This is for a pair of speakers. The drivers are perfect and original. The tweeter horn lens and phase plug have been carefully removed, hand polished, and reinstalled. New aftermarket diaphragms installed (I did a lot of research and tried many replacements to find ones that matched as close to OEM as possible), as one was damaged, but original diaphragm also included. All of the crossover components are new, with Mills resistors, Dayton 1% caps, and new inductors.
New gold plated binding post for the input terminals. New gold badges and new gold and brown striped grill cloth installed on the original front baffles. All brass hardware used throughout. The cabinets are brand new, built by a local high-end furniture maker.
They are oak ply with oak veneer, book-matched all around, then hand rubbed with oil. Internal dampening material reinstalled, more added to the side walls. New era-appropriate gold pin legs installed that are the same height as the original legs. This is as close as you can get to a brand new pair of C38 Barons.They will sound just as JBL intended, have a great mid-century modern look, and are very efficient. Each speaker weighs close to 40 pounds.
