I'm pretty sure Beyma will most likely do the 15"s since they are starting on the 12"s.
Original JBL D120F speakers don't handle a lot of power. I think 60 watts is about the maximum. They often blew when installed as OEM speakers in Twin Reverbs, and both Duane Allman and Dickey Betts destroyed a truckload between them. The K120, and especially the E120 can withstand much more power.
Are you sure? I've got orange JBL D120Fs in my Twin...I thought they were about 75w? What power rating would be 'safe' in a Twin anyway?
Hope this isn't a faux pas but figured this thread was the perfect starting point!
I too am looking for JBL D120 (or E120) clones since most originals are outrageously priced and right off the bat need to be reconed. Yuck. Seems hard to justify spending $700 bucks on a pair of speakers plus shipping to me then shipping them out to be reconed then shipped back. That's like $1000 and too much time in transit for my tastes.
Here is what I see that we have as our choices:
Peavey 1203s ( 15" = 1501DT) Black Widow
EVM L12 (I think)
Tone Tubby Ceramic
Here is are good things that I read:
