I mentioned to my amp tech that I was looking for some K120's and he said he may have a pair of D120's he could sell me. They would go into a twin reverb 65 reissue. Should I hold out for the K's or go for the D's? What should I be aware of before I purchase them if I do? Whether they've been reconed? What else?

Amp tech said the D120's are reconed with later oem factory JBL kits bringing them up to K120 power ratings. Am I sill better off waiting for K's or will the reconed D's be as good or better? I have read that the D's are never as good as the original but I've also read reconed K's or E's are just as good or better than original cones.
