View Full Version : LE15B driver and L200 (Not L200L) -- Thiele / Small Parameters

01-27-2011, 03:14 PM

I want to know "Thiele / Small Parameters" of JBL LE15B driver.

And more, if somebody tell me about drawing of L200 Enclosure, so I need it's details of capacity/volume and Bass-Reflex system.

Before studio monitor 4425's cross-over were 1,200 Hz, it was no good for LE15B woofer I'm thinking.
Now I'm planning 500 Hz smith horn (Cut-off). X-over is 500 Hz.
Maybe horn is too bigger, but maybe sound is smooth.
Driver is LE85.

If you knows about above, tell me ASAP.

Very best regards,

Hello Moto

If you are referring to the LE-15 with a pleated surround, the 2216 used in the 4325 monitor, then you may be out of luck. The 2216 driver is not listed in the T/S tables. It looks like they never published them for that driver.

Here (http://www.audioheritage.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?24177-1975-Catalog&p=242918&viewfull=1#post242918) you will find some info about the LE15B/2216 (thanks to Rob!). I attached the relevant part to this post. That is not T/S but this is all that was available at that time.
You need to add 49dB to the sensitivity figures to get the 1w/1m value. (so that is 96dB for the 2216).

The L200 cabs are 140L I believe. Zilch must know that, as well as the tuning frequency, as he played with them quite extensively.

500Hz seems quite low for a smith horn (if not bigger than a 2397), especially with a LE85.
800Hz would be better
