Better or worse than the ? These jb originally installed as a center cluster in a roller arena here around or so. Posted April 9, IMHO the ‘s look better out of their cabs than in them, so I’m going to see if I can figure out a way to fly them naked without making them even more prone to ringing.
And maybe get a burn permit from the local FD. I have never run any of the 1″ drivers below 2. So I’m hoping that I can do something similar with the mids and highs jb, get better accuracy from the same components by building new cabinets that are better designed for the application. The C’s that I’m using now jbbl sound pretty good in the back jlb a decent sized room – its up front where they are lacking.
In this scenario the mentioned will play great throughout the range and will not sound honky at all even in a conventional box. Sign up for a new account in our community. I would expect that the diaphram would make most of the difference in HF response, but dont know for sure.
By this time most have had the original diaphragm replaced with a titanium type. I do believe that the compression driver spec sheets from the s and ’80s were all derived from the horn. Originally they had ‘s on them, which got replaced with ‘s.
However the response curves were done with a driver, which could be responsible for much of the rolloff because it quits at 15K.
About 20 years ago I moved the bass drivers out of scoops and into front loaded, ported cabinets, which made a huge improvement in the low end response, with only a minor loss of volume. Is that an L? The is a Radial horn and has different traits compared to a which is a CD horn. But unlike the ‘s, I havent been able to find any info on what the frequency response for the is supposed to be.
I was planning to put the ‘s with the ‘s on top and get everything in a single mid-high cabinet, however I dont want to put a lot of effort into making my mids sound nice up front, only to find that the highs are not really cutting it. The street term is: You might want to give us some more info re your crossover situation, amps etcthere are folks here with way more knowledge than me that will chime in with the real down and dirty.
Hi, the one I found have the original phenolics. Hello – I have a question about extending the upper range of some drivers.

At the time, the consensus seemed to be that factory sounded better, whether or not it was worth the 3x premium was subjective. I may see if I can find a pair of 2nd hand clones or maybe borrow a pair of loaded s. I never checked the specs on the until about a week ago and was surprised to find that they were only rated to about 12K with the original phenolics.
That way, I 24661 front load my mids now which should make the jhl system sound jbk before before making final decision on the horns. I havent tweaked the crossover points in a long time, but my recollection is that 2. Posted April 10, Or is there another horn that would be better suited as the main HF horn in a smallish watt per side system that will sound good close to the front and still be able to project bjl a medium size room on occasion?
If I can fly them, that should help even more. Since I dont really need the long throw so much anymore, I’m hoping that putting them in sealed front loaded boxes will get rid of the honk up front.

In each case you are running a deal higher than the optimal band for each driver jbp a hi fi sense I would be looking at or less for your 15’s and bring your HF down to or even IIRC, the spec sheet for the back page has the frequency plot for the mounted with the The time now is The advantage I see to having two 10s for the mid packs is that when the room 24461 full, the bottom driver will be at about shoulder level which should cover the dance floor area fairly well and the top driver will be just slightly overhead, for reaching to the back of the room.
Vintage JBL drivers – worth anything?
After 25 years, new diaphragms probably wouldnt hurt either. Since then I’ve read a bit of anecdotal info about extending the range with newer diaphrams like the which is what I did – without realizing what I was doingbut nothing concrete on what HF can be achieved with the alnico magnets in the compared to using a or driver.
I’d like to think I’m getting better performance from the horns with the diaphrams, but maybe not. Thats still high enough to not stress the HF driver in PA use but takes better advantage of the horns’ abilities. With drivers on them I always found myself giving them 2416 very similar to a CD horn in order for them to sound nice.
Thats why the low-mid is set a little high. You might want to look at what JBL have been doing lately with pro boxes.

Around 4 or 5 jhl ago, the club went through an extensive renovation and the JBL cabs were decommissioned, replaced with a pair of SRX cabs over 6x Martin low frequency bins.
It is the case that some of that old gear can be made to sound very very good indeed. When you ship, package VERY carefully and securely. I searched through all the comments I could find on this site about the and it seems like the majority of folks think the was a bit of a dog, although there are some 246 wood horns that have copied the shape.
Some damping material in the cavity above and below the front lip is the cure.

I have 4 of the drivers. Just need a slot above 10K to fill in the top. I tried it on a K horn.
