Default JBL 4367 Studio Monitors VS L300/Summit?

No 4367's in my area to audition......I currently have a Like New set of L300/Summit speakers that work perfectly...(for those that have never heard these...they live up to their reputation!) I plan on building a new setup and was wondering if someone had 4367's and have heard L300's could elaborate on similarities. I know this is a long shot, but who knows. The L300 sound, especially vocals from the horn are amazing. They both have 15" Woofers but are 40-years apart on driver/crossover design and development.

thanks,

Tom

Tom - the Mona Lisa was never improved upon. Your L300s are very special. The 4367s will certainly sound different, but better?

I've heard both, but its been about 30 years since I've heard a set of L300's. A friend of mine (a JBL and Revel dealer) has a set of 4367's that he uses in his personal listening room at home and they are fantastic. I don't know if they are "better" than the L300's, but they warm and rich sounding, with all of the detail and dynamics one would expect from a horn speaker - but without any perceptible horn "coloration". They (JBL) sometimes set up a room at RMAF with 4367's. Perhaps they do that at other shows too? It's definitely a speaker that is worth auditioning.

You should be able to find people who have made a direct comparison here;

Default L300's vs 4367

I have L-300's with the Nelson Pass crossover. Drivers are factory correct. Foam surround about 5 yrs old.

The 4367 is more accurate and more dynamic, more audiophile correct. The bass on the L-300 is a bit fuller sounding (in a good way), imaging not nearly up to the 4367 ability.

For pure pleasure I like my L-300's, warts and all!

More to the point however the wife, (Ms. Music Junkie) loves how they sound and doesn't want them to leave the listening room

You are welcome Tom, there are certainly better speakers than the L-300, but very few I can think of that are more fun to listen through.

I do like the crossover change, you can find the article on the web. They potentially don't play quite a loud with but the drivers do seem to integrate better. A charge coupled cap version of same is in the works.

As the happy but ever-curious owner of a set of L300s, I’ve been wondering about the 4367 myself. Thanks for starting this thread and getting some opinions!
