Hi.

I have a pair of JBL LE15H drivers with rotten surounds, and the spiders have fallen down due to the diaphragm weight.

The cones are a bit wrinkled and I think it would be best to recone them.
But are these drivers worth it ? I canīt find that much info on the net.

How are they compared to 2225H drivers, and what cabinet should they be used in ?

http://www.simplyspeakers.com has recone kits for the LE15, but Iīm not sure itīs for the LE15H, as I read somewhere it should have a half roll foam surround.

Thx in advance.

If you feel around $400 US for JBl kits is worth it,Me good pair of door stops.

2225 is not an extended-bass woofer.

LE15H is....

2225 is not an extended-bass woofer.
LE15H is....Rather abbreviated, but true...

The LE15H is better for deep bass and is rather rare and more valuable than the 2225... the 2225 was generally used as a PA woofer, has a slightly greater sensitivity and rather limited deep bass capabilities.

You can compare JBL's recommended cabinet volumes and tunings here:

You should compare enclosure 6 and 8.
