JBL has no intentions of ever running any LE10A kits again. They are history.

JBL will run a new batch of LE14A kits when backorders reach critical mass.

Do you think they are really serious? Haven't they said that about the 150-4C too, only to do yet another run a few years later?

Since were talking about the LE10A. What is the difference between it and a LE10H-1:hmm:

Since were talking about the LE10A. What is the difference between it and a LE10H-1:hmm:The LE10H/LE10H-1/LE111H has heavier moving mass, higher Bl factor, greater power handling capacity, stiffer suspension, slightly higher efficiency, slightly higher free air resonance, lower compliance, lower distortion due to the SFG ferrite motor, basically just a nice evolution of the design. The old LE111A was similar to the 124A/2203A in that it had a motor that was rediculously powerful.

Giskard, what do the kits consist of, and do you have any idea of their cost?

Cone/coil/spider/surround assembly, black trim ring, clear plastic spacer, dust dome, recone glue.

http://www.speakerrepair.com/ocsrepairprice.html looks like $186 each (parts and labor).

Wow! Those prices are steep. But probably in line with the scarcity of the parts...

Giskard,

How do we add to the LE14A backlog? I have 2 needing kits.

I think I'd be interested in a couple of LE14A kits too, if for no other reason than as insurance. I know mine won't last forever, but then again, neither will I.

How many requests do they need to produce? And, how can we insure that we will be able to get a piece of the action?

Are y'all weighing the pros and cons of reconing to LE14H-1 instead?

Giskard,

How do we add to the LE14A backlog? I have 2 needing kits.You can take the drivers into a Service Center and they will order the kits. Or you can send the drivers to JBL for reconing.

Giskard, for the sake of clarity, with this particular recone kit now made extinct,,,
- what's that leave for available 10" ( le10xx type ) recone kits ? ( I am a little lost here ) :blink:

C8RLE111H - in stock

LE10H-1
C8RLE10H-1 - in stock

LE111A

LE14A and LE14H

Note that physical inventory was just run and a new computer system was installed. It appears Pro found a few LE14A kits! What Pro is doing with LE14A kits is beyond me but there they be.

Great, Thanks for that ! ,,, it's most appreciated . :)

( I now realize the source for a particular confusion - I didn't realize that the older le10a had a distinct recone kit. I suppose I had assumed it was the same as that other "white-faced" type ) :blink:

And,,, they are still making 3 ( 10" ) types available - that's awfully supportive of them .

Again, Thanks :cheers:

p.s. Do you have an opinion on the merits or drawbacks that would occur when marrying the lowest Qts kit ( C8RLE111A ) into a ferrite-magnet motor assembly ?

Do you have an opinion on the merits or drawbacks that would occur when marrying the lowest Qts kit ( C8RLE111A ) into a ferrite-magnet motor assembly ?If I remember correctly the LE111A had ~ 1 kHz less top end response and exhibited a low frequency shelf response. The top end response wasn't necessarily a bad thing and the low end shelf response could allow for system placement closer to boundaries.

I personally prefer the LE10H/LE10H-1/LE111H. One would have to determine which they preferred.
