I’d hit up Chris Siegmund. He’s super nice and very knowledgeable. Although, if the idea is to make a JBL-esque speaker, at $350+ they’re not making it a no-brainer to go new over vintage.
Thanks, I shot Chris an email asking what the speaker was intended to do and how it compared to the Purple Haze, and his response was:
"With an increase in magnet weight and strength, the easier moving cloth surround allows the speaker to get to maximum efficiency and power handling. This also adds brightness and definition.
And although the cone is the standard thicker version, the tone is brighter and more articulate than the thinner cone used in the Purple Haze."
