Yeah, but the JBL's aren't a vintage Japanese speaker. biggrin.gif

 

If you want vintage JBL, then don't go halfway. Go full crazy with a pair of 4350's!

Oops!!  Didn't notice they needed to be Pioneer........in that case I'd be looking for HPM-100s then.

And he'd still be getting a kinda-sorta-somewhat JBL speaker seeing as the HPM-100's were designed by former JBL engineer Bert Locanthi.

Someone on the DC Craigslist is selling a pair, but he lives an hour or more out of town.  Someone else has put pictures of 2 pair in his listing for 2 Pioneer SA-9500 amps  and 2 Technics SL-1100 turntables.  The pictures in that listing are worth looking at.  The guy has a tower of 5 turntables.  http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/mld/ele/2417077549.html

So here are my poor burhoe speakers, I am really considering re-cabing them. I love their sound out of my old Sony STR-V5

Lots to be learned in those pics about how not to place a speaker in a room.  Bet the bass is boomy as hell being reinforced by those corners.

Anybody know about Advent Legacy speakers? There's a pair locally for about $40  and they need  new woofers but I'm looking for a summer project to do anyway. Would these be worth fixing up and maybe trying to resell later down the road?

You should refurb the cabinets.  I do love those old Burhoe Speakers.  I'll have to post my Blue one day, they're pretty beat too but they sound great!

I just may, I need to wait untill I get some more funding, As luck would have it I know a killer woodworker that would do the woodwork dirt cheep. Should I referb them factory fresh or modern them up a bit? I'd love to get my hands on a pair of Blues to go with my Greens!

You could just get a new cab, and replace the caps on the crossover to make them shine like new.  If you go the custom route you can always put the drivers in vertical alignment if you want.

 

Here is a picture of my Blue:

Here are my babies:

 

I have 7 of these running in my 7.1 home theater set-up and 4 as an inverted pair running as my main stereo set-up:

 

JBL 4311

Then I have two of these running in my second stereo set-up.

Most likely I will just go the factory fresh route. New cabs and I forgot about the caps, so ill need to do that as well.

 

Love those blues!
