Need new foam surround,dustcap,shims and cement to 2245.
I see different possebilities at ebay. But anyone know the quality?
I live i Norway. Maybe some suggestions i europe? or some offer at this forum?

I can confirm that 2245 in 12cuft/20Hz tuning -bridged Crown XTI4000 with +6 db/ Q=2 @20Hz shakes the room!:D

Curious how the low frequency extension is.

Re-cone, not re-foam. Lydrommet in Oslo does this.

I was looking at some 2245 edge foam surround 2 weeks ago, and the price looked cheap at less than £30.00 pounds. I think this was listed on ebay.

Lydrommet has only the whole repair set with cone, as you say.
A bit costy 2900.- nok/ 480 USD to one element. This is 1.5 x the price i gave for one 2245!

Lydrommet actually had a new 2245H! approx 7600.- nok/ 1300 USD. But does JBL still make this element?
The recone set was also genuine JBL they said. Is it also really availeable from JBL these days?
