    LE-14h-3 and 2217

    Do these drivers have the same frame?? Looks like it.

    close but no cigar

    No

    The 2217H's frame has thicker metal where the mounting holes are and are bullnosed ( rounded off ). And if I remember right, the frame depth is a little different but I don't have a 2217 around to compare at the moment.

    The Nd version ( 1400PRO ) has *two* mounting holes on each corner.

    What about the hole diameter?? I am going to be cutting some wood and the clearance on the frame is quite tight. Don't want to screw it up. Heres a shot of the LE-14H-3. Look's like how you describe the other driver?? Is that what you meant??

    Thanks Rob

    I think the LE14H-3 had a .280 top plate while the 2217 had a .320 top plate.
    I think I remember the LE14H-3 core being unique.
    I could be wrong.

    Use two framing squares as a large calipers and measure the cutout. The Jasper Jig does 16th inch increments if I'm not mistaken.

    THWANK

    I stand corrected - I was comparing the frame to the -1 and -2's which have traveled thru the shop on occasion. The -3 does look identical to the 2217.

    And you might want to use aluminum framing squares...the steel ones might be a little hard to control near the magnet..

    I made a special cutout jig for the older 14's and if I remember the 2217 was larger but that might be because of the wrinkle paint?
