I’m just now getting to work on a pair of JBL LX55 speakers I picked up from goodwill a few weeks back for a whopping $4.99 each. I knew nothing really about them at the time but operated on the assumption that all JBL speakers are worth at least $10. Cabinets are a walnut VINYL veneer unfortunately but such is life with “newer” (post 1970s) audio components. The front is in good condition, veneer is peeling in the back but is intact and looks to be easily re-adhereable, the grill cover fabric is a bitted tattered requiring new fabric (super cheap at Joann’s), and the woofers need refoamed. Luckily the front foam (some sort of reflection damping material) is in great shape and cones aren’t dented. Thank goodness for grill covers! Research on audiokarma seems to indicate that these are fairly decent sounding bass heavy (has rear port) consumer grade speakers that originally sold for $400 back in 1989-1992.
