JBL 4311

Anyone know anyone who specializes in restoring 4311's etc?

Oh man, I remember those. A friend once described them as the ultimate party speaker. Nice bottom, the highs really cut through and the midrange will never interfere with conversation.

I've got a pair of original 4311-A's. They sound good, but I want to turn them out and replace the tweet, mid cone, and woofer with all new parts (original replacement parts that is). It'd be icing on the cake to get the cabinet reconditioned too, but thats at the bottom of my list. I am actively pursuiting NOS parts and replacements from people parting out they're monitors, but I figured i'd ask around and see if theres someone out there known for restoring these. Regarding how they sound, I think in combonation with the my NS's, they sound perfect. They swallow low end, the highs are smooth, and the mid range is indeed very "organic". The NS's on the other hand are mid range intensive and very box. But they're excellent for what they do.

I had a pair of the 4411s soffitt mounted along with the 4430s ,

The 4411s sounded like a "home stereo " speaker to me lots of highs and low end...... i liked to use them to check the mix with, I had them powered with a Blaze linear heh .... defiantly not flat response, but a cool sound.

Doesn't JBL have a list of factory authorized re-coning centers on their site?
