Looks like a great deal!
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us

You've been had.

But, since I feel sorry for you, I'll take them off your hands for half what you paid... if you pick up the shipping.







:shock:
Seems like I've been here before...

They look authentic to me...if they have never been installed I imagine they will take some breaking in as any new speaker.
I have three and these are some heavy-ass, loud-ass speakers!
Congrats!

Thanks AK! I can't tell for sure, but they don't look reconed to me. If that's the case, they do look quite killer!!! 8)

i agree you stole those! they appear to be exactly as described! unlikely but they could be a killer recone with JBL parts which still appears to be a steal if it were the case. The aluminum dome is an easy replacement. as long as it's not a huge gash allowing air out it then no need to change them. my k120 has had 2 mic's slam into the dome's. i pulled what i could of the dents out with duct tape. while cosmetically they appear damaged, they still sound perfect with no flaws soundwise. so don't sweat your good fortune, but you should be prepared for the sweat you will produce lugging those bad boys around!LOL

peace,
waldo

Thanks for chiming in Mike. As always your opinion is valued! I don't see any breaks in the domes, but I'll check it when they get here. I like the duct tape trick! And... I'm ready for the workout!!! :lol:

Crap! What a great buy! He's only 30 miles from my house. Maybe I should drive over there and offer $20 more in cash... :lol:

They look identicle to some E120-4's I bought for $200 ea.
One thing... when they arrive, I would immediatly check that the speakers move in/out freely.
I had one arrive frozen in place (wouldn't move in/out at all).
I read where these mags can get jarred out of alignment (presumably in shipping), causing an irreparable lock-up.
Luckily, the guy had 8 of them, and had me ship it back and replaced with another (on his dime, and with no bad vibe at all).
Also, on the back side of the styrofoam (underneath the bottom styrofoam), there should be a small bag with mounting screws.
Mine also both came with a rubber gasket, which I have no idea what that is for... Anyone?

that rubber gasket is not needed, but is made to be used in a front loaded cab, ala jerry's, inbetween the speaker frame and cab. on a rear loaded cab the cork gasket is utilized.
