View Full Version : Recovered from trash - 6x 2425's

A local theater used for the filming of a movie had to "move out" all of their gear so that production could take place. When they moved back in, a dumpster was set up and my buddy was there, with open arms.

Some things landed were six 2425's, four of which are on horns - two short, two long, mouth size a rectangular 10 x 20 approx. The drivers are mounted with 3 bolt to 4 bolt adapters about 5" long.

Also a pair of 2404's on the cheeky horns....

He wants nothing to do with them, and 5 / 6 test OK with HPF pink noise. I told him I'd help sell them off, but not right away...I want to think about this for a bit!

What good is the 2425? I still have the 4628 Cabaret's, and if they can be incorporated in a DIY, I might buy a pair from him.

Or some other application.....:blink:

The 2425 is good for nothing except the HF for 4430, 4435, 4691 and every other JBL PROFESSIONAL (emphasize PROFESSIONAL) system that has used a 1" compression driver for the last 25 years....I'm currently taking donations for such trash...PM me for my address

I think the 2118 in the 4628 comes in at 800Hz. Can I insert the 2425 and keep the 2404 as UHF to try them out for a while? Add an l-pad?

Well...you could try it but I wouldn't mess with the 4628B....sounds great as it is. I'd just build something else and leave the 4628B alone. Maybe build yourself a 4430/35 clone:bouncy:

Yeah, don't mess with the 4628B's. It's the 2118's that give them their mellow midrange.

I might be interested in the 2404's. I always love cheeky things!
Thanks for the reply.
