Help! check old JBL Speakers before bye.
Excuse my english i'm from Sweden.
I have found two old JBL speakers for sale.
How do I check if they are worth the price ?
It's two 4530 Horn (haven't opened them yet)
with two home made (ugly) top's with LE85 and 075
and I think they are 30 years old.
They have been stored for the last 20 years.
What should I check ? I have only tested them with a small amp (40w) so far I don't trust
the old (non JBL) passive filters.
I will soon test with two big amp's with a active filter.
But even with ny small amp and half volume they sounded a lot!
Do I need to change the diaphragms ? Do I need to re mag the magnets ?
The Price tag starting point is $570:-
I want to use them for garden parties :-)
