    And even if they did... the foam has a limited shelf life. You always want fresh recone kits when dealing with foam surrounds.

    The best thing to do is keep abreast of what's going on at JBL. They...

    It is also very, very discontinued and unlike JBL they are not offering recone kits for discontinued product. :(

    I'd stick with the 2235. At least for now JBL is still supporting it.

    Thanks for the info... pretty interesting.

    Funny how there are many guys out there who are certain that they "know" what it takes to "fix" these drivers from JBL, TAD, Altec etc. :bs:

    :yes:

    At that point you are designing an entirely new system. Unless you are prepared to go the whole way, I'd say stay with what is working for you.

    It is dirty, gooey, and I wouldn't want a camera near it.

    Basically, I took an original and made a silicone mold of it using about $2K of industrial silicone, and then I take a urethane resin and...

    Hell if I know... that is just what the literature says and that the resulting moving mass is around a gram. Pretty amazing for a 4" diameter diaphragm.

    I think that is responsible for the amazing...

    It is really hard to do since you never listen to just a compression driver. The TD-4003 is a 1.5" exit driver and the TD-4001 is a 2" exit, so they won't mount on the same horns without adapters....

    Not exactly true. The sensitivity does increase with added woofers. Take a look at the 4350 vs. the 4333. 95.5dB vs. 93dB. Here you have identical woofers, but you gain a bit of sensitivity due to...

    Bigger than a 4345. :rotfl:

    It may be very nice, but I would go with TAD's own version. It has a more sophisticated horn. The JK speaker uses a simple plywood radial horn. Interestingly the JK...

    :yes:

    I have never A/B'd them, but through listening to both of them in various systems, I think I'd stick with the 2235H.
