Designed for genuine entertainment enthusiasts, the Studio L Series delivers accurate performance, tight response, crystal clear dialogue, and true sound that defines JBL®. The L880 has a proprietary Polyplas™ woofer cone and dual front-facing FreeFlow™ bass ports for extended, floor-rattling bass with little distortion. An oversized Kapton® voice coil and a HeatScape™ motor give you exceptional power handling. The pure-titanium dome tweeter mounted in a proprietary Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal™ (EOS) Waveguide disperses the sound and eliminates the “sweet spot” conundrum. Sit wherever you like, any seat is the best in the house. The enclosure is slim and looks great with flat panel televisions. (Yes, it’s video shielded.)

Stiffer cones deliver more uniform pistonic motion for deeper, tighter bass and improved midranges. PolyPlas™ gives maximum impact JBL® audio. You’ll experience serious, feel-it-in-your-bones bass and true sound that does justice to the artist’s original performance.

The HeatScape™ motor structure envelops the voice coil with a large ceramic magnet and steel frame that protects the voice coil by dissipating heat. This increases power handling and gives you extremely low levels of harmonic distortion.

A thin, but rigid, 1” pure titanium-laminate dome tweeter delivers accurate high frequency response, even when the volume is cranked up. A Mylar® dome makes way for open, smooth spacious sound, and a seamless transition between the middle and high frequencies.

Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal™ (EOS) waveguides, originally developed for JBL® Pro LSR studio monitors, disperse clean, high frequency sound more precisely across a wider listening area. There’s no “sweet spot.” Sit wherever you want.

By taking the shortest possible route from the input terminals to the transducers – simplifying and shortening the path – this proprietary crossover design means you hear everything your TV and music source can dish out.

Dual front-facing FreeFlow™ bass ports are acoustically matched to the woofer and move the air from the cabinet into the room. You get extended bass response with the lowest amount of distortion, adding power to your music and excitement to your movie soundtracks.

From 30Hz to 40kHz, nothing is over- or underemphasized. You get a true, full sound range from deep bass tones to ultra-high frequencies.

With 100W of continuous power handling and 400W peak, the JBL® L830 has a robust, muscular delivery. It uses technology derived directly from JBL® Professional studio monitors and gives your home theater audio the unparalleled spaciousness and definition it demands.

Put the JBL® L880 anywhere that makes sense in your home theater set-up. It’s magnetically shielded for placement on the floor or wherever you want it, including right next to your TV or video display.

Studio L880 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best!! They rock. Ran quite a few amps and AVR's to both pair of my L880's to finally get the sound I wanted. Took about 170 Onkyo watts per channel in the family room, and 120 Harman Kardon watts in the bedroom....much to the dismay of my girlfriend. Super clean sound. Crisp highs....subtle lows. To me, they sound best straight 2 channel receiver with a turntable.... and loud. I think from a sound and design standpoint, they will sound most excellent for decades, while increasing in value. Thanks James B. Lansing.....wherever you are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best speakers I've ever bought I'm no audiophile, and I don't have an unlimited budget, but back in 2007 these L880 towers blew me away! I have been listening to them constantly through a good matching stereo amp, and it's been more than a pleasure. I've had to replace the high frequency driver due to a mishap in dust cleaning, but other than that the L880s have been problem free. The bass is so good that sometimes I don't even need to turn on my JBL Studio L8400 sub - it's that good! The mids and highs come out crystal clear as they say, but so does dialog - compared to the dialog from my TV, which sometimes I need subtitles in order to understand what is being said. If your audio source is good, you will feel the difference these towers make in your listening enjoyment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tower Speakers! These are all the speaker you will ever need for most systems. They sound great and crystal clear. Unless you have a big room where you may need the larger 890s, the 880s are perfect for most applications. You can pay more for other brands, but I don't think you'll get more for your dollar.

I would to buy L880 for karate ok, do I need amp or subwoofer to go with it?

Asked by: Wongpeter168
Yes, the L880 is not a stand alone speaker, so you would need an amp in order for it to work.

Can my L880's be used in a 7.1/7.2 system? I noticed at the back of each speaker cabinet 2 separate ways to connect to my receiver.

Asked by: PeterNL
You can use either of the terminals at the back to connect the speaker to an amp. If you are looking into bi-amp or bi-wire connection, that is the only time that you will use both terminals.

Hello! Please tell me how well packaged dynamics in the shipping box? They film (bag)? Do gasket between the speakers and the wall of the box? Are they not damaged during transportation? If possible, send a photo as they are packaged. Thank you!

Asked by: Kuzzzy123
It's not possible to send a photo as they are packaged. However, to give you an idea, there's a pad at the top and bottom and a detachable grille from the front, that effectively protects the speaker from damage. It also comes with the following items: Owner's Manual Warranty Card Foot, Bump-on, 3m Kit, Spike Feet
