    Peter: Components are essentially the same in both systems unless there is an alnico/ferrite magnet difference in the two systems. If you get the 4333B's up off the floor and tilted back shooting into your listening area like the L300, you will not likely hear any difference. On a good ebay day the L300 will bring more - livingroom friendly issue most likely. If I were you, I'd sell the L300's and keep the 4333B's. If you move into some extra bucks and regret selling a pair, the L300's are easier to locate. You don't see nice 4333's for sale too often. My two cents worth - you can send payment to --- just kidding!! Rick

    Which ever pair you decide to sell, you will regret it, trust me.
    I had a pair of L300's many years ago and I could still want to kick myself in the rear, every time the L300's are mentioned.

    If there is a way for you to avoid selling some speakers, then do so. I'd rather sell my car if I had to.

    Peter, both are essentialy the same speakers.....however if you do decide to sell a pair as i did (See my Icon) you'll understand which I regret selling the most. I had both. It is the L300 that I will reaquire as soon as I can.

    4333B for me. It's all about the blue baffles.

    Everyone who is anyone has to own at least one pair of JBL's sporting Studio Monitor Blue baffles.

    The 4333Bs are near Mint Condition and the L300 must have any Cosmetic.So thats it.

    Is the 4341 or 4343 much better as L300 or 4333B?

    I've never heard a 4341, but IMO there is not much of a comparison to my ears (4343 Vs L-300). The 4343s just go a little farther!

    Hi. The 4343 has a lot more "sound", power, details... If you really want to upgrade (L300/4333 or 4343) let Guido build new crossovers. The difference will be the same.

    I've done numerous baffle colors over the last quarter century and liked pretty much all of them. I even did a pair of custom 4333's exactly as shown below. I had to. I was obsessed.
