I see the 1974 JBL catalog shows the offered foam grille colors for the L200 as being "Smoke, Raven, Aegean, and Burgundy". Can anyone enlighten me as to what the first three are? :blink:

Colorful names but rather vague to someone tasked with reproducing them! :banghead:

Raven was black and Smoke was a dark gray, like slate gray. What they called Burgundy was more like a Wine Red and Aegean was a dark blue, much darker than the blue used on the L100's but not Navy Blue. It had a hint of gray in it. I have the html color code numbers for the Aegean and Burgundy and they are very close. I owned both Aegean and Burgundy grills years ago and remember them well. Will find my info and forward it soon.
