It's 14-inch LE14A, actually. The fretwork grille is the more collectable version. If they're the original Lansaloy surrounds, they'll need to be replaced in any case.

Hear Hear! my absolute favorite bookshelf.

The LE14 is a ground pounder in that box...just look at the size of that port!
It crosses over at 2K and the LE20 sweetens everything up. Very smooth with a lot of punch....... IT LIKES WATTS! :D

I've got 9 pairs of L100/43xx sitting around here and do you know what are in favor?

GUILTY! Actually, they're Minuet's

I guess when it comes to JBL's I'm still "stuck in the 60's".

The last pair of new JBL's I bought was in 1978, L300's (which I still have)

Old cars, old wine and young women....YEAH BABY!!!!!:D
