JBL K-120!!! best of both worlds!
How are you going to do that?High Peaks wrote:D-120's will break up more. Both great speakers. I am about to try out getting a k-120 recone on an e-120 basket. I will let everyone know the outcome.
2 completely different speakers with different motor assemblies, voice coil design, and most importantly power handling and frequency range.George wrote:I've been told that if I can find them, the D-120 speakers are much better. I want to put some jbls into a twin I'll be getting soon. Any thoughts or recommendations here? thanks!
Well, yes, if you're looking for a JBL and this is the amp you're going to use, then yes, the E120-16 is correct. Those actually don't come up that often, the 16 Ohm E120's.George wrote:
Here's another quick question along the same lines: my current amp is a peavey valveking 112 that uses one 16 ohm 12" speaker. There's currently an E-120 16 ohm on ebay for sale. would it be worth it to throw that bad boy into my valveking? I'm thinking probably not, but thought i'd toss the question out for any thoughts or feedback. thanks!
I have a pair of Weber NeoMags and gearheads and soundguys have said "those vintage JBLs sound great"Jon S. wrote:If you have your heart set on a vintage speaker, stop now & ignore the rest of this post!
Two nice alternative options to the super heavyweight JBLs are the Jensen Neo and the Weber NeoMag. I have the Jensen Neo in one of my amps, it is full ranged, very clear with a bottom end that is as solid as it gets. I've heard wonderful things about the NeoMag, too, which is designed specifically to replace JBL D series speakers (with a special focus on the alnico D120 and D120F).
A pair of either in an amp like a Twin will cut the amp's weight very, very significantly. I didn't care about that 20 years ago. I do now.
