JBL L112


The L112 is JBL's most advanced bookshelf loudspeaker system, a three-way design featuring wide frequency response and exceptionally low distortion.

A new high resolution dividing network gives the L112 superior transient response, and the mirror-imaging of the stereo pair offers a stable, accurate stereo image.

The combination of a new high frequency dome radiator, a powerful midrange driver, and the low-distortion SFG low frequency loudspeaker give the L112 state-of-the-art bookshelf speaker performance.

The L 112's were advanced speakers at the time of their production in the early 80's. They are a fantastic performing speaker rated up to 300 watts but with a decent 89 db efficiency that appealed to rock and roll music fans mostly, but played everything quite well. The foam surrounds on the woofer are known to degrade and had to be replaced every 10 -15 years. These continue to be sought after as valued vintage equipment and still perform well in todays market of goods and in good/ partially refurbished condition sell for $800-$1400 US/pr.
