After researching and hearing so many positive comments about the cabs I decided to find a pair, well I did and hear they are. I was told they were installed in a church and someone tried installing grills to the front edges causing a considerable amount of damage to the front edges.
The corners also has some damage this could have been caused in shipping. I think they have potential and can be saved, gives me another project to work on. JBL Project Tranquil , Sep 7, Today I got to spend a couple hours on the cabs and removed all the damaged edges. I'm starting to feel better about them already. I'm wondering if these cabs will benefit from some additional stiffening on the inside anyone with 's your input will be appreciated.
Tranquil , Sep 9, Good job! I don't think you'll see a real need for additional bracing. But I myself would probably do it simply because it won't hurt. I don't have any personal experience with the original though. I have way more bracing in mine than the original does. Testwork - Thanks, I don't think it will hurt to add a couple 1x2 pieces diagonally across the sides. I was also looking at the way they were braced on the inside side to side and front to back looks pretty rigid.
I might give them a test run before changing anything so I have something to compare. Messages: 2, Location: Ohio. Looks good. I might have just filled in the bad spots with wood putty, sanded and paint..? What driver are you intending to use? Cosmos , Sep 9, Messages: 10, Location: RIP I've got a set just waiting for my attention, too. They were 'flown' much like yours and I've had to fill the holes. My corners are in better shape but the tolex coverings have been scuffed quite a bit on mine, too.
I've been thinking about doing these things: - Using standard height kick frames from a cabinet shop to use as bases. I'll also use them for the Econo-wave experiments, too. It is turning out to be quite the versatile basic woofer module for sure. Keep us informed on your journey. Cheers, David.

Never tried, but it is allegedly possible to strip the vinyl with a hot iron and foil as prep for veneering Zilch , Sep 10, After getting those in place I decided to try removing the vinyl covering.
I used the iron and foil concept as suggested by Zilch. Thanks Zilch. Tranquil , Sep 27, Did the vinyl just shrivel up into a glob as I have seen before? Do you happen to have a pic of that to illustrate what happens? Looks like they're ready to accept whatever finish you'd like to put on them, now Zilch , Sep 27, The vinyl did shrivel up.
I placed a strip of Reynolds on the cab and made a few passes with the iron distributing the heat across the foil. I did a small area at a time 10"X10" too much heat makes it very soft and it breaks. With just enough heat the vinyl stretches and it comes off nicely. Without the foil it will melt the vinyl and just stick to the iron. Just about ready for a finish couple holes to fill and some sanding.
JBL project Tranquil , Sep 28, Oh NO! The big white JBL logo on the side is gone. Zilch , Sep 28, The JBL logo was painted over in black when I received them, in pulling off the vinyl they resurfaced. I'll find some logos for the grill, I also have to find some JBL woofer clamps.
