Not the big sound of old

FLACKER "Good luck and enjoy !!!", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased a pair of new JBL L890's about 2 months ago, Upon initial hook up to my Vintage 165w per channel {CONCEPT 16.5) 2 channel receiver I was a bit disappointed, They do not appear to be very efficient as they require a good deal of power to produce a similar volume as other speakers I have had on the system.

beautiful, but...

  • Summary: These are the nicest looking speakers I've ever owned. But if you want a speaker with a fuller, rounder, bassier sound that isn't as nice looking, you'll get way better sound out of the Cerwin Vegas with the 15 inch woofers. I kept hoping that I'd break these in and things would improve, but unfortunately now I regret I didn't go with the tried and true. By the way I do have a 12 inch subwoofer to compliment these, but still not nearly as good.

JBL L890 8-Inch 4-Way Dual Floorstanding Loudspeaker

Kilted, Rate it all!
17 August 2008
  • Summary: I have just unpacked my newly purchased JBL L890 from Datavision. Words of warning these units are refurbish units. They are NOT factory new. They are factory refurbished units. Shipping boxes show lots of wear, missing are factory manuals and the carpet spikes, the fiberglass sound damping mat is loose in one unit. This may be the reason they are not new. Internal box packing had extra packing around the sides. It is only luck they arrived unscratched.

Too damaged to rate

Dr. B. Borawski, Amazon
22 July 2008
  • Summary: The speakers are absolutely beautiful and are built solid. The connectors are heavy duty and gold plated. These speakers weigh a ton! Unfortunately, I can not tell you how these speakers sound. I only have one of them. Both of the speakers I were sent were damaged (shipped separately). One so severely, that the front panel would not attach and I had to send it back. It has been 3 weeks, and I still don't have my replacement.
