jbl xd outdoor SERIES
20% OFF both models

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

These are the outdoor brothers to the JBL Stage Architectural Series offering ceiling and wall-mounted speaker systems, the JBL Stage XD Series are all-weather speakers are designed for both outdoor and indoor use and are intended to be particularly flexible mounting solutions and high-dynamics sound.

Sustainable speakers

The JBL Stage XD Series models are the first repairable, IP67-certified outdoor speakers on the market. The vast majority of outdoor speakers are unserviceable. Meaning that often you cannot open the cabinets to service, or even if you were able to open the hood, replacement drivers and crossover parts are unavailable individually. These speakers are engineered to be disassembled and driver and crossover can be repaired or replaced, if they become damaged by weather or extreme use.

We think that’s a great move to improving products especially at reasonable price levels.  Outdoors and the Ohio winters are a rough neighborhood for any outdoor speaker. Having service options is a welcomed engineering and marketing direction.

SUMMARY

The JBL XD Series is a thoroughly weatherized version of the acclaimed JBL Stage line and their ease of mounting, quality of build, long-term serviceability coupled with exceptional acoustic performance and reasonable pricing makes them our Outdoor Speaker of the Year for 2023.

JBL XD SERIES OVERVIEW

JBL L100 & L82 ON SALE
20% OFF!

JBL delivered the new JBL L100 Classic to a hesitant audience. 

Audio reviewers, listeners and retailers were expecting the new L100 to be just a trivial freshening of a tired 70’s classic, certainly iconic but certainly a dated speaker COMPETING in aN ULTRA-competitive marketplace.

WRONG!

What you discover is that JBL’s engineering commitment and resources – JBL elevated the L100’s performance – establishing it as a class-leader and in many ways,  made it the speaker to beat in its form-factor (design, shape and size) and always important, price range.

The common thread that unites the reviews of the L100 are that “it keeps pulling me back to play more music!” In our book, there isn’t a better compliment for any speaker than that. JBL took the L100 re-issue very, very seriously. They rolled up their sleeves, did their homework and delivered another classic.

The L100 is a classic. Not because it’s a recreation of the classic L100, but because they made the new L100 an outstanding speaker that is in every way as relevant to 2022 as the L100 was in 1972.”

“In my listening room, KEF’s sleek, small KC62 sub merged successfully with three high-quality loudspeakers… In each case, the KC62 subwoofer did more than add bass: It took an already great speaker and made it greater. Isn’t that what a subwoofer is supposed to do? .”
~ STEREOPHILE Magazine, usa

 

“The Eagles’ unplugged “Hotel California,” which has strong bass-drum content around 40Hz with “undertones” well below had high-impact, gut-punching slam.

There may be other mini subs on the market, but none I know of go quite as low in quite as small and elegant a package as what KEF has managed with the KC62.”

SOUND AND VISION, USA

A FEW REMAINING OF THE Flagship three-way floorstander r11’S

The largest model in the R Series combines four bass drivers and the latest generation Uni-Q for a powerful and refined sound. With hybrid aluminium bass drivers and a 12th generation Uni-Q for mid and treble the mighty R11is extremely capable. Using technology from KEF Reference it delivers clarity, finesse and serious bass.

Other R Series speakers are available at reduced pricing as KEF makes the switch to all META.  The most desirable finishes sell out first. This is an amazing purchase.

kef r3’S CLOSEOUT WITH PREMIUM FINISHES STILL AVAILABLE

The R3s are a three-way design, with a dedicated bass driver. Such a configuration means that each driver – tweeter, midrange and bass – are optimized to work in its specific frequency band and tuned with less compromise than a two-way alternative would demand. The trade-off tends to be the greater cost and complicity of trying to combine three drive units to work as a cohesive whole. That’s why most speaker companies don’t bother at this price level.  Couple this speaker with the KEF KC62 and you have a world-class but compact loudspeaker system. Terrific value!

Just the R11 and the R3 speakers are still available at reduced pricing as KEF makes the switch to all META.  The most desirable finishes sell out first. This is an amazing purchase.

“But no matter how great value it is, (kef r1) such a product will always be out of the reach of most, so that’s where the KEF R3 comes in… the R3’s offer a large chunk of the Reference 1’s engineering content and sonic performance at a fraction of the cost. This is one to buy with confidence.”
