| JBL L26 loudspeakers - walnut :|
The L26 was developed through technology that made JBL the leading speaker manufacturer for professional use. It meets the same stringent requirements as JBL studio monitors, providing clear crisp reproduction, freedom from distortion and lack of colouration - all reasons most major recording groups of the era insisted on JBL for live and recording playback.
The L26 achieves the open effortless performance that is characteristic of JBL loudspeaker systems. It even approaches within a few decibels, the thunderous volume levels required of JBL studio monitors. Each component of the L26, low frequency loudspeaker, high frequency direct radiator tweeter, frequency dividing network, and enclosure - has been designed to function as part of the complete system, optimizing performance and efficiency without sacrificing definition, or the ability to accurately reproduce the fleeting bursts of energy, known as transients, so essential to realism.
The L26 uses a ported enclosure to increase efficiency and dynamic range rather than a sealed acoustic suspension enclosure which achieves bass response at the expense of efficiency, dynamic range and transient reproduction
Efficiency is important for two reasons :
1] it permits the use of a relatively low power, moderately priced amplifier, and
2] it allows the amplifier to operate at low power levels for similar sound output, providing the reserve necessary to achieve full dynamic range and excellent transient reproduction.
Efficiency and outstanding reproduction make the L26 ideal for the music listener wanting to combine superb performance with compact size
