    JBL 076's or 2403's

    Hi All

    Just in case some of you got any of those horns Mike Caldwell sold a while back I wanted to share this. Mine were very tarnished and on one the face was deeply gouged in several places.


    I would recommend a Dremel tool with rubbing compound to get rid of the tarnish. After that, simply drag it in the same direction face down repeatedly on a belt sander. I would not attempt running the belt sander or you could take off to much aluminum very quickly.



    As you can see these look pretty close to factory new condition. Note on the back horn the gouge close to the opening. I would have loved to get it out but would have to take off several mils more of the face.

    I should have taken a before picture. This is a vast improvement.


    Hope this helps someone.



    Ken

    I wish I had a nice wood and metal shop but sadly I don't. I have a few entry level power tools but thats about it.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Well, I would love to mount them below the small horn like an SM1 but unfortunately there is not enough space, so they are going below the inside port on each side.

    That will be nice. Please disregard the twin cat eye per cabinet idea, did not mean to implant the idea but I was thinking about going with a pair of slots per cabinet in my 4350 project. I thought maybe I found someone with the same H.F. desires. Just do not forget to take tons of pictures of everything you see in those top secret cabinets PLEASE.

    Oh and measurements of every thing in there as well. If you know when you are doing this let me know,if I am in the area I will lend a hand.

    I am using 2405 Alnico's with 076 8 ohm phragms although I have only found 1 phragm so far. Until I secure a 2nd I will use the 16 ohm 2405's.

    The current JBL parts list still has the D8R076 diaphragms listed at $144 - 'don't know if they really have them or not.

    I sent JBL 3 emails with no reply to any of the 3.

    I would love to have these as stock 2403/076's.
