They fall short of the stature of the ‘s though. I’ve also worked with JBL A’s extensively. They use a different cabinet design and different drivers. Find great deals for JBL Studio Monitor A Pair.

But are they sonically much different than each other? Which one is arguably the better model? For example, which model is more musical? Which model is more clinical?

Which one has jbbl stereo image? Or is the difference only skin deep? I once imagined the A is better for nearfield, since the drivers seem to be packed closer to each other than those of But then again, the difference is not that much. Sadly I haven’t got the chance to audition them to compare between the two.
KreshnaAug 17, If blind folded I doubt majority of the people could tell the difference.

They use the same or similar driver complement. If it were me, I take the real wood veneer and level controls. Bdbras84Chris Brown and Kreshna like this. Never missed the adjustments, they always just sound right.
Never missed the veneer either. In comparing the tweeters I find the Ti 44412 better all around fit to my ears. Something about the creases in the Ti drives me away. That and the rotted foam under the domes that makes them shrill. Taking apart an Ti can be done, but they were not designed to be easy to disassemble. Hbl one is well past it’s “replace the foam” date!
In a blind test, I think most people could hear the difference between a properly damped Ti dome and one with rotten foam causing there to be no damping. The Ti on the other hand has a “field replaceable diaphragm” design that makes replacing the foam a walk in the park comparatively.

jbll Sadly the replacement diaphragms are NLA at this point, but as long as they are not damaged, they should continue to sound great for years. My new diaphragms came with new foam plugs as well. Changing the foam every years or so should keep them correctly damped, so no shrillness. Mine have been charge-coupled as well, which makes for a more revealing, smoother sound.

Thanks for the replies, folks. So I guess I’d look for A instead, for the easiness of replacing the foam. As for veneer, I can always re-veneer it anyway.

I’m going to re-veneer my JBL Ti’s anyway, so I could use the same veneer for the single A that will be used as center for the Ti mains. KreshnaAug 18, Or you could swap the Ti into theand clean up the veneer.
They are very similar in that respect, although the crossover is different. I skinned a pair of ‘s with fancy walnut, they came out great. ObankenobiAug 18, KasonbiggselitopusGoldjazz and 2 others like jbo. If the speaker is set horizontal, there might be a slight bit of image shift but it will lessen with distance. Only way to know is to try it out.
You can’t lose money with vintage JBL’s in good shape though. Hbl Hart and Kreshna like this. Anyone in the bay area have a pair of As? I can bring my s over and we can compare.
KreshnaAug 21, I think you’re micro-managing a simple issue. If you have the speakers, try them. If your listening situation is so inflexible and compromised from the start, then making the best of your situation is the best you’ll be able to do.
It would seem a smaller two-way would be more appropriate as your center channel 4421, but I seldom listen to three large inch 3-way boxes just two-feet from their baffles. Given the complexities of room acoustics, your listening position and the interplay between all that and your ears, all potential theory, especially when mixing even speakers from the same manufacturer and same era or even series can be difficult to predict ahead of time, and sometimes even harder to understand under use conditions.
In this case, I agree with BMWCCA, get out your reference music, a solid center channel amplifier and set up the A into your desired position and listen, take notes, tweak, listen, take notes, change A orientation even place woofer uplisten, take notes, rinse and repeat.
Without other means like room measurement, RTA, spectrum analyzers, room correction software, you will have to use more empirical methods to evaluate the gear you have and the potential for improvements in what 442 listening or looking for. I jb, disagree with all that think the A is a better speaker. The A is actually a later cheaper model of thehence all of the plastic, felt and cheaper crossovers.
It also was not used as much or respected as much for studio use as the The was the studio choice for most music engineered in the 80s and 90s.
MastrbuilderMay 21, James Hart and Chris Brown like this. Jbk must be referring to the veneer? Never missed it, in fact my pair has been “ruggedized” with truck-bed coating. As others have said, you could always add veneer of your choice if you were so inclined. Well, I can’t, part of the upgraded paint job was rounding the corners a bit to cut down on refraction, since I can’t soffit mount them. As for the cheaper crossover, the only real jnl is the L-pads being eliminated.
Again, never missed those. If you like playing with them, by all means do 442. Me I like things that just work straight out the gate. Jl models sound much nicer with a charge coupled crossover. You must log in or sign up to reply here.
