Keith Question about JBL speakers
There are orangeback and grayback D 130 F speakers , is there a difference between the two in sound and which one of the two was manufactured first?
And now, a word from our sponsors:

Hi Keith,  
I'm no expert at this, but I know Fender made JBL speakers an option for there piggy back amps in the early to mid 60's. The D-130's were available in the Showman's & Dual Showman's.  
These speaker's were gray in color, but had Fender part numbers.  
The orange speaker's did not appear until the early 70's. I've heard several of each & I can't tell any difference in sound. There both equally cool!
