It looks a lot like a Hartsfield lens, but has 12 metal vanes instead of 11. Is it made by JBL or someone else? If not a JBL item, would there be any point in picking them up?

McCauley used to make them. Mid 1980's
The one in the picture is upside down.

The cabinet is the Community model PBL with the optional "acoustic lens" attached in front of the molded horn. The cabinets used threaded or 1" drivers depending on the order but could be custom made with 2". Used to be popular back in the late 70's - early 80's with SR companies due to size and durability.

Thanks subwoof! The cabinet is molded in a round shape in the back, if that also helps. Not something I need right now (or ever...) but it is interesting to know who made the copy of the JBL lens.
