Super Sound!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
After reading the review above, I decided to try these JBL Pro III speakers which we had inherited but were not being used.

I recoiled when I cleaned and dusted them off and connected to my ICOM 7600. What a difference from the old blacked faced Motorola HSN 4000A speakers I was previously using. The Motorola's were good considering their age, size etc, but no comparison to the JBL Pro III speakers.

I am using one JBL with the IC 7600 and the other with a Kenwood R-1000 receiver. Both sound outstanding, far better then their internal speakers and are very easy to listen to!

Exc Speaker for Hamming!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I now owned two sets of these covering a span of 15 years. I haven't found a better bookshelf speaker anywhere for general narrowband (200-4000 Hz)use in ham radio applications. The tonal qualities of these are something to behold.

These were quality built, professional speakers with serious transducers - both the mid/low frequency element and the tweeter could handle a fair amount of power. Presently, the line output of my HF rig is driving an outboard Bogen 20 watt PA amplifier, which in turn drives this JBL Pro III. This outboard, "clean" audio combination really makes the difference when recovering critical audio at all listening levels.

If you can find a nice used pair, pick them up. You will be presently surprised. From this review, you could surmise that they might also sound great on a "HiFi" stereo system. You're right... they do. 73.
