    Vintage JBL c36 Speaker Information?

    Hi,
    I picked up these HUGE vintage JBL speakers today at a local church rummage sale, they have the wooden cabinet, and cloth grills.. with some other information on the back. I've attached some photos. Does anyone know the model of the drivers?? The gentleman said that they still work great.. but I don't have a receiver to test them on. Thanks for all of the help.
    Mike

    030 system

    Hey...nice find. Should be fun to clean up.

    That has the 030 system which consists of D130 low frequency driver, 075 high freq driver and N2600 crossover network.

    Thanks for the information. I'll clean them up, and maybe someone will be interested in them on the net auction sites. They must be worth more than the $25.00 I spent on them! They are really TOO BIG for my needs!

    Original owner probably sold them on Ebay for ten-times what this guy paid for the boxes. Next we'll see these for sale without the 075s which will have met a similar fate to the legs. Next the D130s. Hate to say it but the fate of these as parts is pretty well already determined. Sad. Got to love a true vintage two-way.

    In a few days, these will be sitting in my shop getting some TLC, and shortly after that will be sitting in my den...never to be parted out as long as I am alive. Nope. No Ebay, no A-gone. No way.

    I have been looking for a pair of factory 030 variants for many years, and the fact that these have been sitting 20 miles away all this time blows my mind (one needs to understand the low population density of where I live to fathom the probability of this happening). Good karma?...

    Now on the other hand...expect to see some L46s, L110s, or L40s up for sale soon. My cheif financial officer insists that my JBL hobby remains, at a minimum, cost-neutral....

    All in all, a pretty cool find, and everyone wins with this one...
