Modelled on the JBL L100 Classic, the limited edition JBL L100 Classic 75 is designed to showcase the engineering and design displayed by JBL over the last 75 years.

75 years after JBL’s founding and 51 years after the introduction of JBL’s iconic L100 Century loudspeakers, the two events are celebrated and commemorated with the launch of the limited edition JBL L100 Classic 75.

The L100 Classic 75 features the same 1970’s-style retro design as the JBL L100 Classic, with vintage JBL styling including an iconic black Quadrex foam grille and teak wood veneer cabinets. With only 750 pairs of this historic product available, the exclusive loudspeaker features a unique signed rear-badge and Certificate of Authenticity, commemorating its 75 year in our homes.

“We have seen tremendous success with the latest L100 Classic model that we introduced in the fall of 2018” said Jim Garrett, Senior Director, Product Strategy and Planning, Luxury Audio, HARMAN. “We thought there was no better way to honour the 75th anniversary of the JBL brand than with a limited edition version of what is perhaps our most iconic loudspeaker of all time. This one-of-a-kind loudspeaker is destined to become a highly sought-after model by music lovers around the world.”

Teak Veneer

The most immediately striking feature of the L100 Classic 75 is the teak wood veneer that graces all sides of the loudspeaker enclosure. The wood finish is complemented by a black Quadrex foam grille accented with a gold and black JBL logo. Special edition badges are found on the front and rear of the loudspeaker including a commemorative plaque that includes the signature of the principal system engineer, Chris Hagen, as well as the individual pair number out of the total 750 pair production run. Acoustically, the L100 Classic 75 features an improved woofer suspension design and a revised network to include bi-wire capabilities via a premium input cup with dual sets of gold-plated binding posts. The L100 Classic 75 is sold as a matched pair system and includes a set of JS-120 floor stands. The entire system ships inside a specially-crafted wooden crate with limited edition artwork on the side panels.

Drivers

The L100 Classic 75 features the JT025Ti2-4 1-inch (25mm) Titanium dome tweeter mated to a waveguide with an acoustic lens for optimal integration to the JM125PC-8 5-inch (125mm) cast-frame, pure-pulp cone midrange driver located directly below. The vertical HF and MF transducer arrangement is slightly offset to the right of the woofer below, with HF and MF attenuators located on the upper left of the front baffle. Low frequencies are delivered by the JW300SW-8 12-inch (300mm) cast-frame, white pure-pulp cone woofer operating in a bass-reflex enclosure system that is tuned via a single, front-firing port tube with flared exit.

Price And Availability

The JBL L100 Classic 75 will be available beginning in May 2021 and retails at $5,500 a pair.
