I am having intermittent problems with my horn. It plays for a moment and then cuts out. It is an early 60's vintage and has never been worked on. Can these be repaired? If so can someone recommend a place.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Have you made any attempt to isolate the horn from the crossover, or swapped the troublesome horn to the other channel assuming you're in stereo, to diagnose the source of the problem?

Yes I have hooked it up to another source with the same type crossover and it will not produce any sound. It only plays for about one minute after being turned off for a while and then stays off.

Don't know what part of California you're in but I'm sure many here would recommend member Edgewound for nearly any vintage JBL servicing, from anywhere: http://www.uplandloudspeaker.com/
