Do not but JBL recone kits from Legacy Sound Service. They don't fit right. (at least the E-120 kit)
they claim OEM but they are not.

If you hadn't said which was which, I'd have never known one was a recone. Looks good!

since you just reconed maybe you know the answer to my dumb question, what are those 2 drip marks on all speakers? i figure it has to serve a purpose since if it was just from over gluing someone would have figured out how to clean it up by now.

Those are the wires from the voice coil that connect to the terminals on the frame. THey are delicate and the bedding in glue protects them and heals the holes in the cone which they pass through.
Honest to the point of recklessness.

I think your cabinet turned out looking great! A lot of folks on RUK like the look of Jerry gear and want it as close as possible, like reproductions of Tiger and wolf. It's all subjective. Good job!

So something just occurs to me .. I dont think I'm running in parallel .. I have each side of my SS power amp running to its own single speaker.. So that would mean I'm actually creating an 8 ohm load at the amp.. Is this right? Am I that thick that I was running 8 ohms the whole time? Which actually might have been a good thing , seeming the power rating of my amp vs speaker power rating..

You are correct, that is not parallel. And, Yes, you are drawing 8 ohms if each speaker is 8 ohms.

If you wired the speakers together in parallel you would be drawing a 4 ohm load.

Crown XLS 1000 Provides 215W/channel at 8 ohms, 350W/channel at 4 ohms, 700W at 8 ohms bridged.
