L100 Classic


In 1970, JBL released the iconic L100 Loudspeaker. Over the years, the L100 became the bestselling loudspeaker in JBL’s history. In 2018, we are proud to bring you the JBL L100 Classic, a modern take on a time-honored legend.


The Classic features vintage styling, including a retro-inspired design and iconic Quadrex foam grille, along with newly developed acoustic technology and designs for elite performance. The 1-inch titanium dome tweeter is mated to a waveguide with an acoustic lens for optimum integration with the 5-inch pure-pulp cone midrange driver directly below it. Powerful bass is provided by a 12-inch cast-frame, white pure-pulp cone woofer in a bass-reflex enclosure, tuned via a single front-firing port tube. The high-frequency and mid-frequency L-pad attenuators on the front baffle preserve the classic features of this iconic legend.  



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.
