Great pickup Erich. I was confused on your last post. I thought you were saying the prices had gone up.

If we are still talking about the original prices for the 2242Hs and 2226Js, I'm still in for 4 of the 2242H 18" drivers and 6 of the 2226J 15" drivers (3 cabs). I can take the whole cab or individual drivers. I can also pick them up from you in Cinci.

Do we know if the 15's are the 8 or 16ohm version as of yet?

Wait a minute, I may be confused. Saw someone talking about surround "drivers and parts" and someone else talking about 8330 cutsheets. Are the surrounds complete with cabs and everything, or are we talking about only drivers and crossovers?

The previous post may contain spoilers, which will make the post less aerodynamic and increase handling at high speeds.

Surrounds are complete. Erich is nice enough to ship them complete or as parts.

"Do we know if the 15's are the 8 or 16ohm version as of yet?"

the J series is 16 ohms, so the 15's 2226J are 16 ohm.
the H series is 8 ohms, so the 18's 2242H are 8 ohm.
i'm not sure what the 18's with the "roll surround" are.

Earlier it was stated that the 15" cabs were the 4648-8.
According to JBL these should be the 2226h which are the 8 ohm speakers.
Just trying to make sure as I want to run 1 each of these in a tower speaker. 16ohm would be sucky but still possible.

i don't think that is right. the 4648a cab has dual 2226h drivers is 4 ohm net (two 8 ohm drivers in parallel) the 4648a-8 cab has dual 2226j drivers and is 8 ohm net (two 16 ohm drivers in parallel).

http://www.jblpro.com/pub/cinema/4648a.pdf

then again, he can just read the label or measure one. :-)

Quote from JBL spec sheet:

The 4648A 4 ohm system uses two
2226H 380 mm (15 in) patented
Vented Gap Cooling transducers.....

....
.....

Model 4648A-8 is the 8 ohm version
of this system, incorporating two
2226J transducers
, used with
models 4675B-2 and 4675B-8LF high
frequency systems.....

The 4648-8 should be the one with dual 'j' models to end up with the 8ohm nominal. I have three of these.

I've made 2 trips to my shop. All 18" drivers are at my house. I also got 2 of the 15's.

They are the 2226J models as was expected earlier. The first ones I took out looked perfect.

More later, I'm making another trip. Luckily the shop is very close.....just a few minutes.




Ya know, it seems the cabinets are very heavy. Imagine that.
For the past 3 months I've had a bad case of tennis elbow in both arms, (torn tendons at the elbows). PassingInterest told me about a special arm band that has helped, but it's not gone yet. Plus, I only have one arm band because if I wore 2 at the same time I might look a little strange! So I'm a little slower than normal.

Thanks Erich.

That puts an end to that speculation.

I'm still in although you jokers are know going to have to help me configure a set of tower speakers.

You should wear 2 arm bands cause that extra weight on 1 side may make you funny.

UH OH, he's moving them in!

I am afraid he will be tempted to try an 11.4 system with the 30" horns running L/R, the 20" horns running C and L/R Wides, all on top of 5 4648 dual 15's. Throw another pair 20" horns and 4648's for Side surround's. Fill out the Surround back's and front High's with some 8330's, and last but not least 4 4645c's filling in the bass.

Then he won't want to part with anything but 8330's


I'll tell you, if I had all that sitting at my place I would be mighty tempted.

"I'll tell you, if I had all that sitting at my place I would be mighty tempted."

it would be hard not to wire them all up, so to hear the dynamics of a system that is somewhere around 110db sensitive in the bass before any room gain. with some room gain, he could be above reference with one watt! :-)

Listen. It's All Good.

Hahaha. Above reference with a few T-Amps. Crazy tempting. Not the T-Amp part, but the hooking up a ridiculous 7.whatever setup. Ahh, if only my theater room was bigger than approx. 20x13x8.

I should tell you guys a story about some Unisound brand speakers from last year. They were made popular over on the PE forum and something crazy happened....but I'll save that for later.

I've got one more trip to make down to the shop, then I'll have all the woofers and subwoofers here. This might put it in the running for the "Epic Thread of the Year" award!

Guys, I have photos..... Most of them look good




Back:




On the back it says "do not block vents". But for whatever reason, every single one has a very thin piece of plastic covering each vent. Well, it's 1 layer of plastic covering the entire magnet, but it is covering the vent holes. Maybe it's perforated, but it's very thin and won't let any dust of dirt in the vents. You can't peel it off because it's under the label. Maybe you're suppose to poke a hole it in? I don't know.

Your wife must hate you right now. LOL!
That's a lot of work to take them all out of there.
We all owe you a lot here.

What gave you the idea of that foot picture?
There was a guy over at htguide(CJD) who did that and then a whole bunch of us followed suit after building our own speakers.

If you don't mind can you let me know how many of the smaller 1.5" cd you have?

Get some rest now eh!

Ha, JBL carpet! Not bad.


I've seen pictures before where people put their feet up after the hard day of DIY projects. That's why I called it "the common DIY photo". Yes, those socks are the best socks I've had. I'm kind of a sock freak and when I found those and their crew cut siblings, I purchased gobs of them.....sort of like how I did with the JBL's.


Not married yet, it's coming soon though. Oddly enough I was selling off some of my other audio gear to "clean house" before I get married........and now look at the darn living room! I just wanted to get them to my house so I could box them up here. I didn't know where else to put them, so line 'em up!


My only major regret is that I forgot to put my Makita impact driver in the photos! That stinks! I didn't charge the battery before going to the shop, but it took out all the screws and was begging for more.
