 JBL L52 Classic loudspeakers 



 ***Limited Black Edition*** (see below) 


Designed and engineered in JBL’s world-famous acoustic engineering facility in Northridge, California, the L52 Classic is a 5.25-inch (130mm) 2-way loudspeaker featuring JBL’s advanced acoustic technologies in combination with the award-winning retro-inspired style of its larger family members.


The vintage design of the L52 Classic features a genuine walnut wood veneer cabinet and choice of Quadrex foam grilles.


Beneath this iconic exterior is a loudspeaker built from modern acoustic components, delivering legendary JBL sound sure to please any music lover.


JBL L52 Classic Highlights:
• Satin walnut furniture-grade wood veneer

• High-frequency level attenuator

• Mirror-imaged stereo pairs

• Wall-mount capable

• 100% Sustainably packaged



 ***New in 2023—Limited Black Edition*** (see below) 


For a limited time, JBL’s iconic Classic Series passive hi-fi and powered streaming loudspeakers will be available in a special Black Edition version that showcases these highly popular models in a stylish and sophisticated new look. 
Available on four models – the passive hi-fi L100, L82, and L52, and the powered streaming L75ms music system – these special production versions all include the Black Edition Appearance Package that consists of a high-gloss black painted cabinet finish, unique gold labels on the front and rear of the passive models, and a black Quadrex foam grille with a unique gold JBL logo accent.
In addition, the L100 and L82 will include the Black Edition Performance Package that includes acoustic refinements to all drivers, and an upgraded crossover network with a premium bi-wire input terminal cup.
While the popularity and acoustic performance of the Classic Series loudspeakers cannot be denied, their decidedly retro walnut wood veneer and brightly colored grilles may not fit with every décor and interior. The Black Edition Appearance Package transforms their look in a most elegant way. Each enclosure is treated to a multi-step, labor-intensive painting process that starts with a black base coat and ends with a luxurious high-gloss finish, resulting in a mirror-like exterior that reflects its environment to the eye. The high-gloss process also provides a subtle radius to the edges of the cabinet giving it a softer look overall. To complement the black cabinets, special gold labels are used on the passive hi-fi models (L100, L82, and L52) on the front of the loudspeaker around the attenuator level controls and on the rear labels above the input terminal cup. Black Quadrex foam grilles are accented with unique gold JBL badges to visually identify these models as special edition products. The Black Edition Appearance Package elevates these models to a modern feel that is at home in virtually any décor.
The larger passive hi-fi models L100 and L82 also include the Black Edition Performance Package that offers improvements over the standard L100 Classic and L82 Classic models. The Performance Package includes an upgraded woofer design that benefits from improvements to its linearity helping to reduce distortion. The tweeter and midrange drivers have also been treated to refinements that deliver higher levels of performance. These updates come with a change to the crossover design to provide dual inputs for use in bi-wiring applications. The new input terminal cup includes dual sets of premium gold-plated binding post terminals providing for a secure connection to a variety of loudspeaker cable and connector types. The Performance Package delivers overall improvements to the sound of these two models adding to their uniqueness within the Classic Series loudspeaker range.
The Black Edition models will only be available for a limited time before they are gone forever. They offer a unique combination of award-winning design, legendary JBL sound, and limited-edition appeal in a beautiful product that stands above the rest.
