JBL have a new version of the evergreen L100 over fifty years after it was first launched. The L100 Classic 75 features the same iconic, 1970s-style retro design as the JBL L100 Classic, with vintage JBL styling including an black Quadrex foam grille and teak wood veneer cabinets. With only 750 pairs, the exclusive loudspeaker features a unique signed rear-badge and certificate of authenticity, commemorating 75th years in our homes.
Acoustically, the L100 Classic 75 features an improved woofer suspension design and a revised crossover network to include bi-wire capabilities with dual sets of gold-plated binding posts. The L100 Classic 75 is sold as a matched pair system and includes a set of JS-120 floor stands. The entire system ships inside a specially-crafted wooden crate.
The L100 Classic 75 features the JT025Ti2-4 1-inch (25mm) Titanium dome tweeter mated to a waveguide with an acoustic lens for optimal integration to the JM125PC-8 5-inch (125mm) cast-frame, pure-pulp cone midrange driver located directly below. The vertical HF and MF transducer arrangement is slightly offset to the right of the woofer below, with HF and MF attenuators located on the the front baffle. Low frequencies are delivered by the JW300SW-8 12-inch (300mm) cast-frame, white pure-pulp cone woofer operating in a bass-reflex enclosure system that is tuned via a single, front-firing port tube with flared exit.
The JBL L100 Classic 75 will be available beginning in May 2021 and retails at $5,500 a pair, no UK price has yet been announced.
