Description

In the early 80's, JBL made a spectacular speaker called the 4344, intended for use in professional music studios. It was generally not available for home use and was sold in limited numbers. Therefore there is much less information about them available than for the consumer models, and they don't show-up on the used audio websites very often.
Where they really caught-on was in Japan, a JBL 'Mecca' where the 4344 is near or at the top of the most favoured JBL models. Kenrick Audio of Japan is World famous for their rebuilt 4344s, and they ship all over the world. (link to their website can be found above)

The 4344 is a four way design with a 15 inch woofer, a 10 inch midrange, a horn tweeter and super tweeter, with crossover points at 320Hz, 1.3kHz, 10kHz. Full specs are listed below.
The 4344s, rated at 8 ohms and 93dB efficiency are an easy drive for small tube amps, but can handle solid state power and very loud volume levels. Given their efficiency, they sound very relaxed with very good bass even at low volume levels.

This is a newly rebuilt/restored pair of 4344s from Kenrick Sound. They were imported last summer, but were not used regularly and broken-in until early this year. They are like new and in excellent condition, and are superior to any other 4344s you may see for sale out there right now. It cost over $17,000.00 Cdn to bring these speakers into Canada!

You can have this almost new pair for $12500.00, (or best reasonable offer) much less than it would cost you to have a pair imported from Japan

A pair of solid walnut stands are available and can be purchased separately.
