Charge Coupled networks using Jantzen components built by Nigel AKA Green Wagon. Internally rewired. See thread below:

 

Rebuilt subwoofer plate amp, every component replaced besides the tranny. All tracks resoldered. Larger Mundorf filter caps and bridge rectifier. This sub digs very deep. The plate amp was always a little underpowered hence on the 2nd hand market they are always blown. This one has been rebuilt. It would have been cheaper/better to use an aftermarket plate amp but I wanted everything original, possibly something the next owner can investigate if they want to but not required. Over $500 worth of parts in the plate amp. See thread below:

These speakers have a fairly flat frequency response for a JBL of the 70's. Very admirably measured from 30hz - 20khz +.  I will say without a doubt running the satellites full range without the sub they absolutely destroy the NS1000's in the lower octaves. That little 8inch woofer would punch a hole in the 12inch of the NS1000's. May not go as deep as the NS1000's due to cabinet being designed for an 70hz roll off but for an 8 inch with a 3inch voice coil, its killer. Also the 12inch woofer in the sub has a beasty 4 inch voice coil and the same magnetic assembly of the 15 inch JBLs of the era.

 

Both the mid-bass and subwoofer drivers have alnico magnets. The mid-bass unit has been re-spidered and foamed by Gary Cawsey at a significant expense.

 

The subwoofer cabinent and satellite speaker bases have been relacquered. The subwoofer is pretty much flawless with a small scratch on the face of the plate amp. The satellite bases are in very good nick with a few imperfections in the veneer where the furniture restorer had perform patch ups. Very very acceptable and better than most other pairs I have seen. Also the satellites are on castors.

Hi mate, sold these a while ago now.

 

Wouldn't have parted with sub regardless. They need to go as a set.
