    JBL L100 quadrex grills foam

    Hello,
    I am looking for information on the dimensions of the original foams for JBL L100. Does anyone can help me? I've originals grills but foams seem some replacement.




    I have the opportunity to do it yourself.

    The information is here, do a search, many many threads and posts on the subject
    One member here is, or at one time, was also in the business of manufacturing exact replacements; he may still be
    There is also a competing vendor on ebay who also offers what they claim to be exact replacements and as far as I know have never received any negative reviews
    He (our fellow forum traveler) invested a great deal of sweat equity and money in creating them, maybe if you ask nicely he will be willing to short himself a sale and share with you his hard earned knowledge
    Good luck

    Yes, earlier it was on ebay, but now there is no auction with foam inserts

    It sounds like you have the equipment and know-how to make them yourself and only need accurate dimensions. Is that correct? If so, I think that's great, as the ones on ebay come with frames and are very expensive. Maybe if a board member could help you out you could make up a few extra pairs and make them available here. Just a thought...

    The OP is not asking where he can buy the foams, he's asking for help in making his own.

    He said he couldn't find an auction for the them and I gave him a link to a completed auction from the seller. Seems like he's looking for photos and someone to talk to or give him information. I didn't misunderstand: Yes, earlier it was on ebay, but now there is no auction with foam inserts

    We're all trying to help him find his answers. More power to him if he wants to make his own. Anyone with those fake-but-fun models around here have a ruler??

    Fix the foam in the frame

    Thinking about ordering foam to my L100s.
    But how on earth is the foam fixed to the frame?
    No velcro, no tight countersink...

    Take note of Sonofagun's advice to have the foam facing up while curing, so that glue doesn't flow onto the front of the grille.

    Business update

    Am willing to relocate to partner with anyone interested in the grille business - lots of $$ to be made!

    OK - about ready to give up on this - still swamped with orders (usually prepaid) and inquiries. I'm open to ANY kind of offers of partnership to help this business (PM me). Need some younger blood for revitalization! Unlimited growth opportunity to the right person. I'll relocate if need be (with help) and at least want to be involved as an adviser.
