Jim Lansing - The Hartsfield

One of the most beautiful speakers ever designed. I haven't heard one of these but would love to compate both versions.

JBL Hartsfield

A beautiful creation and the JBL response to the Klipschorn. I'd love to compare the two.

JBL Hartsfield 1955 - 1964



This is one of the classics. While it didn't have the longevity of the Klipsch bass horn designs it is still a classic. I would love to hear one of these beauties. The bass bin horn path was changed in 1964 and this is the version I am most interested in hearing. They also extended the top end beyond 10khz with this redesign. I haven't found a picture of the 1964 model yet but I am still looking.

The audioheritage website has a great write up of this classic. This is the place to start any research on JBL designs. It is a treasure trove of hi-fi history.
