Product Information

With its single-enclosure speaker system and wireless audio streaming, the JBL Authentic L16 was born to resonate with legacy. Inspired by the legendary JBL Century L100 loudspeaker, the JBL Authentic L16 blends classic acoustic speaker design and advanced wireless technology. It offers a real walnut-veneered wood enclosure, exceptional audio quality and easy wireless connectivity to a wide range of devices via AirPlay, DNLA, Bluetooth and Spotify. Not only that, but with the L16’s additional analog, optical, and phono preamp jack connections, you’ve got yourself an all-in-one masterpiece of compatibility. And it’s as convenient as it’s powerful: Near Field Communication (NFC) technology lets you pair a Bluetooth device simply by tapping it on the speaker.

Meanwhile, a free JBL MusicFlow app lets you easily set up and control the speaker with your iOS or Android mobile device. Using the speaker’s built-in USB ports you can charge compatible mobile devices. Sporting 300 watts RMS of power, custom JBL low-frequency and high-frequency transducers, advanced DSP technology and a frequency response of 40Hz – 35kHz, the JBL Authentic L16 produces full-range sound and a wide stereo image from a single, mid-sized stereo speaker. Harman Clari-Fi technology replaces all the audio details lost in the shuffle of today’s compressed music files, adding detail and energy to any low quality music stream. With its unstoppable acoustics and its all-terrain compatibility, the JBL Authentic L16 is where the future becomes an instant classic.


JBL Authentics L16 Wireless Speaker Features:

300 watts of JBL power and advanced acoustic design produce dynamic, full-range stereo JBL sound from a single, mid-size speaker.

  • High-performance JBL drivers paired with digital amplification, processing and a meticulous acoustic design deliver unmatchable sound from a mid-size speaker. The optimized low- and high-frequency transducers combine with advanced electronics and DSP to present full-range stereo sound with a wide stereo image – all from within a single enclosure. Wherever you play it, expect applause.

All-in-one connectivity with wireless streaming, analog, optical, and phono preamp devices

  • The JBL Authentic L16 offers easy wireless audio playback from the latest and best in mobile devices. It offers AirPlay for iTunes and iOS devices, DNLA for Android devices and Windows PCs, Spotify and Bluetooth connectivity – including instant Bluetooth pairing by way of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. The speaker automatically switches streaming formats as needed, simplifying use with all your devices. Not only that, but the L16 connects with analog, optical, and phono preamp technology, making it an all-in-one champion for your household devices.

Clari-Fi Technology

  • Clari-Fi analyzes digital audio files during playback and “rebuilds” what was lost in compression. Other audio "enhancers" simply add EQ or reverb to existing content with the unsatisfactory result of boosted artifacts and increased distortion.

USB ports let you recharge your compatible devices.

  • The JBL Authentic L16 has two USB ports, one for charging phones, the other for charging tablets.

Great sound and detailed reproduction of music
I just bought this product and it sounds like the artist is in your living room . I'am using primarily Bluetooth and what a difference with Signal Doctor it makes my Itunes collection come to life. Also the speaker looks very classy with the walnut finish.

Great sound and connectivity!
I've owned the JBL L16 for close to a year and a half and I could not be any happier. At the time of purchasing I ended up deciding between the L8 and the L16 (after discarding the competitors), and I'm glad I ended up picking the L16. This thing sounds great! Not only it sounds great, it is powerful enough to fill a large space while keeping the audio quality intact. And it looks fantastic in the living room, it is a beautiful and well designed piece. Not to mention the connectivity via Airplay (which is what I use the most) and Bluetooth. I'm no expert audiophile but I am extremely pleased with this purchase.

Reasons why I bought JBL L16 ... love the design
I was looking for powered speakers that sounds good when listening not directly in front of the speakers, for example, from a different room. I know there is no perfect solution due to sound attenuation is frequency dependent, especially high frequency sound, which is more susceptible to surrounding structure.

This L16 has 200w drivers for high and mid range frequency. They provide a lot of leverage for adjustment to its surrounding. This is perfect for my needs.

It sounds great, I love it!

About time for this level of technology!
Purchased a month ago, this speaker system is by far the best that I've heard from wireless speakers! I owned a pair of JBL L100's, and purchased the L16 thru JBL due to their reference to the L100 legacy. Though not exactly an equivalent, it's sound is quite impressive. I couldn't be happier considering this is a wireless product. It's minimal footprint, lack of wires and ease of setup along with superior sound are what I've hoped for, for a very long time. If any improvements could be made, I'd hope for more variety in Wi-Fi connectivity options, a greater range of sound equalizing options, as well as other improvements within the JBL Sound App. In the future, I hope JBL will be creating separate left and right channel wireless speakers comparable to the L100's with the same minimal footprint (one can only dream!). Overall though, I am very pleased with this investment.
