Hey Josh,

Just saw this post. Are they really nice shape and are they the plastic ones- the new style 8330a? Any pictures?

Thanks,

Robert

That would be a NO they are in ok shape and function but pristine cosmetically they are not and they are wood.

I am curious if some JBL 2506 stands for 2360 horns are still available. I already have the horns and throat adapters ;-)

I've been meaning to PM Erich about this as well; perhaps he'll see it here. smile.gif

2360 horns rarely find a good home and often aim to the dump. I wonder what people do with throat adapters and bases. Those horns are too big for home, and too old for theaters. Is the 2360 one of JBL's most unloved horn? smile.gif How come despite its size, it doesn't go below 500Hz? cool.gif

It does and can but I think the technicals about it's "limit" being ~500hz are moreso based upon the capability of the compression driver and it handling those lower frequencies at commercial output levels.

The bases that I had were wooden and they got pitched. I may have kept a couple, but I'd have to double check.

I have all the throat adapters.

There was an audio link that showed someone cutting about 8" off the outer portion of those big horns, but I'm not sure where it is.

Hmmm... Seeing that eBay has no stands offered, and that anyway those are quite heavy to ship, I will produce a small batch of JBL 2506C stands made from aluminum to cut on shipping costs (1/3 the weight). I need some made for myself, anyway. Making a pair of 5 pairs will be the same work.

As I could not source BL 2506 stands anywhere, I just had five sets made. My company designs racecar parts, so stands was a pretty quick job. They are laser cut from aluminum and lighter than the original stands (cheaper to ship too). They should be bolted to a piece of plywood for improved rearward stability even though the pictures shows they got tested with rubber feet. I have 4 extra sets available.

I bolted the stands to a piece of 1/2" thick Russian Birch plywood with countersunk bolts from the bottom up. It's now very stable and stiff. enough.

8 brand new JBL 2506C repro stands available - And now, let's stop trashing those precious JBL 2360. They look good and sound great . ;-)

Hey guys,

I'm a new member here, located in Denton, Tx (Just north of Dallas)

I know this is an old thread, but I recently acquired the sound equipment from a cinema and have some JBL & Altec gear available.

Here's what I have:

(8) JBL 2360 w/4445H CD (includes stand)
(1) JBL 2360 w/2446HPL CD (includes stand)
And dozens of 8330's (wood, like OP's). They are pretty dirty, and kind of dinged up, but may clean up OK. I can also part them out as suggested earlier in the thread. I'll literally do $25obo each.

I also have some 2035 drivers, probably over a dozen total, but I'm still going through everything. Most are in good condition, but at least a few have damage (hole in dust cap, one has a hole in its surround). Found at least one 2226HPL, and will update when I get the other three boxes apart.

A few JBL subs - can update specifics next time I have my eyes on them

Altec Gear:
(6) 1005B Multicell Horns
(6) 288-16mhz Drivers
(some of these include Altec mounting brackets)
(3) A7 Boxes
(2) 416-8B
(1) 515E, damaged (has two small holes in accordion surround)

Since I'm a new member, I'm not sure if I should post pricing here, but I'll make a fair deal on this gear. Let me know if there is any interest and we can talk specifics, exchange pics, etc.

If you're local, I'll make one heck of a deal on the JBL horns and A7 cabinets!

I am sure there are a few would love to buy the surrounds. Not sure on the rest but money talks so who knows.

Thanks guys! I assumed I couldn't do that since I am a new member, but I will give it a shot. Also, I wasn't aware that I couldn't respond to PM's. If you have PM'ed me, please send your contact info. @Patzig .

I appreciate the help in helping me give this gear a good home!

Just keep chatting about your products here. And look at other threads and add some input. Then you will have enough posts that you can respond. BUT you also wont look like a brand new person just trying to sell products. Other wise people might say they want to buy but dont want to actually let go of their money to a new person.

Yeah, and I hate to be that guy! I'm actually a longtime poster on a theatrical lighting forum (which is really my specialty) and two things annoy me to no end. One is the guy who comes in and asks a question. Fair enough, right? Everyone jumps in and gives some truly thoughtful answers. Except the original poster is never to be seen again! Sure it's great adding more searchable content to the community, but I don't like that feeling of being 'used' by non contributors who can't be bothered to participate or even say thanks.

The other one is the guy who arrives to either sell things or maybe ask for opinions on something he wants to buy. Either way, they often become a one-post wonder.

Hopefully I can find ways to contribute - although I will say that I don't know nearly as much about audio as I do about lighting. I am working with a local community theatre in getting their sound system back up to par, so don't be surprised if I come in with questions about that. I know that this community is more home/enthusiast oriented, but a lot of the lines cross!

While I'm here, I should also make a correction. In my original post, I stated that I had 2360 horns with 4445H drivers. I misspoke - they are 2445H's.

Why did they get rid of the 8330's?

I think they are great speakers for the price. Sure there might be something else but electronics would probably be better than new speakers.

That's a good question. Apparently the order came down from corporate to "get rid" of the equipment due to the upgrades. Of the several I have tested, they all work, they're just a little banged up (likely due to the construction workers handling them rough). Mostly just scratches on the sides, some holes/tears in the cloth grill, etc. They also have some screw holes in the sides; I guess the original installers couldn't be bothered to mount them correctly.

I've been testing them with music and found them to sound a little "muted" in the high end - not sure if this is normal, but it's consistent with all of them (so far) and all the components seem to be working. I assume it's just the way the crossovers are. I also found a couple of 8340's in the pile, but the one I inspected had a completely deteriorated cone surround.

I'm mixed up in this because I am involved with a local performing arts community theatre. The movie theater manager contacted me to donate as many as possible to the theatre, so they're getting the two subwoofers and a handful of QSC 1020 surrounds. The rest are mine to do what I want with, so I'm hoping to get them all in to the hands of people who can use them while also hopefully making enough money to cover the storage costs and my time in removing/hauling them around.

From what I remember last time a large sale of similar items came up, some bought as is and others just bought the components only minus enclosure. Then just made their own cabinets. So that may be an option so I wouldnt worry too much about scratches on exteriors unless trying to maximise profit.

Definitely not too worried about how much I get for them. On the plus side, I have a lot of the wall-mount brackets as well.

I took a few QSC 1020's for myself. Man, those things sound great.
