The Advent wins in my book. Please scroll thru all the pictures below as they are far better than any description I can write and I don’t 3411 you to miss out You can see how red the Sapele veneer is now. I’m sure replacement dust covers are available, and I’ve seen tweeters for jlb on ebay pretty regularly.

One cabinets has little corner scuff and there is a faint ring on the top of the the other one. I’ll check them out. The L’s are now finished. I did not repaint the backs of the speakers, perhaps I should have.

The mids have the silver basket, and the inverted dustcaps. I’ll take some photos of the components later, they are beautifully made, like all the JBL speakers of the 70’s.

If you keep the houseplants and cat piss 43311 them you’ll probably get back about what you paid, should you ever decide to sell. I did hesitate, for about five minutes, because there are some split seams and worn 431 on the “bottoms” of the cabinets where the controls are which is the side I would put “up” to keep the mid and tweet higher.

Drivers are in perfect condition. Here, the walnut ‘s are all set for finish. Unless they’re B’s with the Hbl, maybe you’ll get lucky and find an early set with the alnico pro driver. The rest of the photos below are of the ‘s. Once the detailed sanding and filling are done, I put a coat of Watco Danish oil on them and do even more detail work to make sure that no glue shows.


JBL 4311? Willi I be disappointed?

The ‘s will simply be sanded and refinished. I think they are the walnut version, but I don’t know if they have the AlNiCo drivers. The fronts and backs have new black paint. I haven’t agreed to purchase, only to look at them. The veneer has been sanded to grit and the fronts and backs of the L’s have new black paint. Here they are with the cane grills. I still have the In my opinion the B’s are better than the earlier alnico version but both are awesome. In great working condition.
