    JBL / Gauss / Cetec Information

    Does anyone have some information on the JBL Gauss co-axial's? I'm pretty sure that JBL had aquired Gauss at some point, and that the company had a line of co-axial monitors, but information is elusive, and actual drivers are near impossible to come by. Thanks for ANY comments on this rare breed.

    I'm no athority by any means, but I understand that the Urei monitors used Altec originally, then switched to JBL. JBL eventually aquired Urei. It was EV that aquired Gauss a few years ago and then ended the Gauss line.

    You mean these guys here?? That is not an Altec woofer and the compression driver looks like a 2425 with no tire.

    The reference chart just gives you revision numbers and the coaxes so it's not much help.

    If anyone cares...

    Those co-axials are PAS (Professional Audio Systems) CXL-1580 (3" VC)...OEM'ed for UREI with a JBL 2425 driver.

    I changed my answer. It's definitely a CXL-1580

    Why? Because the CXL-1580 is for a 1" exit compression driver. The CX-2580 has a 4" voice coil and is for a 2" exit compression driver.


    The next co-ax for the UREI 813C was the 801C which was a JBL E145 modified into a co-ax. I believe Rob has one or two of those. I seen pitchers.


    Too bad the seller doesn't really know what it is...although PAS woofers are very much like Altec....as well as being very underrated.

    Great stuff made right here in SoCal.

    Thanks Edge

    That's one mystery solved. I was wondering what woofers those were. Edge which driver would that be in the matrix, if it's in there at all??? Maybe we can add the driver photo's to the Photo Gallery so we have them there and they won't get "lost" with the thread over time??

    Unfortunately, it looks like the PAS stuff is no longer going to be made in the USA. We regularly are in contact with PAS (reconing center), and in one of our recent conversations, we found out that PAS has been bought out by a far-Eastern company... and that factory recone kits for the classic PAS drivers will NO LONGER be available.

    We've been scrambling to find appropriate third-party parts to replace these factory kits for the PAS drivers... fortunately, we've been able to sub in some other readily-available parts and keep 'em going up to very near original spec...


    Regards,
    Gordon.

    Thanks for sharing these Gauss beauties... I rotated this one for a better view.

    I wonder if there is a missing lens or something in front of the mid horn. Does anyone have more info on these?

    BTW: Welcome aboard... and as Heather pointed out, it wouldn't be a bad idea to also start a new thread in the Market Place area announcing their sale.

    Damn... that's too bad. Don has been away for quite a spell... hopefully when he returns this and other mysteries will be cleared up.

    They do look like serious pieces of gear. I would love to audition them.

    They look like Gauss's version of JBL 4343s!

    mysterious speakers

    Bonjour à tous !
    J'ai trouvé une paire de nouveaux haut-parleurs GAUSS lors d'une recherche dans le stock de l'ancien importateur de la marque en France. Ils portent le code 3285 et ressemblent beaucoup au Gauss 3288, mais ont un cornet de 1 "qui est différent!
    Je n’ai trouvé aucune information à leur sujet ... et pourtant je suis bien documenté ... merci pour votre aide; je pense qu’ils sont très rares, si quelqu'un à une information ???
