    Greetings -

    If more articulate, solid bass is what you're trying to achieve, I have had luck using larger than normal vent diameters. Up to six inches in some cases. Large vents will reduce the...

    Greetings, again -

    The typical volume gained by adding damping material would be 1.4 times the gross volume of the enclosure. Personally, I use damping material sparingly, as too much will suck...

    Greetings -

    Large ports will provide more articulate low frequency at the point of resonance. In other words, a tight bass. Large meaning, 5-8 inches in diameter depending on the volume of the...

    Hi Barry -

    I stand corrected. I should have explained myself better. However, I'm not all that familiar with the 2234. I conducted a T-S parameter test about ten years ago with one of my 136A's...

    The mass ring serves to increase the total mechanical mass of the cone assembly, thereby lowering the free air resonance ( fs ) of the woofer. By removing the ring you essentially have...

    The rule of thumb is that a high frequency horn, or horn tweeter, will be crossed over approximately one octave above the horn cut-off frequency. Consider the horn mouth perimeter...

    IMHO, no. The dome has a flange on it. I have never seen a JBL dome, either paper or aluminum, to have a flange. Also, the ribs lack definition. The cone and dome are a bit faded in...

    You can remove the cover if you want, but an educated guess tells me doing so will not improve the sound. Doing so could do more harm to the sound than good at low frequencies. With respect to ported...

    Based on the horn mouth dimensions, I think 1.5K would be safe bet. However, the 2414 data sheet suggest a 2.1K crossover frequency. The 2414 published highest frequency response is listed as 20K. It...

    Even if the 130A had an aluminum dome, or the D130 had a paper dome, they are still two different animals. The only commonality between the two is the cone itself.
