JBL 4412 Studio Monitors.


They were made in 1986, so don't exactly belong here, but are evolved from the fantastic 4310s and 4311s from the seventies. I get excited about all vintage JBLs, but the professional speakers really get me going. These rock! I haven't spent enough time with them yet (I don't know if that's even possible), but can say that they sound as good as any JBL I've had here.

Fun Fact: in 1981 66% of all majour american recording studios used JBLs, and 22 out of Billboard's top 25 albums were recorded and mixed using JBL's monitors.

I have some JBL 4312A that look to be about the same size as some of your speakers. Are your speaker stands homemade? These shown and the other in your pictures that have wheels. Thanks

Hi, I have a pair of 4412A.
My receiver shows them as out of phase. Did some JBL speakers come that way?
Thanks, John
