    JBL S38 and S Center II opinion

    Hello, I'm looking at these speakers to finish off my HT. I'm using Thiel 1.5s for my surrounds and JBL L20T for the rear surrounds. I would like to get a pair of speakers that could be mounted onto the wall for my surrounds. What do you think? Can I get something better at this price point?

    JBL 705P Circuitry?

    As mentioned elsewhere I've just upgraded to a pair of JBL 705Ps. To feed them I've assembled PiCorePlayer on a Pi4 with a HifiBerry SPDIF HAT. This feeds the AES input nicely. So it's an all-digital signal path. Or is it? Does anyone here have an insight into the internals of the 70x series...

    JBL Control 28-1-WH - Teardown, inside pics, personal thoughts

    Hello, I'm welcoming you with a new teardown: JBL Control 28-1 passive speakers meant to be used indoor and outdoor. Given that it's an outdoor speaker too, I do not expect it to sound as good as an indoor speaker, given rougher and water-proof drivers membranes, anti UV exterior plastic etc...

    Anyone has experience with JBL S3900 and S9900?

    I am considering the next upgrade to be one of these 2 speakers. They are audiophile speakers, but deeply rooted in pro audio methodology. The 2" compression driver in S3900 vs the 4" in S9900 would probably my biggest consideration. The price is obviously ridiculous for s9900, and high...

    https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2023/04/crooks-are-stealing-cars-using-previously-unknown-keyless-can-injection-attacks/ Those pesky thieves can be so clever sometimes. Disguising tools to break into the CAN-bus and steal modern automobiles. A favorite being a JBL speaker.

    JBL PRX900 are PA speakers which are optimised for high output. They are active, relatively cheap, easy to get and have an internal DSP. JBL is nice enough to provide a lot of datas for these speakers. I used the data to generate the spinorama and derive some information. Here is the...

    JBL Studio 520c vs ELAC Debut 2.0 C5.2?

    I currently have the 520C in use with my Studio 580's but came across a local deal for the ELAC Debut 2.0 C5.2 for cheap but wondering if it's even worth trying. I know the Elac is not a 3-way but would it be even slightly better then the 520c? AVR is Denon x1600h

    JBL L82/L100-inspired bookshelves

    I recently fell in love with the walnut veneer and burnt orange quadrex foam grilled of the (new) JBL L82/L100. I also found out that you can purchase the grilles, or a fairly good clone of the foam, for a reasonable amount of money. So, I’m looking to make something in the same dimensions as...
