Looks like those baskets have been reconed at least once already......that cone doesn't look like a e-155 or even a JBL for that matter....excellent candidates I would say for your 2245 project.
Good luck

BTW....roll the rubber ring back and make sure the magnets aren't cracked....that can be bad!

Hi

No i think they have been reconed two times.
The other one has a aluminium-cone alá electrical
bass guitarr subwoofer.

neriks has two 2245 ready for reconing, but he will
whait on wome other projects @ home :D

The pic on Neriks 2242 upp on this page, is an old
one, perhaps when he mounted the 2242 in the boxes.

Nothing wrong or so

Giskard,

As Niklas Nord already has mentioned the two 2245H's I have in my possession still waits to reconed. I have removed the old cones and cleaned up the magnet assembly. Unfortunately JBL recone kits are rather expensive here in Sweden :( My economy is a bit strained at the moment and with a newborn child me and my wife have other more important things we need than new recone kits for my 2245H's ;) ...

the JBL 2245H . .. . . .
