i just acquired a jbl d130f. i was so excited that i pulled the trigger too quickly...it has at some point been reconed with a d140f cone.

i'm considering reconing it back to d130f, but i'm also considering a 4 ohm kit, as it will be going into my twin reverb.

here's the kit i'm looking at:

does anybody have any experience with this kit, or general reconing advice?

I have used kits from this company before but for an EV15L. It sounded great and was very easy to do. I used to recone speakers for a music store in the 70's and this kit does to me the hardest part which is getting the coil depth correct 1st thing by pre assembling that section. Good luck with your project.

well, i did it and it sounds awesome.

it was very simple and straight forward. i had a little issue with the dust cap being a bit loose at first, but i figured it out. all the blown speakers in my basement are about to get new lives!
