What do you guys recommend!

I want to run the 2234H from 50hz to 280hz,
perhaps in an sealed enclousure, or in an bassreflex

fast hifi performance :p

the smaller box the better, but not if it has an impact
on sound . . . . :rolleyes:

It has been stated on this Forum in previous discussions that
" the JBL 2234 likes 3.15 cubic feet tuned to 37Hz for an F3 ~50Hz."
If you use a smaller enclosure or a sealed cabinet you will not get optimum performance from the 2234 driver.
I run 2234s in my 4320 and 4333 studio monitors because I cross them at 800Hz and was concerned that the lower mids would suffer if I included the mass rings of the 2231s originally supplied with these monitors. I really like the sound of the 2234s and, eventhough they are working in cabinets that were designed for 2231s w/ mass rings, I find the low end to be very satisfying. I even tried to adjust the port lengths to compensate for the loss of mass rings, but after extensive listening, I returned the ports to the original JBL specs and like the results very much.
