    L-19 question

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-JBL-L19-...QQcmdZViewItem

    I'm looking for garage speakers and these L-19's would work great and are close to home. However, the woofers don't look right to me. I was hoping someone could confirm or deny this.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    They're not JBL woofers. I wouldn't bid.

    I thought they were wrong, thanks for the confirmation Don!

    Take care,

    Mark

    If they don't sell, tell him why and get them cheap, maybe $20, and he can keep the woofs.

    Last pair of 116Hs I bought on eBay for $7. Rcobb refoam kit is $23. You end up with a "right" pair of L19Bs for less than what he's asking.

    L19's mighty nice, as you know.

    My pair came from Santa Rosa with just one woofer (which needed refoam) for $15. Another Johnaec find, as I recall....

    Mark, I have an extra pair of L110's that would work great, but they're not very close to you. Probably take up too much space any way.

    If you allow Mark: while we're at it, I have another L19 question. One can see L19/4301 with wrong woofers surprisingly often over here too.

    Assumed the 116A/H in L19/4301 were substituted with 116H-1's – would that work as well or are there significant, read: audible parameter differences that could affect their magic?

    The parameters are different, certainly, probably enough to warrant retuning.

    H-3 is the recommended replacement, and while we don't know the T/S parameters on that, I did measure one and quickly concluded they were not a reversion to typical 116A/H.

    I have all the stuff to test and measure A,H, and H-1. Maybe this weekend.

    035TiA might be an upgrade worthy of consideration, as well....

    Only ONE extra pair Larry??? Yeah, a bit too big and too nice a speaker to stick in my garage! Just looking for a smallish bookshelf, beater cabinets OK, with good and correct drivers. I will use the old Sansui 9090DB to drive them, when I get it fixed that is.

    Hey Zilchster,

    I will watch the auction close and try to get them for a song. Chico is less than an hours drive from me and I go there often. I may have to stop by The Sierra Nevada Brewery resturant and get a bite to eat. I may even have a beverage, or two, or three, or.........

    I figured they would be a little bit too big for what you wanted them for. I do have a couple of pairs that have cabinets that are in so so condition. Not any where close to pristine like the ones I bought from you.

    Glad I checked here first. I was looking at these too for my Son who goes to Chico

    But I'll pass for two obvious reasons.

    You saw them first.
    Not OEM woofers.

    Thanks, but now the boy's having car trouble, so no SF trips for a while.
