The new JBL L52 Classic bookshelf loudspeaker is destined to live up to its Classic Series family name. Following on the heels on the larger L100 Classic and L82 Classic models, the compact L52 Classic boasts a size that allows it to work in a variety of applications from stand-mount, to bookshelf, to tabletop, to wall-mount. The appearance of the L52 Classic echoes that of its larger siblings with a walnut wood veneer enclosure and a Quadrex foam grille available in a choice of black, blue, or orange.

Designed as a scaled-down version of the L82 Classic, the L52 Classic is a two-way design utilizing a 0.75-inch titanium dome tweeter mated to an acoustic lens waveguide and a 5.25-inch white cone, cast-frame woofer. A premium crossover network design ensures optimum system performance while a front-panel HF level attenuator allows the sound to be tailored to its environment. Enclosure tuning is bass-reflex via a front-firing tuned port and a set of binding post speaker terminals provide secure connection to speaker cables. The enclosure is finished in walnut wood veneer and includes a pair of threaded inserts on the rear panel for use with third-party wall mount brackets.
The JBL L52 Classic is packed and sold in mirror-imaged pairs and will be available for the holidays beginning in Q4 of 2021 with a retail price of $1000/pair.
