    I have a JBL D120F speaker. How can I tell if it's original or a recone. There is a small label on the outside of the cone. Is that a "tell"?

    Thanks

    Sounds odd if JBL would have put a label on the cone, but then I'd doubt anyone would unless it was to be removed. Most recones are performed basically to spec's and I'm sure you'd have to be well aquainted with JBLs to spot a recone from appearance.

    Should I attempt to remove it?

    I have a D120F here with a little white oval label with a bunch of numbers on it on the back of the cone. It's just a part number for the kit I guess. I'm sure it's a factory kit. I wouldn't worry about it, JBL recones with factory parts are as good as new. If it offends you, pluck it out.
    If you screw it up and need to get it reconed again, you'll get a second chance to tear tags.;)

    It sure sounds good. I won't touch a thing. I need $ so if it was original I was going to sell it. Since it's a recone I'll just keep it and enjoy it.

    Thanks to all.
