View Full Version : Differences 2225 vs 2226?

09-12-2008, 07:38 AM
I have a couple sets of each and the differences appear to be that (1) the 2225 has a heavier stiffer cone and (2) the 2225 has a single vent - not the 3 air cooling vents.

Are there any other structural design differences between the two drivers?

This document explains the exact differences between the speakers you mention: http://www.jblpro.com/pub/technote/tn_v1n18.pdf

2226H is newer/better, but read why.

Edit: I guess if you're wanting to use a 2225 as a source for a 2235, "newer/better" is subjective... 'good point...

One great difference (to me, anyway)is that the 2225H has the exact same motor as 2235H, and a recone ( with 2235H cone of course ) gives you essentially factory fresh 2235H.. If you may ever have use of that driver, that flexibility may be found useful. If not I guess it depends on intended use, and if you need the extra power handling. Otherwise I would think they are basically designed similarly, the 2226H being the more modern "model" as I understand it anyway.
