I found this modified JBL 2226 driver with a google search. Here are the T/S parameters. I want to know if I can build one by starting with a standard 2226H motor. The JBL site lists no replacement parts available and does not even list a recone kit.
HS-136:

Fs = 35 Hz
Xmax= 7.87 mm
Re= 5.0
Qts= 0.38
Qes= 0.4
Qms= 7.7
Vas= 153.5
Mms= 146 grams
Sd= 800 cm2
BL= 20 T/m

The driver was described as a 2226 with a bucking magnet and a heavier cone to allow it to be used as a subwoofer in the Synthesis 2 system. The driver in the cabinet is named the S2S system. Here is a pic link

The 136HS uses the C8R136 cone kit.
Current MSRP for the kit is ~$150.
Current MSRP for the 136HS (75403) is ~ $307.
It uses aquaplas instead of a mass ring.

Thanks for the part numbers. This driver models well as a subwoofer in a 5.1 cu ft vented box tuned to 25Hz.

I see that JBL makes a 35 gram mass ring. If they made a 50 gram mass ring I could add that and a new dust cap without have to buy a new cone kit. Is such a thing available?

The "50 gram" mass ring is the current 35 gram mass ring. Part number is 51629. It appears that is the only mass ring still available. :(

Assuming the new recone assy weighs the same as the old one, 15 grams of epoxy around the edge of the coil fomer at the cone would do finish the job nicely, no?
