This has been a very, very informative thread on a very romantic subject. I bought a pair of JBL L100t3's, L20t3's, and a B-380 sub back in 1987. I use these today in a 5.1 system. Although these speakers are now over 30 years old, they still satisfy. I had to replace the foam surrounds for L100t3's and the B-380 about 2 years ago; and, now these speakers will out last me. Frankly, in the years that I've owned these speakers the only other consideration for audio improvement has come from an opportunity to listen to the JBL L300's. I like their seemingly effortless ability to deliver rock genera's at outdoor concert levels for closest thing I've heard so far to life-like. Thing is, I still can't afford any in excellent condition that have come available.
