Up for sale today folks is a rare pair of vintage JBL C-37 speakers. These are legendary speakers and sat in the same spot in a local home since 1964. Original George Nelson style legs, and are in excellent condition. I have tested these thoroughly and confirmed all drivers work. These retain the correct JBL legs that are hollow in the center, unlike the solid reproductions available. They are massive and create quite a presence. Measuring 36" wide, 24" tall (without the legs) and 16 deep.

With the legs, they stand 29 tall. The grill cloths are original to the speakers and could stand to be replaced.

They have some nicotine yellowing to the cloth, and some light staining. They do have a few minor holes and punctures.

It appears as if someone took glue and glued the JBL badges to the cloth. Tastefully done, just does not use the small metal clamp to hold in place. The physical cabinets are excellent. They have some light indentations in the wood, along with some marks and scratches.

They are over 50 years old but present extremely well. The tops do have some light marks from things being placed on top, along with two water rings on each speaker. One is noticeable and the other is much more faint. I have not attempted to fix this, and figured I would leave this up to the next person. Personally, it doesn't bother me, but these could be lightly sanded and redone properly. Most importantly, let's run through the components inside. It still has the correct JBL N1200 crossover network, but the inside makeup has been altered.

Originally these would have came with the 130A, and 175 driver. However at some point, the woofer and horn driver were replaced with JBL professional series components. The 15 woofers are the 2225H, and the driver for the potato masher lens is a 2425J. It is very disappointing to see the original speakers removed, but I wanted to be transparent so there was no confusion.

These would be good to convert back or enjoy as is. As stated above, the speakers were fully tested, and all drivers are confirmed working. I hooked them up to my Marantz 2285 and they sounded very good.

This is a western suburb of Milwaukee, by about 30 minutes. Please don't hesitate to ask questions. I have more photos if interested.
