    Question Aquaplas?

    Is that aquaplas on the backside of that cone?

    Me too... Sometimes I only have something long enough to do one OR the other. It's a tough decision...

    Well, I guess I got what I expected.

    That is indeed disappointing.

    Don't let 'em thwart your efforts Ti. I enjoyed viewing it! It reminded me of myself.

    You had fun too didn't you?

    I apologize for the 'aquaplas' jab- I couldn't help it

    I, for one, have no clue what is in these retail systems, and appreciate Ti Dome dissecting one for us to see.

    My only prior experience with this was replacing a tweeter in a HLS series center for a friend, in which instance I was surprised that so little substance could do the job.

    [Of course, my only reason for being in there was that it had failed.... ]

    Note:

    These L20T's just sold on eBay for $167, a bit more than the closeout price of the Northridge E50's plus tax. Despite these needing cabinet rehab, for essentially the same $$$ which would I rather purchase?

    Me too, Dome you keep doing what you're doing...some of us love it.

    Personally I like the old AND the new.......

    anyway, I'm waiting on the "review" and how you think they sound...I may go out to the place that has them in KC and see if they have them on close out....

    Thanks for the thread...

    I also appreciate seeing the anatomy of JBL speakers. It seems the main border line between entry level consumer and "pro" consumer is whether they use cast frame speakers - at least that's where I've pretty much put the dividing line...

    Its just a series of parody commercials -
    someone showing off his video and editing skills ...
    There are a series of them, the index is here -

    the funniest one is here - Theft Retrieval system ...
    http://www.trunkmonkeyad.com/4qt.htm
    the image of the monkey folding down the backseat and popping out to konk the car thief over the head while he is busy with the ignition switch ...
    even the final image is pure payback ...

    of course, I had my car stolen in late November, so I may see the humour differently ...

    (and yes, I've since got the car back, fully rebuilt by the Honda dealer ...)

    I'm not sure what that means, but come on, TiDome...

    -----

    - The speakers are well protected with a solid, close fitting top and bottom insert. The enclosures themselves are also protected by soft foam "cloth" top and bottom. The grilles fit in their own slot.

    - There's the typical JBL model sticker.

    - ...the grilles have quite a matrix. (my personal favorite)

    - The network is nestled in a nest of wires. (but no detail of what is on that board)

    -----

    What did we learn? You dismantled an off-JBL cabinet, and posted a bunch of pictures of the process. The components don't have common JBL part numbers, it seems, so what value is this?

    It's more like a blog man - posting whatever, whenever, for whomever. Those cabinets, even though JBL heritage, are about as far from what we do here as Bose. Even JBL didn't put their name on the packaging...

    That alone is important to know, isn't it?

    Let's see what Studio series is made of, and the rest of them, too....

    Got it.

    This morning I clicked on the play button but got nothing, now it's working. Pretty clever ads, sorry Ian.
