Awesome TJ! It should be a plug and play thing. You can't tell if it's bad until you try it. It's prolly the shit!! You can make a 1x12 cab for it or replace one of the commonwealths in your 2x12. I liked that when I did it. Now you can attest to an A B commonwealth / JBL test. Would like to see what you think between the two. Nice gift!!

Tom, looks like a original E-120 to me. You have nothing to loose by trying to use it. The only concern I have from your comments is that you can see the back of the dust cap. There should be a foam disc in place between the vent on the rear of the speaker and the back of the dust cap. It most likely has dry rotted and is now small pieces and dust. It will sometimes cause unwanted noise and if it gets in the voice coil gap can do damage. But as I said you have nothing to loose by trying it. If it does not work or does not sound right let me know. We can recone it.

Hey Vin
I was wondering if you had any advice for me about this speaker
viewtopic.php?f=419&t=13251
Got it from my Uncle who said he never used it ... but its dirty and the dust cap is dented a bit
I can see thru the " port " in the back of the speaker to the backside of the dust cap ... is that right ?
You think i should just plug it in and see what happens ?
I know people still play them but dont they have a limited lifespan ?
New territory for me ...
Thanks man
I appreciate any help/advice you have
- Tom

Dutch... if the foam disc is gone, can the screen be removed and the disc replaced without a re-cone? Is this user serviceable?

Thanks Dutch .... I can see foam disc thru the vent .... it has rotted or fallen out as you said.
How close to the original will it sound with a recone ? If it needs one ?
Gonna get it in the cab tonight
