A few days ago, JBL introduced the L75ms, a beautiful, compact retro-style multifunctional audio system designed to connect to television or as stand-alone equipment for listening to music streaming and from network sources.

But the manufacturer has also brought forward the arrival for the fall of new speakers with which it intends to conquer the pockets of users who are looking for a model with the emblematic touch of the brand and who already have a separate amplification system.

These are the L52 Classic bookshelf monitor type passive stereo speakers, featuring a striking front design with colorful fabric and foam forming a frame that we can pull out to reveal the main drivers.

Measuring 330.2 x 196.6 x 216.2mm and in a two-way configuration, each speaker features a 0.75-inch diameter titanium dome tweeter and a fiber main woofer 5.25 inches for mid-bass frequencies which together provide a combined response of between 47 Hz and 24 KHz with a sensitivity of 85 dB.

They have an impedance of 4 ohms and support a recommended amplification power of 10 to 75 watts, and can also vary their treble response significantly by means of a control knob located on the front of the speaker, thus achieving attenuation of the high frequencies if so desired.

Its front bass-reflex system allows us to be able to place them closer to the wall than the models that mount it on the back of the box, this model being recommended for placement on specific speaker stands but also for use on computer or television furniture desks.

Pricing and availability

The new JBL L52 Classic speakers will be released in the third quarter of 2021 with a front frame in black, blue and orange for a price of around 1,000 euros per pair.
