Can you JBL experts rate these speakers? How good are they?
You can find out the technical specs here:http://manuals.harman.com/JBL/HOM/Te...900MV%20ts.pdf
They originally sold for around $250 each over 15 years ago, so expect low prices accordingly. The crossover and driver complement is interesting, in that the 8" and 6" drivers essentially reproduce the same frequencies, all the way up to the single crossover point at 3500 Hz. Plus, how often do you see a 6" and 8" together, along with a composite tweeter? Answer: almost never.
The L5 had an 8", 6", 4" and Ti tweeter, so close but not really.
They should be decent units with a relatively high 92 dB sensitivity, but they're a very simple two-way with three drivers, if that makes any sense.
The real question is how do you like them? That's the only answer that matters.
