Well after 18mths. of research & putting my jbl's back togother from being rescued out of a dumpster,I find out there are'nt any recone kits available for my drivers.Apparently these were the home version of the 4425 studio monitor.My question is how should i go about "replacing" my drivers?2214h maybe...Or should i recone with what is available?Any suggestions would be much appreciated,these are with out a doubt the best sounding speaker i have heard.thanks

According to their web page, Orange County Speakers will recone them for 152 each. Give them a call.

Oooo, ouch! Both 120T3 driver and C8R120T3 kit are obsolete and NLA :banghead:


Give me a week to check out the situation...

Oops, I thought that they were 2214s

Why couldn't you use the 2214 or recone with 2214 kits?? Are the drivers that different?? It works in the 4425. Have to adjust the level on the horn a bit?? They use the same frames right??

I was also thinking 2214 as a replace.But on the other hand...:confused: :bomb: Thanks,you guys are great!

Ok... here's the scoop... the 128H-1 would be a better replacement for the 120T3 transducer. You can also use the 2214H but it has the worst top end response of the three and it is the most efficient... In any case you should try the driver swap before worrying about the networks.

Ooooh good to know! I have a pair of 128h-1s and 2342/2418's they go high enough??

Anybody got the T/S parameters and/or a FR graph for the 120T3? Or willing to measure one? Given those, it might be possible to "engineer" a recone kit. I've been experimenting with modifying/mix-and-matching aftermarket components, to as closely as possible match original JBL drivers... and it would seem, that with some creative "parts-chasing", it might be possible to recone that 'T3 back to proper working condition...

Gotta say I like Gordans options,would really like to have the t3's back in.As for the dumpster ...well #1 I didnt know what these were at all,when I say basket case-I mean trashed.But you know when you start building these old speakers & see them coming to life:cool: Horn drivers came from Haron Kardon & the baby cheeks from Orange county sp.The cabinets were done in a body shop(Now piano black laquer)I will post pics.#2- JBL'S do not Die!I am not near as educated about driver reuilding or crossovers....So listening to you guys is really a big thrill for me,much thanks to everyone who is tossing around ideas for me.Pat
