I recently bought a pair of piano black JBL 250 ti Jubilee's. This is my second pair, the first pair are the wooden cabinet with the famous 044 tweeters.
I got them at a bargain price, even considering the tweeters have to be replaced, as they were 're-modelled' by childrens fingers.
I know the golden 050 tweeters are very hard to find, but this does not worry me much. I believe silver 050 tweeters were used in the european L20 / L2000, L40 / L4000, L60 / L6000, L80 / L8000, L90 / L9000, L100, 1000 ti, 3000 ti and 5000 ti JBL models, so sooner or later a nice pair will appear on e-bay.
However I have a pair of 035ti lying around (originating from a pair of L60T 's) that I can use.
Also I saw that JBL has the 052 tweeter that one can buy at reasonable prices.
My questions for you guys are:
1. Does anyone have a pair of 050's (silver or gold) lying around and is willing to sell at a reasonable price (please be aware of the credit crunch!!)?
2. If I would have to choose between the 035ti and the 052, which option would give me the best sonic match compared with the original 050's?
3. And would any changes to the network would be required if I were to use the 035ti or the 052?
Your help is appreciated!!
