    Jensen JTE 603 Cabinet Speakers rebuild.

    Hi Gang,
    I've got a pair of these speakers behind the seats in 'Easy Bake' my black panel van.


    They've been in various rigs I've owned for a few decades now and they've served well enen when amplified modestly.



    Given their age and this climate we have in the PacNW the rubberesque parts of the drivers for these speakers has rotted away. These seem to measure between 5 1/4 to 5 1/2 inches and while I could modify these particle board enclosures I'm not looking to build a thump thump system, rather just rock out on the freeway to the likes of Foghat, ARS and others. Does anyone know how to accurately detirmine the size of these speakers? What I mean is, is it by the size of the hole? The size of the mounting ring? or the distace between the mounting holes? Sorry for this simplistic question but it's been many a moon since I've component upgraded speaker cabinets.

    Thanks and a lift of the lynch lid for your help.

    Well, I've detirmined the hole to be 5 5/8" diameter



    with clearance of 3 1/2" on the horizontal. These speakers are being driven by a Pioneer 100W per channel amp. Any reccomendations for reliable speakers would be very helpful. I have I understand as terrible horrific sub standard speakers coming from Sonic Electronics on friday and, as I understand it from other forums that I should make arrangements for return of these speakers without even trying them. So given this setup I'm hopiong for a reasonable and reliable maker of 5 1/2" speakers.

    Re: Jensen JTE 603 Cabinet Speakers rebuild.

    Got a call back from Sonic Electronix and returns are 100% no restocking fee if I simply return 'em. They have available Kenwood KFC1395 PS for around 50 clams and Alpine SPR50's at a lil' over 100 clams. Any opinions?+





    It's looking like these have a wider freq. resp. than the Goldwood or GRS's in the 5 1/4", so despite the cost, I'm leaning toward the Kenwoods for the moment.

    The box measures 3 1/2 x 9 1/2 x 16 1/2" internally, if I remember how to figure cubic feet it'd be .29
    What with the bass tube the low ends are just fine with these boxes

    Have u looked at the exodous anarchy 6.5s i think those would be great in a box. I just put my 6.5s CDT HD m6+ in a box and sounds nice.

    Last night I found a deal from Sonic on Alpine SPS-510's (80hz-22Khz 87db) So I may go with them.

    Well, time to go to plan B, since I'd have to mod the boxes for any speakers Sonic has to offer in pairs of 5 1/4, 5 3/4, 6 or 8 inches mounting hole I'm going with venerable Pioneer 6x9's. Similar specs to the killers I have in my CJ. Going to arrive in only three days (provided UPS doesn't leaver a trailer behind again)

    Edit: Got the holes cut for the Pioneer TS-A6965R's and installed 'em with the included hardware. First fire up and these really came alive! Going to trim the balance and Fader on my way home tonight but it seems the original speakers couldn't take advantage of the old Pioneer amp.
