RE: 1958 Single speaker JBL Hartsfield.

This was the first version of the Hartsfield. They sold it as a 'building block' sort of like the EV loudspeakers. You started with a full range 8", and then upgraded as your budget allowed. This early version had the woofer mounted at and angle towards the top of the loudspeaker. The later version had the woofer mounted vertically, lower in the box. By this time, they had done away with the 'building block' option, since so few people went that way. I have accurate plans I created in AutoCAD 3D of the later Hartsfield. I did these when I used to sell them on line.
