Hidden Wonders!
These are my first JBL speakers. CL buy locally. I had no idea they would sound so good with my Sansui tube receiver. Placed them vertically on the floor. Smooth, balanced - I don’t feel bass is weak. The tweeter is accurate and not harsh. I fail to see why LX-44 gets bad rep. I am glad I did not get lured into buying expensive, damaged L series speakers on the bay.

Purchased a pair at garage sale for $30.00 that needed new woofer surrounds ($15.00 for a DIY kit). They are built very solid and sound great. They really come alive at higher volumes when driven by a vintage receiver or amplifier with lots of power (80+ WPC).

I picked up a pair of these for $40. They needed the woofer surrounds replaced and new grill cloth. Cabinets were in pristine condition. Well worth doing. These are very fine speakers that pair well with some of my vintage Scott receivers.

If you have a chance to get these even with bad surrounds they are worth a refoam. Solid enclosures. Quality drivers and crossovers. Excellent in every way. I have them connected to a 1976 Technics SA-5460 receiver. Music sounds great. No boominess. Just clear uncolored sound.

I purchased at Goodwill for $14.00. Put new foam surrounds on. They sound pretty amazing with my vintage Sansui AU919 integrated amp pushing them. I also use a old Polk 10 200 W sub with them. It really fills my listening area with wonderful rich sound.



re: JBL LX44

I purchased my LX44s in 1992 (retail was $700 with tax & shipping) because I couldn’t afford the JBL L100s at $1,375. I have never regretted that choice/purchase (especially when I shipped them to Warsaw and back a few years later – they are extremely sturdy and half the weight of the L100s). I recently blew the rubber out of both woofers; replaced both with woofers from a guy in Florida who re-foams original JBLs. Probably my imagination, but I think they may even sound better today than 25 years ago: still clean, pure, uncolored sound with zero distortion… as loud as my kids ever choose to turn up the Polk 240W amp that drives them. I love them!
