Hey guys I recently came across a set of LX-44's that need a good refoam but that seems to be the only problem with them.

The guy is asking $150 for the speakers.

What do you guys think? Also, what kind of amp on a college budget could I get that would go well with them?

Thanks

Joe

That speaker has an 026Ti tweeter, 405G midrange, and 408G woofer. Do both the 405G and 408G need refoaming? If so, then $150 is too much. Those refoams will cost $2030 each at a reliable speaker center. I believe factory kits are no longer available, so generic kits will need to be substituted.

There are still replacement drivers available from JBL. The 405G is $40.60 and the 408G is $152.24.

When fully restored, though, they will be very nice speakers.
