    Hello. I use since 1978 loaded with a Quad 405 and for 10 years in direct output of my computer and a sound card Sound Blaster X-FI, remisent nine for 3 years through Ebay-woofer-tweeter new medium of secondhand (copy remade in the usa) to cater to those looking for parts) .The sound is still as fabulous is the only forum that permetrait me to redo partitions bass guitar tuned !!! .Evidement The sound of L100 depends a lot on the amplifier with which it is used (and the listening room is also important). 405 being so transparent that the L100 remains neutral on all register.
    Speaker also used in the recording studio.
    The only enceite I could put at the same level are the Tannoy 38 (2 channels with built tweeter) but are more or at prices beyond reasonable

    I return to these speakers I see regularly go on the canvas in the classifieds for first say that I've owned two pairs: one classical and the other with the speakers alignment. (No difference in listening).
    Listening first point: it is physiological, very tough on the ends and not hinged in the middle. It's pretty playful but lacks depth and articulation, it is just okay. Where it gets complicated is when compared to another speaker. The DITTON 66 for the same price, and sometimes less, secondhand, literally crush. The PIERRE ETIENNE LEON FULL or ML4 are also much higher. The SPENDOR BC1 or stay Americain 315 ALTEC offered well below the price level are much higher. If I had to buy a pair…

If I had to buy a pair of L 100 or 4311 it would only be a good deal since, however, sell it the same day of the announcement if you are not too greedy.

    Purchased not long ago, these legendary speakers complement my small collection, including my Kef 103 / 2, pure English.

    Their listening is quite different. We go from a subtle to medium well rockn'roll with a serious fantastic. As for their power handling, it is quite surprising.

    Also notable thing, these are very accurate JBL and pleasant even at very low volume. It's rare enough to be reported.

    In short, if you like rock and modern music, go for it! these speakers are euphoric!

I got a pair long ago, I was even allowed to add sound at the time with mine a ballroom with 300 people, full throttle overnight without flinching, making the whole room dancing!

    They are not recommended for their particular sound, quite colorful, and lacking in finesse, classical fans, but music lovers modern electronics.

    The model of time does not spun high in the high end, the following versions (which have evolved in the range Pro Series 4312) were treated with dome tweeter that improvement in this direction, but also by losing some original signature ....

    I also have used them one night for a private party ... and we were 200 ...
    it amuses me to read on various forums that this or that is not appropriate for the sound ... When I was a kid, I did not think that far ... The Drive ...

    So one night, I paired my JBL L26 with 4311 a buddy of an unfortunate amp ...
    hi-fi ... never let go ... one dared ... The stuff did not complain: it was built for! I was very surprised to see that my L26 had little to envy of her sisters greatest reputation ... the same desire, the same generosity, the same excellence: JBL sound, unique, magical ... What strength of character!

    I still laugh when I see what sells today in hi-fi "esoteric" ...
    so many people who spend all their good money to find the perfect sound ..
    and cold, soulless ... it's expensive for 30 000 EUR ...

    JBL built crates a bit wild, a little strange, perhaps, at some filtering, considered too simple by some purists ... but they have just given life to their enclosures ...

    (I do not criticize Cabasse ... they well merit too! It's just a matter of taste)
    I have done private parties for friends for over 10 years with my L26 ... I have abused but they accepted it without any problems ... and there was still the subject ... w 35 when they announce, I can not believe ... since it is well worth 10 times their alleged w 500 hi-fi today ... and 100 times their sound flat and cold ...

    I have scorched my tweeters one day, but it was in use monitor, because of poor micro manip ... worse than the last trumpet ...

    but I would not have so many people dancing if I had the A36 ... oh no, not in agreement ... the bass are not nearly as involved ... I repeat it is an opinion and I often hear: it is a poorly-done for ... and costly for the time ... the A36 were at a slightly less expensive than the A100 ... they wanted to do the same ... but what is that far! strictly speaking, they are good for drowsiness club chair ... But Watts announced 50 against 35 for L26, I doubt it ... sufffit to play together for the check ... it is the L26 which is closest to the L100's .... and for my taste, there is plenty of medium ... they have also their personalities, their character ...

    One guy said on a U.S. forum that there was still a lot of JBL in churches ...

    Another said, "you see, even God loves JBL"

    hey hey

    And Gainsbourg, in paradise, I'm sure he smokes the cigar with God ... and two L100

    Maybe they dance?

    The 100 I use for 3 years (previously Cabasse Sampan) and I felt like my redcouvrir discothque: precision of sound in all registers, grave exceptional etc ... The only inquitude I covers the Longva Alnico motors which are said to be dmagntisent. Could someone - I reassure my fears.
    Carriage by JBL's, I acquired 4311B: big dception comparatively low average mids and tweeters that seem to overlap. I did change the filters (the original ones are actually a little summary). It's better but this is not the L 100. So I am looking for L100.

    I have 15 days from the L100 Century. Fuelled initially by a McIntosh amp 6200, Harman-Kardon CD player 970, Oehlbach connectors.
    They are great, everything has been said already but we can only repeat, it's really great! They have flaws, of course, like all speakers, tinting, but frankly compared to what we listen to today, it's worth the trip!
    Now I feed them through an amp built Dartzeel (2 x 250W), this big change, the reader does not follow at all, but still, what plays! The differences compared to McIntosh, is more open, comprehensive, robust, warm, melodic, more aggressive, in short it is much better, good price is not the same.

    I reconnected the McIntosh, it changes it is clear, but his record is not bad!
    In the past I have had JBL 4311B is not the same thing, the bass is quickly invasive, midrange and treble overlap, listening is more bland. Now there is the 4311 first version, it is closer to the L100, but I could compare the 4310 and L100 is very very similar, so if you want to invest in a vintage JBL speaker pick up a 4310 or L100 Century, the other models in the range, is less spectacular in my opinion.

    bought in October for 200 euros in cash and perfect cache and HP has the new state they are tip top!!
    all details are vividly both the instruments in the track.
    the bass and super.
    what about the other myth of the brand which today jbl what sells miles and cents are not worth anything (sound dull and dry).
    So if you're lucky enough to find buy instead of what sells today.
    I had other brand but I'll always jbl home.
