Seems someone had attempted a repair on one of the original 12" speakers - it developed a rub and took a dive on me last week😢
Wondering if I should get a recone kit from Weber or install a replacement.
Thoughts, suggestions, specs appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
.

this one of the alnico jobbers? i have one that i repaired a tear in. sounds killer but I'm up to my eyeballs in speakers. unsure if this one has the metal dust cap or, but i'd be willing to send it to you if you paid shipping

I don't understand which model it is that you have as the L795 model has a 2-15" cab.

Are you referring to the 745 PA model that uses 12" drivers.

At any rate if it's one of the original drivers and you care about maintaining the valve of the amp then, yes I would send it to Weber for a re-cone job, but only you Can answer that question !

Sorry for the delay...family matters came to forefront this past week.

Steve, you are correct. 745PA 12" speakers - one of four in column.

Thetragichero, have to pull the back off to check, will update soon as I see. If you have a match I would take you up on the offer.

These do have the metal dust cap. I will get back to you on this ...
Otherwise I will be ordering a kit to recone it.

Got a JBL D-130F on the bench right now that I am reconing, so I'm not adverse to that route either.

Thanks to both for the reply.
