It is the case that some of that old gear can be made to sound very very good indeed. I have a pair that are mounted to horns in custom HF cabs. I’m not entirely sure that 2 x 10 is the way to go here. Before installing them in the club, we retrofitted the horn drivers with diaphragms, which definitely extended the high frequency extension. The 15s were definitely reconed, I had it done in the early 90s by a qualified tech.

Lots of great 2416 and ideas I wouldn’t The phragms are not a good choice for extended HF. Thats why the low-mid is set a little high.

Without re-hashing an old topic, have any of the aftermarket mfgs notably stepped up their game in the past 5 years?

With drivers on them I always found myself giving them eq very similar to a CD horn in order for them to sound nice.

Posted April 9, However, its jgl in the past week or so that I realized that for all these years I’ve been running the ‘s a lot higher then they were originally intended, and I’d hate to build a new set of cabs, only to move the weak spot from the mids to the highs – so I’m hoping that there is someone on this forum who has used s with newer diaphrams and can confirm that this will work or not One advantage to going with a horn like the is that its physically not as wide jgl the ‘s – so I could make jbo mid-high boxes a little narrower.

My Rane does have EQ setting for CD horns, but I’d have to pull it and open the case to change it, which would be mbl PIA, so hopefully its not really necessary for the s. These days I still take the PA on the road now and then, and occasionally run it hard – but mostly it stays in my basement as a practice PA, in-house PA for parties, and oversized stereo system. Maybe come down lower with that changeover.

IIRC, the spec sheet for the back page has the frequency plot for the mounted with the I probably have diagphrams for this one in stock and it MIGHT also be able to use a or aluminum diaphgram but I am not sure. I may see if I can find a pair of 2nd hand clones or maybe borrow a pair of loaded s.

I spent some time tweaking it when I front loaded my bass cabs 20 years ago – although at the time, my main priority was SPL. That spec sheet is partly what got me concerned in the first place, because the HF response on the seems to roll off a lot faster than the I’ve never had a problem with the HF output and my RTA says they are fine up to 20K – but that is with pink noise, which doesnt tell me if the output is colored or distorted.

Now they have ‘s with Radian diaphragms, which handle a bit more power than the ‘s with their original diaphragm’s but jvl very similar. ibl

Posted April 10, I’ve also used these horns originally with drivers. Hello – I have a question about extending the upper range of some drivers.

Others will tell you more re the polar charactristics of that hornit will tend to beam somewhat at higher frequencies and some of the more modern horns will do a better job. These are definitely near-field monitors. These were originally installed as a center cluster in a roller arena here around or so.

Extra Tabs by vBulletin Hispano. I never checked the specs on the until about a week ago and was surprised to find that they were only rated to about 12K with the original phenolics. However the response curves were done with a driver, which could be responsible for much of the rolloff because it quits at 15K. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. The A’s that you have may be recones, I don’t remember them doping the cones that early but it is possible.

I’m not sure JBL made a cab spec’ed with these exact components, or if they did, I can’t find it.
