Okay, this is maybe getting a bit out of hand!
While hosting my buddy Louis JBL 212 set, I stumbled across a pair of L56. Having heard they are usually not regarded as good – actually the contrary, I found that I should give them a go.
They were cheap, and not in the best shape, but your own experiences are important.
How do they sound? – well, not convincing. The 10″ driver is too big for a 2-way, in my opinion. There is simply a way to big of a gap between the fast and very bass-heavy ported 10″ and the tweeter, which results in a speaker that sounds big but without any detailing.
But hey, someone might be happy down the line. For now I’ll tip-toe around the apartment, hoping they don’t realise they have me outnumbered.
