So I'm going through my parent's basement and low and behold, I stumble across some vintage JBL Lancer 99 - Type E8-99 with an LX4-1 high frequency level control (crossover?). I was amazed to see someone posting a similar pair on ebay for nearly $800!
I'd love to restore them as I need a good DIY home project - not to mention I'd love to hear these back in clean action. Here's the catch, I'm new to this stuff. Can anyone recommend some good places to read up on speaker restoration? Pretty sure the "Lansalloy" needs to be replaced, but unsure what to replace it with.
Also, I'm assuming I want to retain the drivers/crossover, but one of the cones seems to have mild damage on it. They're in working condition, but they don't sound as clean as I'd like them to. What to do!?
