This new forum seems like the perfect reason to post a thread about my little project. I was gifted a pair of 4312’s that were in decent shape... but far from perfect. When I got them one of the port tubes had come loose and fallen into the speaker. So after letting them sit in a closet for months, I finally decided to get into them. Originally I was just going to open up the one speaker, fix the port tube and put it back togeather and flip them. But then the designer in me took over and I was like... what’s another project on top of the other half dozen or so I already have! I quickly decided I wasn’t going for a restoration. JBL purists might gasp... but I like to make stuff the way I find it cool and I find its pretty easy to find people who like my style when it’s time to sell. Plus... these weren’t museum pieces and non-sequential serial numbers etc... I decided I want to go with JBL blue baffles. Because everyone loves that! I sanded the cabs and applied two coats of Osmo PolyX Oil. Fresh coat of black on the backs. You can see the plugs where I fixed the holes from where these were flown/hung in a studio in a past life.
