FACTORY CERTIFIED 59~75
so make sure to check it out!

Jaguar Radios 59~75 being the same as Corvette Radios use a speaker mounted loading coil with out this coil bias on speaker goes to 12 Volts D.C. burning out the voice coil in the speaker and then the DS-501


I have ran across new speaker that are said to be for 1959 through 1975 JAGUAR~CORVETTES but have a .5 ohm coil IN PLACE OF A 1.5 OHM. This will cause bias on speaker terminal to drop to .5 Volts D.C. IT SHOULD BE 1.5 Volts D.C., overheating radio in about 15 minutes, sound becomes very fuzzy, gives you a headache! Along with slowly over heating wiring harness all the way back to battery. Drain on fuse is not enough to blow fuse only to slowly break down insulation on wiring causing a short that could burn car to ground!


Factory 6X9 Delco Corvette speaker with loading coil. The yellow aftermarket coil should be checked for proper impendeance of 1.5 ohms and are bad untill proven good! I see a lot of them that are .6 of an Ohm.

If you have recently replaced your speaker and have this symptom simply ring out speaker and if it reads less than 1.5 Ohms, or less than 1.5 Volts D.C. across speaker leads. Then return to vendor and tell them they sold you the WRONG speaker. [This speaker over heats RADIO, WIRING AND, WILL CAUSE CAR TO BURN TO GROUND]


Now as to the 986281 1965, 1966, 1967 Delco Corvette Radio used in the Jaguar I have done at least 5K in my life time first one was in 1966 at the age of 13, two years before i got Certified by Delco. MOST of them did not work right from the factory suffering form poor assembly. I think this was the first radio some of these folks ever built they sho did not know how to solder! I get $300.00 to do other AM/FM MONO units that are clean cores BUT these units have tuning board problems that require me to completely disassemble radio and rebuild that board as well and since these are the only ones i have to do that to, i charge another $100.00 for that service, only takes a day IF i am lucky. For a TOTAL OF $420.00 with return shipping.
