There is a pair of 2206's on ebay with some really nice photos of the cones including the rear side. I assume the orange tint on the rear side of the cone is a sign they at least used the same cone as JBL if it isn't the original.
Yes, I know you want the 2226...
Another hint might be a pretty cone in an abused frame.
well seller admitted to them being a recone, and upon looking at pictures, the cones are not the "gray" that the 2226H is supposed to be so they were actually pretty easy to spot. guy was still asking 185 for them reconed, so dont know how good or bad a deal that still is, but I would still rather go full on new drivers if at all possible.
ish, got cornfused If i was scooping those three then I was going to do the 4 pi's if there wasnt an seos build. Optimally I would like to get the 2206's or td 12m's to build an seos build in my old advent boxes This needs to happen sooner than some 4 pi's, as I already have the boxes and am REALLY ready to get something going with them
because jim lansing was building speakers long before there was any standard. we are talking 50-60+ years of heritage here. this isn't a chinese company that came along in the past 10 years and copied a design, but one of the founders of driver technology. there is pretty much an entire website dedicated to the guy's work: http://www.audioheritage.org/ though others have definitely advanced the ball. with that much history, it can be understood how they would be reluctant to diverge from his convention on the speakers most closest to his works.
