JBL L100T: Speaker or Food Storage?

I was recently given a pair of JBL L100T speakers from the late 80’s.  They needed to have the foam surround replaced because the originals had started to rot away. I ordered new surround from Speaker Works (http://www.speakerworks.com/) so that I wouldn’t have to pay an arm and a leg for the repair.

In order to replace the foam surrounds, I needed to first remove the woofers from the cabinet so that I could work on the speaker more easily.  After removing the speaker, I discovered a large pile of what appeared to be cat food in the bottom corner of the speaker.

Here are some of the photos taken on my phone. Apologies for the poor quality, the room was dark and I had to use a flash for up close photos…

I pulled the bag's worth of cat food out of the speaker cabinet.

More later when I get the speaker surrounds replaced!
