The Jensen name carried on . I think the parent company was namsung or something like that. They had Dual, Jensen, Advent, NHt, Phase Linear, AR,
Audiovox and more.
SICA Altoparlanti, an Italian speaker manufacturer in Italy is re-manufacturing the vintage Jensen musical instrument speakers that were popular in the 60's.

Never know till ya try......as far as selecting woofs go, I know there are certain parameters that are compatible with certain cabinets, but I'm the wrong guy to tell ya what those are..

Got some work started on the cabs, the baffle and sides of the throat in one cab were loose, old glue was failing so I removed them and will glue them in proper, the baffle on the other was also a bit loose will do that one as well, refurbed the handles a bit..... all the trim, corners, and handles had phipips screws holding them on 120 screws per cab and all the slots on the screws were packed with some sort of hard crap so had to use small jeweler screwdrivers to dig the crap out of the screw slots to get them out with the screw driver, that was pretty tedious but glad that is done

the baffle came out with one of the baffle braces
