But I’m not even going to use the grill frames for these. Used but in good shape. Any easy way to tell if the drivers are original?
But don’ let that sway you. I thought it best not to try and clean this because I didn’t want to damage the woofer cone. Great for a lot of classic rock.

All the components work on these speakers. Hopefully I jgl listen to them. Share This Page Tweet. Inverted paper dome is a potential indicator of an alnico magnet structure, but JBL snuck the LE ferrite in there too. Like I said, amazing. How tough is it to replace the foam on the tweets? I like the large Advents quite a bit, though they do sound a little muffled compared with the Boston As. I’m adding an edge molding to the front of the L’s.
JBL 4311? Willi I be disappointed?

I’m sure replacement dust covers are available, and I’ve seen tweeters for sale on ebay pretty regularly.
