JBL L82 Classic MkII speakers are an updated version of the prior L82 Classic speakers, which were themselves a well loved update on an original design and this MkII version has been re-issued with many improvements.
This MkII version maintains a classic look, combined with updates to improve the sound quality without changing the inherent character of the speakers. These are fitted with the new ‘Performance Package’ that provides a step up over the previous version – this includes upgraded drivers and a bi-wirable crossover.
The cabinets feature real Walnut veneers and the Quadrex grill comes in three colours. Stands are available that tilt the speaker back slightly.
The performance package
The performance package includes improvements to the L82’s drivers. The 20 cm woofer/midrange unit has an upgraded design while the titanium dome tweeter had been ‘tweaked’ for better performance. The new woofer has a knurled fibre membrane with a rubber suspension at the front. The knurled cone is in a contrasting colour.
Additionally, there is a large voice coil in a powerful magnet system. The woofer also has a cast chassis that is mounted with no less than eight screws. The tweeter now has a titanium diaphragm that has a small scattering lens in front. This improves the dispersion of high frequencies.
The JBL Classic MKII cabinets are covered in real walnut, wood veneer, and a pair of stands are available separately that tilt the speakers back slightly. There is also a treble control for the crossover. The Quadrex grill available in black, blue or orange. The sound is dynamic with a full and warm ambience. Speaker cabinets are usually designed with rigid bracing, to reduce resonances, and provide a solid mounting for the drivers. Powerful computers can model how a particular box design will react. Wadding is also used to dampen any vibration.
