JBL L52 Classic Bookshelf Speakers Launched
JBL has announced the smallest member of its Classic Series, the L52 Classic.
JBL's L52 Classic looks like a shrunken version of the iconic and Applause Award-winning JBL L100 thanks to its walnut wood veneer enclosure and Quadrex foam grille, which, incidentally, is available in a choice of black, blue, or orange.
The L52 Classic was actually modelled as a scaled-down version of the L82 Classic, with the 330.2mm x 196.6mm x 216.2mm (HxWxD) L52 Classic sporting a two-way design utilising a 0.75-inch titanium dome tweeter mated to an acoustic lens waveguide and a 5.25-inch white cone, cast-frame woofer. The result is a claimed sensitivity of 85 dB/2.83Vm and 47 Hz–24 kHz (-6 dB) frequency response.
We are informed there is also a premium crossover network design (@ 2.8 kHz) that ensures optimum system performance. Meanwhile, the front panel HF level attenuator allows you to tailor the sound to personal preference and your listening room.
As this is a bookshelf speaker, the L52 Classic employs a front-firing tuned bass-reflex port. Additionally, the L52 Classic can be wall-mounted thanks to a pair of threaded inserts on the rear panel for use with third-party brackets.
The JBL L52 Classic is packed and sold in mirror-imaged pairs and will be available at the beginning of Q4, 2021 (in time to make it on your Christmas list) with a retail price of US$1,000 per pair.
