JBL’s modern take on its legendary L100 loudspeaker – aka ‘the one from the Maxell tape ad’ – is now available across the UK



In 1970, JBL released the original L100 loudspeaker, a consumer version of the immensely popular JBL 4310 Pro Studio Monitor. Over the years, the iconic L100 became JBL’s best-selling loudspeaker of all time. You may remember them from the iconic 80’s Maxell TV adverts.

Now, with the new L100 Classic, they’ve done it again, sort of.

The retro design with iconic JBL styling and a vintage Quadrex foam grille pays homage to its predecessor’s storied legacy. All-new drivers, crossover network and advanced transducer technology take the performance attributes original L100 owners loved – exceptional dynamic range, crystal-clear effortless high output, and high-impact bass – and elevate them to the highest 21st century audio standards.


The Quadrex foam grilles come in a choice of three colors so you can customise your retro-ness and they deliver true audiophile-quality sound – which for £4,000 they should do frankly.

We think they’re cool though so check them out here – www.jblsynthesis.com
