Where did this speaker come from ? "my guess would be a 67' or 68' Dual Showman cabinet....( 2x D130F 8-16ohm wired in Parallel. Wiring two ... Two 16 ohm speakers = 8 ohm load ...)
"The JBL D130F vs JBL D130 had a slightly wider voice coil gap,.057in vs. .053in, to allow for speaker torqued too tight on warped baffles and increased voice coil rock and tilt from the transients of guitars, bass, etc....and had the "goop" dope applied to make the surrounds more durable in weather"
