    They are bright, brash, and forward. I don't care for any of them - but they certainly have their fans, so YMMV.

    Practically speaking, the 4311 and L-100 are the same.

    www.lansingheritage.org is a great resource for all things JBL (and most things Altec).

    EDIT: sorry for the huge-mongous JPG :-)

    EDIT^2: Interestingly, the L-100 was designed to mimic the performance of the then-reference standard Altec 604 and/or 605 Duplex speakers for studio monitor use. I loves me some Duplexes - my "real" hifi speakers are 604E Duplexes in 9 ft^3 cabinets - but I can barely tolerate L-100s. Go figure :-)

    (oh, and in fairness, in the 1970s JBL completely eclipsed Altec a the leader in the studio monitor buiness - but that's another story!)
