    Hope you just bought them without waiting for an answer!

    I don't have them yet. It's an unusual situation as they belong to a patient where I work in a retirement community. He did say though that he may be interested in selling. I posted these because I wasn't familiar with JBL's that had this cabinet design. I'm stumped though because I thought L88's were 70's era and these have an early 60's badge. When were the L88's introduced?

    wasn't there also a L-88P (or something like that) , that looked identical ,
    but was setup to add a mid to make it a pseudo L-100 ?

    Yes but it didn't have the Vernier circle over the bass driver. Just a sculptured grill. Also a L88+ that could be converted to the L100 with the M12 expander kit that included the midrange driver and additional crossover.

    And some design chops borrowed from the '50's Eames/Trusonic collaboration. <https://eames.com/en/blog/blog-eamestrusonicspeake> Although I believe the driver in the E-4 Quadraflex was a JBL D123.
