Hi there! I'm a lucky owner of a pair of....HP580!! Same identical front transducers of the HP520, but inner subwoofers are the 510G (10 inches) instead of 408G. More power (250W rms) handling, more tall and, of course...more heavy! Question is...where can I find parts of them (or simply genuine any Jbl parts in general) on the web, new, used or whatever? This series i.e. has a crystal glass on the top. What can I do if in a disgrace event it can be broken? Where find the original part (with the little JBL logo on the bottom)? Or the crossover network? Any advice? And...seems to be impossible to find the pdf's product specification, only for hp420/520 available on the web. And last, but not least, what are these "unknown" hp530 and 590? As an European (italian) Jbl fan I never seen these two models on the market! I always believed that the hp 580 was the biggest model of the HP Series! Thanks! :help:

I realize this is of limited help, but the library here has some info on the 530 and 590, though it is in German:

In general, you will find no parts available for these speakers from Harman - they did not share drivers with the Pro division, so service support ended years ago. Driver refoams can be purchased on Ebay. You will probably end up haunting the used market for donor or parts speakers to scavenge parts from. Good luck!
