old JBL 100s versus new JBL 100s

Crutchfield customer from Newark, DE on 12/20/2020

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought 4 JBL 100s in 1975 and still have them and run them today as my principle speakers at my east coast home. They still work beautifully. I tested them at audio stores in 1975 against the best of the day using my own music selection and they traunced everyone. Far better than Bose 501s and Bose 901s, Klips and Sony speakers, etc. (the 901s clipped the deep lower end, and the JBLs did not). The new classic JBL 100s are for my west coast house and are as good or better that the ones I bought in 1975. The clarity and separation of sound across the spectrum from high to middle to low is amazing and unbeatable. The look is identical to the old versions and the sound is as good or better (the tweeter seem to sound better in the new version). The new version wire connections are better and easier to use than the old versions as well.

Pros: sound quality

Cons: heavy for a "bookshelf" speaker

Time capsule

Crutchfield customer from San Jose, CA on 6/29/2020

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

If you have the money to splurge on a Hi-Fi system then buy these speakers and a used $50 amp. I paired them with a basic 40W NAD integrated amplifier. There is plenty of volume headroom. The speakers really standout with guitar acoustics and solo or duet vocals. Total vintage look built with modern components so the the sound quality defies the enclosure.

Pros: A feast for the ears and eyes.

Cons: Obviously there are better options if your goal is best performance for price. These offer great sound and a great vintage look to match.

JBL L100 Classic

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Always wanted JBL L100 classic speakers when I was a kid and could never afford. They sound amazing. Good sound stage. Could use a little more bottom end but I use a sub for that.

Pros: Music sound really good. They Rock.

Cons: Expensive but worth it.

The perfect speakers

Crutchfield customer from Austin, TX on 11/9/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My high school orchestra had a pair of L100s, and we used to go in during lunch hour and crank LL Cool J and Beastie Boys. I've always loved JBLs since then. I have a pair of JBL L20Ts that I bought a few years later in college, and have always wondered what happened to the "special" JBL speakers. Well, it turns out JBL has a high-end "Synthesis" line of specialty high-end speakers. When I saw these pop up on Crutchfield, I decided it was time (after 30 years) for me to upgrade my L20Ts. I'm still breaking in the woofers, but the sound is amazing. I upgraded my whole system... I also purchased the Arcam SA20 and am using the Yamaha WXC-50 as a source (with Tidal). With this setup, the definition is unbelievable.. I can pick out each individual instrument and voice, right down to the string fingerings on a violin (I'm a violinist). Yes, the speakers are big -- but it's a nice mid-century modern vibe that looks great in our family room. If you're on the fence about these... go ahead and pull the trigger.

Pros: Great sound - doesn't matter the genre: classical, jazz, rap, rock

Cons: None
