I love this website as I already have been operating a large all horn loaded system for years complete with altecs voice of the theatre cabinets. This is the bumper cars at coney island and I might add that as much as I already knew of altec and JBL I have learned even more from this site. Many thanks. Its also nice to just come and look at the things that were great from yesterday. In my opinion nothing they make today sounds better than this stuff. Would be nice for someone to remanufacture altec high efficiency speakers.But I can keep my altecs going from finding great plains audio at this amazing website. THANK YOU

Best site out there or anywhere about Altecs for sure. I have a pair of 416-8C's and a pair of 511B Horns, and I dont have a clue about what enclosure or crossover network to use for home use. Right now they reside in 38" x 16" x 18" boxes with a round port 4" dia. with minimal interior bracing. The pathetic 2-way crossovers are cheap as I am on a nonexistent budget. However I can from time to time scratch up something for aural improvements, any secrets or magic formulas would truly be appreciated. Thanks Mr. Lansing where ever you are.

Although the Altec part of Lansing has been killed it is very important to preserve the history and develop a trust or foundation. Internet media such as this fine web site contribution & possibly a a dedicated Lansing Museum for our future generations is certainly my hope.

It's nice to know that I am not totally insane. There are people out there that have the same passion and enthusiasm for the man and the company that has truly changed our lives forever. I have been, and am an owner, of two of the greatest loudspeakers in the world. My first pair of speakers were L112's. God I miss 'em. My computer speakers which I am listening to right now are 4312a's. Pretty serious speakers for a computer don't you think? What would have happened to the audio industry without the likes of, Jim Lansing, Saul Marantz, David Hafler, Sidney Harman, Bernie Kardon, Avery Fisher, Frank McIntosh and all whom have made American Audio, The Greatest on Earth. This site represents a major contribution to that legacy, and to the legacy of The James B. Lansing Sound Company. My sincere gratatude to all who have made this site possible.

I want to congradulate you in high regards on this super website. I've been a big audio enthusiast in classic JBL loudspeakers since I've heard them in the mid 70's. As a matter of fact, I've owned a pair of L-65 Jubals, L 40's and L 19's. They were incredible systems. I've thought that I would not be able to see such information exist on the past history of the company. I was able to get in contact with Hal Cox in the San Francisco Bay area. He does in fact carry a huge selection of the classic JBL loudspeaker systems. Perhaps you can get in touch with him. He could be a valuable asset to your website. Again good job in substaining the Lansing legacy!

Thanx

Phil

In 1975, I bought a pair of JBL 4332 bi-amped Studio Monitors(NEW), I use a HK Citation 16 and a HK Citation 12. The pre-amp is a HK Citation 11. In 1989 the HK 16 developed a "pop", I suspect a discharging capacitor, and I haven't used any of the equipt since. One speaker has a tweeter that is not functional. I'd like to hear from anyone with anything to say or talk about regarding what I considered to be, for many years, a beautiful system.

My father was in the theater business and used Altec speakers almost exclusively. In the late 50's, when many of his movie houses closed, he saved many of the speakers. I have four of the speakers that I continue to use as part of my stero system. I also inherited a long Bolero 890C that I am looking for a mate. I would appreciate any direction you could provide as to where I might find such a unit. Thanks

Really enjoyed this site. Sold afew Altec speakers in the early 70's and bought A7-500 stuff at salesmans prices through the store I worked at, which was Cramer Hi-Fi Streo, closed about 1975, in Boston, Ma. Heartbreaking to learn of company demise. Bought new 511-b's about 7 years ago to go with some other drivers I had at home and was looking forward to getting some new woofers for the A7 cabinets that were given to me last year. Have 1968 catalog and 1990 catalog. Also have two of those funky-curly WE horns from an old theater.

Very nice work... I worked for many years at Canada's: "Largest and Loveliest Ballroom" as their sound engineer .. The above is a quote from Guy Lombardo who was born in this city, plus quite a few other leaders, such as: Woody Herman, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, etc., also all the rest of the Big Bands that I worked with there.

I would like to know where to find John Eargle's information regarding James Lansing, I have read it before, but, cannot remember the URL's involved.

Can anyone help me regarding this matter?

If you like Ballroom Orchestras, Sweet and Swing, go to our website mentioned above.

Keep up the great work!!!

I am in the initial stage of a project to restore a pair of L65 Jubals. This site has been a valuable asset towards a successful completion of the project. I would appreicate any additional information that would help with the project. Outside of the obvious age (foam rot) and wear (torn grill cloth) problems, I might need to replace some crossover components (one midrange is silent but the driver is OK).

As I am only 22 years old, I haven't had the chance to encounter all these marvellous speakers. This site gives my an insight what real audio is, and also who the people are behind it. I am a real fanatic about horns (I've built a sort of Altec A7 cabinet) and other classic speakers (like for example the Karlson coupler). I really really love the sound of them. I do not understand the high-end market at all. The most of their stuff is unpayeble, and it sounds 100 times worse then my old Karlsons and a 1000 times worse then the A7's !

This is the first website since "Thomas Dunker's horn loaded home page" to really inform audio folks of the past history. I have been doing this for the last 5 to 10 years. But in a couple of months, this site has surpassed all the information I have gathered and answered questions that I could not unravel myself. Please keep up the great work, some of us audio folks would rather listen to our classic audio equipment with all the quirks/problems associated with equipment 20 to even 50 years old, than listen to some of the new "junk" mass produced today. It's unfortunate that mass market appeal has taken the quality out to be replaced with quantity which is to say, they are only interested in profits only. There are today, companies that put out fine audio equipment, but suffice to say they are out of my and others affordability.

Great site and tribute to J. B. Lansing and his team who provided us with excellent speakers and systems over the past half century. I have always enjoyed the sound from their speakers including my own 4312B, 4312s, Aquarius 4 (s109), and Control 5s. Nobody makes them better.

I have always loved JBL speakers and this site is just what the doctor ordered. I just recently acquired some 4311s after all of these years. Would love to have some L300s or 4333s some day.

Thanks for all of the great information.

I wrote the majority of the literature from 1971 through 1977 and still have my custom L100's and a pair of S109's. I also still have the Kenwood receiver I obtained from Rod Bell and my Dual 1229 turntable. The Dual hit the floor in the earthquake. I purchased another one out of the bargin bin in the paper and had the two put together. I have fond memories of quality products and quality people.

What a great site. I sold JBL speakers from 1966 - 1975 and had many different JBL systems. I think the best would be my pair of L200s with 2405s added. This system was designed by Greg Timbers. We worked together at the same electronic store in Van Nuys California. Steve

I have always loved the Altec A7"s. As a matter of fact my junior high shop teacher helped me build a set for my band. We were told we had the best sound system anywhere. I'm 44 now, and my main speakers for my home theater are, you guessed it, A pair of A7's. The wealth of info on your site is amazing. I spent hours trying to find info that YOU have in one web-site.Thanks for all the info you"ve put up, and keep up the GREAT JOB!!!!!!!

Been a JBL-er for over 20 years. Here's a list of what I've owned in the past and currently:

For professional applications:

Cabaret series: 4612B (two sets), 4628B, 4691B*

SR series: 4718*, 4722*, 4732*, 4738* (awesome cabinets!)

Performance Series: G718, G733 (2 sets of each, upgraded to SR series)

JBL 4663BKA*

For Home and studio use: JBL L100T*, JBL L150A JBL 4343 Studio Monitors*

Misc. JBL 5234 active crossover (3)* JBL 2397 diffraction horn JBL 2370A horns w/2426 drivers Lots of bullets and slots!

*(currently own)

My next purchase may be a vintage Metregon..... we'll see!

I was starting a mobile DJ business in 1979 when I strolled into Antech Labs in St. Louis. I was looking for a mixing board and the Pro salesperson, Bob Lewis, introduced himself. He sold me an amp and a mixing board. "What are you using for speakers?" he asked. I told him I got a kit from a speaker store down the street. I described to him that they were loaded with four 10" woofers, four 5" mids and two piezo tweeters. They "looked" awesome!! After a long pause he rolled his eyes and said "when you blow those up, let me set you up with some JBL's."

I had my first set within 6 months and have never looked back!

Suppose I should write in and let you know how much I enjoy the site. I probably visit daily the interact section and I've learned so much there. All my questions have been answered. Best of all, the maturity of the posters here is refreshing- good healthy debate, yes; flamers and bomb hurlers, no. Best of luck, and someday my experience will be such that I can be one that gives the guidance and advice

Thanks for an extremely interesting site. I have a couple of homemade C34 rear loading exponential horn enclosures built from the factory full size plans (four 24" x 36" sheets) which detailed every piece of wood used in their construction. Each is fitted with a D130, a 175DLH, and an 075 driver powered by bi-amped Crown DC300A's. This is still the best sounding system I've heard to date! I also have a couple of old catalogs including publication SC515 (a 1963 catalog) showing the C34 System. Let me know if you would like copies of the plans and catalogs (with some detail as to how to make the copies) and I'll send them to you.

As J.B. Lansing's third kid, I would like to thank you for all the work you have done to keep dad's memory alive. FYI on your page titled 6900 McKinley Ave., in the photo titled Lansing Manufacturing Staff, the man behind dad or the fourth one from the left in the back row is his brother, Bill Martin.

I've been visiting this site for about 6 months now and commend all of you for it. I have some '50's and 60's literature I'd be happy to share, as well as some photographs for two D-130A's. One has been in use for most of its life and has a light grey cone. The other spent most of its 50 year life in a cabinet in an upstairs garage and the cone is still almost black. I love their deep, rich sound, especially in C43 cabinets. I have learned a tremendous amount by studying this wonderful sight. Thank you so much

Hey Guys, I`ve owned some JBL (4310,4311,4341) and Altec-Lansing (Valencia, Santana) since 1973, and I`m very glad that someone tries to put the heritage of Jim Lansing into real light. I`m sad about the disappearance of Altec though. Please go ahead! H. Westphal
