JBL LX5 crossovers rebuilt (PAIR)
-All capacitors replaced with F-Dyne Audio Capacitors. Exact values.
-All resistors replaced with wire wound, non-inductive resistors. Exact values.
-Tested and reused 2 existing coils.
-Wax removed and cleaned up housing.
-Rotary switch - sprayed with DeoxIT and scrubbed with soft nylon brush. Tinned all solder lug contacts with Cardas Quad Eutectic Silver Solder. Sprayed with Flux-Off and scrubbed again with Nylon brush. Let dry and coated all moving parts and contacts with Fader F5 lubricant.
-Face plate and housing - cleaned and "Sharpie" touch ups (no repaint), cleaned oxidation from non-painted aluminum details / lettering / knob.
-All metal parts removed were soaked in MEK to remove tarnish and old flux.
-Push connectors treated with Fader F5 lube.
-Coils and caps held in place with latex adhesive (will be much easier to get out than the wax JBL used)
-Coil wires lengthened with 20G stranded, tinned copper wire to reduce fatigue to solid coil wires when cover comes off. Used same color wires as JBL.
-Insulation sheathing at solder joints in wires replaced with shrink tubing.
-All existing solder joints were resoldered with Cardas Quad Eutectic Silver Solder.
-Units burned in 12 hours each so far.
-All wax and old parts have been saved. You can have these if you want. Wax could be melted and poured in (I don't want to do it!). Resistors are all very close to their original value. Capacitors are no where close to their original values, most are cracked. Units worked before rebuilding. I'm guessing crossover points and curves were not what they should have been.
-Included is a copy of JBL schematics for the LX5. Serial # 13748 and 13751.
-Please look closely at the pictures. The exterior is not perfect. There are imperfections, most I've covered fairly well.
-The inside cleaned up very well. Most of the hardware JBL used was made very well and just needed cleaning to remove 50 years of oxidation, tarnish and grime. The capacitors in every JBL crossover of this era I've taken apart are what fail. The coils last forever and resistors are easy enough to upgrade and replace even if the existing measure good. $561.00 Paypal plus shipping or $500.00 Local Pick Up / cash
