If you have a JBL D130, and you want the classic sound that it had when it was
new, then you need to recone your speaker with this kit. JBL no longer makes a
recone kit for the JBL D130 with a paper surround. If you have JBL or an
authorized JBL repair shop recone your JBL D130, they will use a recone kit for
a E130 that has a cloth m-roll surround. The E130 kit will gives your classic D130 the sound of a
We have done a lot of research on this kit. We know you want the very best for
your vintage speaker. We started with the voice coil, custom made for
SoundSpeakerRepair.com. The voice coil is flat wire wound / edge wound, with
aluminum wire, wound on a Nomex former. The venting holes have been placed in
exactly the same location as the original coil. The coil has the correct
polarity and DCR of 5.6. Yes this is the correct DCR for an 8 ohm JBL D130 coil.
If you recone a JBL D130, 8 ohm speaker with a DCR other then the correct DCR
of 5.6, your speaker will not sound like a D130. The coil weighs 5 grams,
again the same as the original coil.
The coil was made to the exact specifications of the original JBL D130 voice coil
except for the former height. We increased the former height 0.0394 of an inch to
accommodate the modern spider.
The original JBL D130 kit assembly (cone over coil, spider over
cone) was difficult and unpractical way of assembling. Also, the original spider is no longer in
production. JBL has moved to a new, now standard, assembly method (spider over coil,
cone over spider). We have also adopted this method and use the modern JBL
spider. This new spider is 0.0394 of an inch taller at the cone mounting point. This is why we made the
coil 0.0394 of an inch taller to accommodate for the modern spider.
The cone shape is curve linear with a paper surround. The cone
custom made for us to fit the new height of the voice coil and spider assembly. The cone
weighs the correct 20 grams. Unfortunately, the vintage cone pulp formula is no
longer available. The modern pulp is very close in consistency, resulting in
an excellent cone in weight, strength and resonant frequency. If we could find
original cones, we would use them. Original cones are not available. Yes,
you can find so called NOS cones on eBay, but they are not original and weigh
26 grams, not 20 grams (as do ours and the original D130 cones). If you could
find an original cone, it would be dried out and brittle, making it completely unusable.
This D130 recone kit is pre-assembled using our custom
manufactured jig, created exclusively for this recone kit. Using this jig to assemble the D130 recone
kits ensures the spider and cone are set to the exact proper depth to put
the voice coil in dead center to the magnets top plate every time, giving you
the most efficient speaker possible after reconing. We use only top grade
cyanoacrylate adhesive for the coil to spider joint and spider to cone joint
resulting in a superior light weight bound that will hold up with years of use.
We use an aftermarket aluminum dust cap for this kit. The kit is assembled
in such a way as to accept an original JBL aluminum dust cap if you choose to use
one. Original dust caps can be found from time to time on the internet.
The cork gaskets we use are the modern rubberized cork gaskets,
the gaskets used by JBL today.
We include a 1 oz. tube of glue with this kit for gluing
the surround and spider to the frame. This is the same Moyen RS-3087 adhesive that is
shipped with original JBL recone kits and re-packaged for
A voice coil centering shim is included. The shim is used
to keep the voice coil centered in the voice coil gap while the recone kit is
fitted to the speaker
frame. The shim is removed after the adhesive has dried.
Printed instructions are included with the kit, and can also be view online.
