    Yup. Your two ears.

    God gave you the best measuring equipment known to man - and the ONLY two that really count.

    And, the brain that they are connected to...:p

    Yeah- what Grumpy said...

    Grumpy, you are 100% correct: charge-coupled capacitors reduce the crossover circuit distortion AND push the behavior anomalies of the capacitors to a level equating to a peak of 2 1/2 to 20 watts...

  5. Glued-on wedges are correct, except on very early version.

    Glued-on wedges is the factory method of attachment. :yes: The exploded diagram doesn't reveal this detail, as the 2405 horn is an assembled part.
    The outer horn is actually an 075/2402 machined...

    I feel your pain... however, considering their age, the nickel plating hasn't done too poorly, has it?

    I'd guess it is tin plated instead of nickel but I :dont-know:

    Contact cleanup tips & tricks

    On low-voltage contact points, oxidation can produce a "diode effect" that can make for a nasty sound quality due to the fact that the oxidized surface is resistant to current flow below a certain...

    Vintage Crest amps too!

    Crest Audio was started by former BGW employees, and a brought a lot of the same thinking into their amp designs, like their 'overbuilt' power supplies.

    Your suggestions really apply to all cable...

    Thanks Mitch.

    I posted this thread 4 years ago while helping a customer with butchered-up SRX715's restore them to order. At the time he elected to save $200 with used 2432H instead of used 2431H....
  14. no comparison... to 2435H

    2435H is a whole other animal... no comparison there.

    Certainly no comparison to ANY 2" drivers...
  15. 2432H data, or comparisons to other JBL 3" or 4" compression drivers?

    Anybody?

    Don wanted to know cone weight, etc. to compare to recone parts from McKenzie et.al.

  17. 2245H cone assy weight/mms spec

    Don, your post prompted me to pull out my salvaged 2245 cone assemblies to weigh them. All three have the rotted foam removed, but the dust cap, tinsel leads, and spiders are intact but stretched...
  18. Greater moving mass could be the culprit

    It seems to me that a higher mms figure, such as what a copper coil substituted for the aluminum coil would undoubtedly contribute, would result in a higher mechanical resonance... which in turn...

    I still have one of the 5234A's in line to my subwoofer, with an 80Hz crossover card to cut the rest out. The 6dB peaking EQ/subsonic filter is hard to do without once you use it. They can be...

    One step below VGC 2206/2226/2241

    Those are either MR835 (2118H mid, 2416H HF) or MR935 (M209-8 mid, 2418H HF and "Sonic Guard" light-bulb power limiters for HF ckt)
    Networks are different, matched to the drivers they have.

  24. Nice little score!

    Do those have the AlNiCo magnet woofer in them? If so, be careful powering them with that 6290. Get a little too happy with the levels and you'll start demagging the AlniCo.

    Speaking of 6290, I...
