JBL L42ms

The JBL L42ms is an Integrated Music System that was designed to fit today’s entertainment lifestyle by showcasing the iconic sound of a pair of JBL loudspeakers in a single cabinet system. Behind the iconic JBL Quadrex grille are a pair of dual 4-inch (100mm) woofers and dual 0.75-inch (20mm) Aluminum dome tweeters with waveguides positioned to the left and right to create a wide and even sound-field. On the outside, the L42ms comes with a stylish curved grille, tapered side edges, and is available in the classic JBL real wood veneer finishes of Black Walnut or Natural Walnut.

Audio connections include two sets of analog stereo inputs (one pair RCA style and one 3.5mm input) along with one HDMI-ARC for connection to a TV with similar connection for audio signal and control. Additionally, the L42ms can play streamed content via a wired or wireless network connection via Spotify Connect, Apple Airplay2, and Google Chromecast or connect to a device directly via Bluetooth.

All audio signals are routed through an advanced DSP engine where the content is carefully contoured and output to the speakers via a four-channel amplifier delivering 75W RMS to each woofer and 25W RMS to each tweeter. The total system’s 200W RMS amplifier power can be controlled via a touch panel located on the cabinet top panel, included Bluetooth remote, or from one of many music or automation apps.

Designed and Engineered at the Harman Center of Acoustics Excellence in Northridge, California, the L42ms leverages JBL’s past 75+ years of loudspeaker and electronic designs to deliver truly outstanding sound and convenience while outperforming most traditional component hi-fi systems in the process. With its incredible combination of style, size, and performance, there is simply nothing like the L42ms Music System.
