JBL L60 T speakers bought them new in the 80s I believe anyone have an opinion on them, Two way speaker with nice iron stands kept in box for years.
These are very nice speakers. And they look nice too, that is if your's are still in good shape.
I had a pair of these for many years in near mint condition. They sound better than the JBL Northridge 8-inch three ways that my son has, and also had a much more balanced musical presentation than a pair of the Studio 310's that I owned for a short time.
I ended up selling my pair locally last year because they weren't being used anymore and were taking up space. I now use Focal Chorus 826V's which are in another league compared the the L60's. They also cost 2 grand so you would expect better performance.
I used to be a die-hard JBL fan but not so much anymore.
For me JBL will always be an important historical marker in the evolution of speakers. I think they were among the first to really promote and produce tweeters that gave speakers speed and detail. Their 075 bullet, the 175 potato masher, and the still highly sought after king of tweeters the 375. I have a sentimental nattachment to mine which are from 1959 which I inhereted from my father. I do have a second pair that I think would benefit from a crossover modification, yielding more bass from those big alnico woofers.
