If you have a pair of Duntech Sovereigns, Sonus Faber Amati Anniversario or Elipsa Red or Stradivari. I have had interest from international buyers. Anyone considering the investment in these speakers know what they are so I won’t go on too much of a rant. In my opinion these are the pinnacle of the 43xx Blue Baffle monitors. Overall system sensitivity of 95db/w and capable of SPL’s exceeding 126db. Why would you require such high SPL’s you may ask? Whilst you are not likely to crank the speakers to a level approaching 126db it’s the sheer effortlessness of reaching high SPL’s that is so addictive with large JBL monitors. They will play loud without a hint of strain. The dynamics here is just off chops. I have never heard another speaker come close to the mid-bass wallop these have. I assume if you are considering these you are familiar with the drivers so I won’t go into there sound signature of each but I have to say these are the most dynamic vintage JBL monitor. You may ask where the 4345’s fit into the mix? They are a similar sized monitor in size and sensitivity but with a larger 18 inch woofer as opposed to 2x 15’s. Well you can keep your 18inch woofer and I’ll raise you a 12inch mid bass, but most importantly the 4350’s have a 4 inch compression driver and 2inch horn. The diaphragms are more than twice the size of the 4345 and the driver weighs nearly 20kg alone. It makes the 2420/2425 look like a toy. The 2440/2441 is really as good as it gets with vintage JBL horns. It’s not just the sheer size of the 2440/2441, it’s just a superior driver. All the cones and diaphragms are original JBL OEM and being the “A” variation the drivers are all Alnico. The speakers come with the JBL 5234 Active Crossover with the 250hz crossover cards installed. This is just a freebie thrown in with the speakers but I would seriously look at a better crossover for these. I used a DEQX but something like a Bryston 10B or First Watt B4 would be good too. The old JBL crossovers are a bit long in the tooth these days, even if you recap them. I bought these of the original owner so these have not been passed around or abused. I have the foilcal for the grilles but the plastic flim has started to peel off so I didn’t stick them on. You could heat them up with a heat gun or maybe get on to them with an iron. Cabinets are in pretty good nick, the speakers are now approaching 48 years old so that has to be taken into consideration. If you look close there a few marks here and there but they are a solid 8/10. Unless you had a pair stored in a vacuum I doubt there are many 4350’s in better nick. Sequential serial numbers 12007A 12008A. These will never depreciate and along with the Paragon are the most valuable and sort after JBL speaker. I doubt this would interest any buyers but I have a pair of charge couple 3155 crossovers I could include if you wanted to bring these to 4355 spec. Jantzen caps, Jantzen Wax Inductors and Superes resistors. The HF portion of the speakers have been re-wired with Duelund 16AWG and the binding posts are CMC’s. For a little extra I can provide a JBL MPA600 power amp to drive the LF section. 400 watts in 8 and 600 into 4, plenty enough to drive the 4×15’s.
