    L166's for $500 ? Wish that was the case around here. More like $800 if you want a pair without the tweeters pushed in. L150's,240ti's would be a good choice depending if you prefer passive or ported.

    I cannot believe the ripoff price of the new JBL 100 T3. Are you kidding me?
    Who runs this modern bogus JBL company. They should be sued for false advertising and fake quality and for price gouging.
    I just can't stand these modern BS prices using the past speakers to gouge modern consumers and some of you falling for this trash koolaid made in China modern JBL components garbage.

    I HAD a pair of older Maggies .. nice highs & mids, but NO bass. Maybe the newer ones are better ?

    couldn't run them w/o a sub , and that still left a hole in the upper bass.
    It's easier to try than to prove it can't be done

    Rage much?

    Sheesh, dude needs to chill TFO.

    Besides, you're factually incorrect about the model.

    I have owned various L series through the 80s/90s and have loved them all. They definitely have the punch you want...especially the L80T/T3 or L100T/T3...but depending on the partnering equipment may get a bit fatiguing at higher volumes. The L5/L7 are better again. The Ti series ie 120/240/250Ti takes refinement to another level ie flat and neutral but can sound punchy with the right music and amplification. Theres of course the XPL series and European Ti series which are great as well. Room positioning also goes a long way to getting the sound you want.
    Currently own and use JBL 250Ti,250Ti Classic,18Ti,L100T and L20T

    Seems the newer technology wouldn't require any fiddling about with....foams etc

    Appreciate the opinions of the longtime members!!!
    the L100 T3 is one of the best bargains out there. A Mcintosh would be a match made in heaven. Street price $500 - 700.
