The 2225 uses a different (older) frame/magnet assembly than the 2226. I believe the 2226 was engineered to be a drop-in replacement for the 2225 so they have similar behavior....except the 2226 has...

Yes, you need two resistors, not one. Remember, the key to the adjustable l-pad is that the rest of the circuit sees an 8 ohm resistance no matter where you adjust the knob. This explains is much...
