Power, Punch, Dynamics, Clarity, and the Promise of Fun: JBL L52 Classic Bookshelf Speakers Feature Compact Form Factor for Easy Fit
Boasting performance similar to that of their "bigger brothers," L82 Classic, in a smaller footprint, JBL L52 Classic bookshelf speakers play with lively sound and pleasing clarity. Whether used as a standmount or bookshelf model L52 Classic delivers wide soundstages, taut bass, punchy dynamics, and fun-loving energy you wouldn't be wrong to associate with models twice its size. Designed in JBL's private Northridge, California, facility, L52 Classic features the company's advanced acoustic technologies and signature retro-inspired style.
For satisfying midrange and bass, a 5.25-inch Pure Pulp cone woofer delivers low-frequency specs down to 47 hertz. To handle vivid, subtle details, a 3/4-inch titanium dome tweeter mates to an acoustic lens waveguide. A front port and adjustable high-frequency controls add to the versatility of a speaker whose compact 13 x 7.74 x 8.51-inch size invites you to experience lively plyback in even the smallest spaces. On the outside, the genuine walnut wood veneer and three available Quadrex foam grille colors mean that each mirror-imaged pair of L52 Classics will enhance any room with vintage style.
What's more, you can place L52 Classic on a shelf or stand, or mount it on a wall. If you have any questions about why this speaker is one of the most acclaimed models in its price range, or how it can be utilized, reach out to a Music Direct audio consultant today.
