Default JBL 175 Drivers w/ Potato Masher 1217-1290 Horns/Lenses



I have an ebay auction for a pair of JBL 175 compression drivers, with the matching "potato masher" 1217-1290 horns/lenses

Serial #'s

Driver 1: 14063
Horn 1: 27470
Driver 2: 14046
Horn 2: 27517

The horns and drivers are in amazing condition. A couple of nicks, and that's about it. The paint and surface are almost perfect. The wax seals on the drivers are intact and have the JBL logo. They've never been opened or messed with.

These were taken out of a speaker cabinet that was working well as of 3 hours ago. The cabinets had JBL woofers and crossovers, which are also for sale (see my other auctions). We had the cabinets hooked up to a CD player and did a listening test and they sounded great. Classical Opera and chamber music sounded very warm and pleasant. Jazz and pop vocals also sounded rich, full, and vibrant, showcasing the original JBL from the 60's.

You are going to love these drivers. They have the true 60's JBL sound that is in high demand. Put these in some cabinets with some woofers and crossovers and you will have an awesome set of speakers.

Thanks for looking!
