This was a one year old thread!

Anyway, since this thread is already revived, I'll post pictures of fake JBL enclosures floating around in the market. Sam would be able to comment on them.

Please note that only the ENCLOSURE is fake and not the sub.








I've increased the brightness of one of the pictures so that you can clearly see the JBL logo.



The enclosure was huge, heavy and awful.

u know raghu, these are pretty common in Delhi. basically margin comes from selling fake enclosures. cost X 4 = MRP. customer thinks it as original set and doesnt know its screwing the sound.

I asked Sachin from Carman....yaar yeh JBL ka to nahin lag raha, he said nahin yeh JBL hi hai. Then he pointed out at sub, i said I'm talking about enclosure.

Replied "bhaiya yeh hamne customize kiya hai according to JBL sub". I asked kitne cubic ft hai, sealed ya ported? he shouted....ummm.....abe raju yeh kitna hai? raju replied " pata nahin yeh to sardar wala hai. sare ek jaise hi hote hain, sahi bajega". that was the end. i never went to him again.

@ Raghu, who sold this enclosure to you ?? Did they claim it was Official JBL ?? It's defnitely not, but this one is way out of calculation, the enclosure looks anywhere above 2.25 CuFt. And yes Even I have seent those boxes but that was some time ago, have not seen these selling in numbers in last 6 months.

I DID NOT BUY THIS!!!!

I just found this lying at a shop and took the pictures to share it here. The dealer said "He just got it from one of his suppliers and had no idea about it."

Like Panky said, he was very excited to sell it, because in his opinion the bigger, the better (He also said it would suit Innovas and Scorpios, I just couldn't stop laughing )

About the volume, yes, it was very very huge, way above 2.25 CuFt.

lol. The logo is a little inclined, but decent job with that for a fake, I agree.
The guy quoted 1,800/- for it. Guess it is worth it, as long as you can chop it down and use it as firewood. Weighed an awful lot!

Somehow as this thread is progressing, I'm feeling that some people may be mistaken. I need to tell everyone:

1. I did not buy this enclosure or consider buying it. I have posted the pictures for informing that the enclosure is fake and not a sensible buy.

2. Please read my posts carefully, the opinions are of the shop owner including "Bigger the better" (And all of that is wrong).

@ Abibh

Needless to say, that is not a JBL approved enclosure by a long shot.
Raghu, could you please let me know at what dealers did you see this particular box with the JBL logo on it?

And yes, that box is about twice as big as it should be.

What can we do when we spot fake JBL products?

Actually I have seen fake JBL wiring kit with a dealer near my college.He told me its imported and it costed 3000.

I know its fake because i have seen the picture somewhere in this forum(cant find it now),But what will others do.

And the dealer has many JBL products for which he told me the company will directly give warranty,is this true.

And Sam could you guide us how to identify those fake products
