A Modern Classic

For more than 70 years, JBL has been a pioneer in the art of sound reproduction. In 1970, JBL released the original L100 loudspeaker, a consumer version of the immensely popular JBL 4310 Pro Studio Monitor. Over the years, the iconic L100 became JBL’s best-selling loudspeaker of all time. 
Now, with the new L100 Classic, a legend is reborn. The retro design with iconic JBL styling and a vintage Quadrex foam grille pays homage to its predecessor’s storied legacy. All-new drivers, crossover network and advanced transducer technology take the performance attributes original L100 owners loved – exceptional dynamic range, crystal-clear effortless high output, and high-impact bass – and elevate them to the highest 21st century audio standards.

Don’t just hear your music. Feel it!
The genuine walnut veneer enclosure and Quadrex foam grille in a choice of three colors allow the L100 Classic to fit seamlessly and elegantly into any decor. The L100 Classic may also be stand mounted with optional JBL metal stands for maximum installation flexibility.

Engineered for Excellence

Backed by decades of engineering pedigree along with the world’s finest engineering and testing resources, the L100 Classic leverages the latest technological evolutions in acoustics to deliver true audiophile-quality sound. The newly developed JT025Ti1 titanium dome tweeter is mated to a waveguide with an acoustic lens for optimal integration with the 105H-1 polymer-coated, pure pulp cone midrange.
The JW300PW-8 12-inch white pure pulp cone woofer operating in a bass-reflex enclosure cleanly delivers powerful, moving bass via a
single front-firing port tube with flared ends. The mid- and high-frequency L-pad attenuators on the front baffle pay homage to its legendary namesake. No detail has been overlooked.
The L100 Classic is internally braced and features a 25mm-thick baffle. This means that the only sound you get from the speakers is the emotion-grabbing audio produced by the transducers. With power, clarity, and precision, the L100 Classic delivers the total package. Remember the first time you heard your favorite song through a great set of speakers and it gave you goosebumps? It’s like that, but better.
We didn’t design the L100 Classic so you could just listen to your music. We designed it so all of your senses would be heightened when you listened to your music. We designed it so your music puts you in the front row of the concert. We designed it to evoke your most pleasant musical memories. We designed it for you.
