How to rebuild JBL Paragon D44000

Nice video of Paragon rebuild. They love the stainless. The finish they did is superb.

Excerpt from the video description.

This is the highest quality sound and most beautiful JBL PARAGON re-built by KENRICK SOUND
- Beryllium diaphragms for JBL 375
- Back covers and 075(2402) horns are made of solid stainless steel
- Center brackets and screw washers are made of solid stainless steel
- Teflon silver wires and Gold speaker terminals
- All drivers have been re-magnetized
- All capacitors in the crossovers have been replaced to new ones
- All screws are new ones
- Polyester paint finish 30 gloss level on the cabinets

Might as well post the Everest DD5500 they have posted as well..... I like the size of the horns :)

JBL IS YOUR SPEAKER Advert 1958

Here are some vintage JBL ads. This is very cool. They even encouraged you to build with their components. I wish more companies still did this as it can be difficult to get certain new production parts. This is one of my favorite JBL time periods with the Hartsfield, Paragon and many classic drivers. The prices held up very well just look some of these up on ebay.
