« A JBL "Sleeper" Classic »

Published on 03/29/19 at 09:48
Value For Money : Excellent
Audience: Anyone
I recently acquired a pair of these and refurbished them. Both tweeters were dead and the woofers required new surrounds and dust caps. The LE26 tweeters are now discontinued, and rebuild kits are also obsolete. There is an aftermarket vendor who supplies a faithful reproduction. The woofers found in these are either 116A with alnico magnets (early models) or 116H with ceramics. Dust caps and surrounds are easy enough to find. I opted not to do a crossover recap just yet, but cleaned the L-pads with deoxit. I paired these with a NAD 7020, and these little boxes blew me away. They are nearly identical to the 4301 studio monitors with the differences being the high frequency attenuation knob location and the low end capacitor on the crossover. These can still be found relatively on the cheap, as they are not as famous as some of their cousins, but are getting harder to find. If you come across a pair at a reasonable price, pick them up!
