Harry, you will not have the full output of the amplifier available if you run a
16 ohm speaker on an 8 ohm amplifier.

>Also a “true” D-130 is different than a D-130F.

That is correct – the F is more rugged for portable use as a musical instrument
speaker as compared to home use only on a fixed environment.

Yes, and No. The “F” originally stood for Fender, since they were the largest
purchasers, and at one time, the distributor for all the JBL guitar speakers.
But the D130F speaker was not designed specifically by, or for them and the F
eventually came to be just an indicator for all of the JBL musical instrument
series speakers. The D130F did not have any significant frequency range
differences, compared to the home version – the D130.

I can’t comment on this accurately, but I believe the D kit restores the speaker
to a home version, while the E kit is the musical instrument cone assembly. I
feel I must tell you there is slightly more relief on the D130F top plate to
accomodate a wider variety of mounting techniques (i.e., idiots who use torque
wrenches to flatten these frames onto a warped baffle board).

I hope this helps corrects some misconceptions.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

A collection of songs and riffs that I’ve worked out over the years, plus some libraries of stuff I’ve converted to tablature. I’ve included most of the notes and instructions that helped me when I was learning to play blues harmonica.
