View Full Version : JBL LE5-10 or LE5-12 midrange aluminum dome replacement - anyone done one?

I've got an LE5-12 with a pushed in aluminum center dome - looks like it would be difficult to pull out with any decent appearance or hemispherical form. There are replacement aluminum domes painted black on both sides available from Midwest Speaker so at least there's a viable option for repair.

LE5-12 typical appearance, the LE5-10 is exactly the same except with a black painted frame.


Has anyone done this repair and any tips on how to remove the original dome and replace it? Thanks for any discussion.

I have replaced aluminum center dome purchased from Midwest Speaker.

They have an exact fit.

Aluminum is very thin, use a sharp knife and cut a hole in the old dome.
You can now easily remove the outer edge from the membrane.
The glue is not very strong.
