadership in the family.

    All very true. We keep her busy and she loves chasing the fast RC Boat on the lake. We hide stuff for her to find all the time and she even recycles things for us. Water bottles paper plates etc.

    But..... when she and our Anatolian Shepherd get to playing they get rough and tend to knock things over.

    We have been very lucky that the Belgian (Zoe) is not destructive. Name:  20180712_214639.jpg
