IMO probably some of the best BFB speakers ever on the market. I've got all Studio II's. S312II's up front along with the S-Center II and S38IIs for LR Surround and S26II for Surround Backs. I always enjoy seeing them in someone else's theater!
I love your fabric panels! Really cool design and implementation. Definitely looking forward to seeing this one all buttoned up.
Ohhhhh yeahhhh.....!!!! JBL 4ever!!!!! LOL
I fell in love with JBL in college. Friends had Sony, Yamaha, Polk, Infinity (back when they were their own Co.), even Definitive Tech. The Definitive sounded sharp and crisp (accurate) but soulles..
But I always loved the way Mid to high end JBL's sounded.
I got a pair of JBL S-38's and an S-Center for my apartment some years ago. Cherry colored, actually pictured in the picture 2 posts back (stored in the false wall).
Then I worked at Best Buy some years ago, after college and before embarking upon my illustrious career (THICK with sarcasm...) and picked up some S310II and the s120 Sub on the employee accommodation program.
Sold the S310's after my daughter was born, my wife was concerned she would crawl and pull them over on herself. Now I wish I would not have parted with them, but I did it to make the wife happy and to buy the upgraded projector.
Then started on my long road of collecting the Studio L series. EBay and Craigslist! Remember "Bang for the Buck"!
I agree, the Studio line of JBL's are some of the best (and under rated) speakers around.
Thanks for the feedback on the panels. Kind of a "leap of faith". Honestly, they turned out better than I imagined. The hardest part was getting the angles right. I had some 61 and 31 degree angles PAIN! But putting the fabric in was a breeze and it makes a joker like me actually look like I know what I am doing!
One thing I am glad I did was paint the intermediate track. It came as a white color and I was not sure if it would show through. I would say it would have, especially with using am acoustical material. Just a tip if you are considering the track feature.
