I won these off an action sight last night. They are reported to be a JBL 12"- I am not so sure about that as I think they may actually be a LE 14h models. Any thoughts here on an ID? On foam kit?

Thanks ALL!

Those are not JBL's:o:

Look's like a Chinese JBL clone of a LE14:barf:

That kind of reminds me of the old Vieta 13" driver... especially with the totally-white cone (all the way through- not a coating). If that's what it is, it's a pretty substantial driver in itself...

If it's the Vieta, IIRC, they have some sort of woven (fiberglass?) cones...

Regards,
Gordon.

Hi guys. I'm new to these parts, but I've been around the speaker world for sometime.
Those drivers look like they were made by Oaktron. Pretty darn sure that they aren't JBL.

I would agree. It appears they are made to resemble the LE14, but they aren't the real thing. There are several pretty obvious differences-the cone, the magnet structure, and the frame itself.
