View Full Version : 2426J to H conversion

Is the only difference between the 2426H and J version the diaphragm and coil ? In other words, can I convert a J to an H by simply fitting the correct diaphragm ?

Thanks,

Pete

Yes indeed. It is that simple.

And apparently they measure the same too.

Some further illumination (not intended as a correction, per se):

a 2426J with an H diaphragm will measure as a 2426H (impedance and amplitude vs. frequency)
as it it now a 2426H in all respects other than the sticker/foilcal/white paint on back cover.

A 2426J will not measure the same as a 2426H or a 2426J with an H diaphragm.

I am very ver confused now...

He just meant that a 2426J with a 2426H diaphragm will measure the same as a 2426H - changing the diaphragms makes them essentially the same drivers.

But, 2426J with a 2426H diaphragm WON'T measure the same as a 2426J with a 2426J diaphragm.

So in other words, the impedance (G,J or H) is determined by the diaphragm alone. You're good to go.
