So the only reason to spend more on the JBL parts would be for the branding?

I have six 2226's so virtually anything is possible. Do I want massive 4435's though? Not really.

One of the Eric's here refoamed 20-40 pairs so he could probably give some insight. I have 2 pairs from him and he did a great job.

Thanks for the advice. The SEOS-12, DNA-360, 2226J combo seems good for my needs.

So the costs would be about

SEOS-12 - $28 x 2
or
SEOS-15 - $60 x 2

DNA-360 - $75 x2

I've yet to see my ep2500 clip lights flash and I've measured peaks of 120db on my rat shack analog. That's maybe 125db actual since the accuracy is low in the bottom range.

Check the drivers with a battery. Both drivers should move inward or outward depending on the terminal you touch. If one driver moves inward and the other outward, they will nullify each other.
