The smallest member of the JBL Classic Series, the 13inch high L52 Classic follows on the heels on the larger L100 Classic and L82 Classic models and is scaled to work in a variety of applications from standmount, to bookshelf, to tabletop, to wall-mount. The appearance of the L52 Classic echoes that of its larger siblings with a walnut wood veneer enclosure and a Quadrex foam grille available in a choice of black, blue, or orange.
The L52 Classic is a two-way design with a 0.75-inch titanium dome tweeter mated to an acoustic lens waveguide and a 5.25-inch white cone, cast-frame woofer. A front panel HF level attenuator allows the sound to be tailored to its environment. Enclosure tuning is bass-reflex via a front-firing tuned port, and a set of binding post speaker terminals provide a secure connection to speaker cables. The enclosure is finished in walnut wood veneer and includes a pair of threaded inserts on the rear panel for use with third-party wall mount brackets.
“The L52 Classic is such a compelling proposition with its big sound, small size, and attractive pricing”, said Jim Garrett, Sr. Director of Product Strategy and Planning for Harman’s Luxury Audio business unit. The JBL L52 Classic is packed and sold in mirror-imaged pairs and will be available in Q4 of 2021 with a retail price of £1,000/pair.
