    2226H with 2425J

    I have a pair of both drivers layin around and would like to mate them together in one encloser. I have been runing them bi amplified using a DBX drive rack. My question is though I cant seem to find a passive crossover made for the 8 ohm 2226 and the 16 ohm 2425 horn. Could some modifications be made to a crossover that is a jbl model are could one be made from scratch. I am very good with schematics and soldering. Or am I just not looking hard enough. I would think that in some point in time they put a 16 ohm horn with a 8 ohm woofer. I beleave that the horns are from the cabiret series.

    Here's a readable version:

    It matters what horn you're using, as well....

    There's your start, then.

    I have that running here, but I've never measured the response.

    Party speakers. They'll play stupid loud:

    Yep, thats the idea. 2 2240H's will be covering the low end. THanks for the help!

    Source for Parts

    Hi Clubman
    Normally, you can get all the parts you will need from a source like www.PartsExpress.com.
    But, in this case Parts Express does not carry the 0.75mH coils that you will need for your project.
    As it turns out, Madisound carrys some solon 0.75mH 14ga air cores that should do the trick.
    Here is the Link: www.madisound.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=356_20_31

    Good luck with your project.

    D'Oh,
    I forgot that the 0.75mH coil is on the High Frequency Shunt leg of the cross over.
    So, you really don't need a ultra-low DCR coil.
    PartsExpress has a 15 ga or even a 18ga air coil, which would work in your project.

    Looking at the spec sheet Zilch supplied, it looks like the 140 woofer. Not the 2226.

    In the pic, you can see I've swapped in 2226H for the E140s.

    The woofers run full range. I guess we could do a more comprehensive analysis and design a better crossover for either combination, but the fundamental purpose is not high fidelity here, I don't believe....

    Not lookin for super high fidelity but I dont want it sound like crap in the other hand. I am not sure that runing the 2226H full range is a good idea. I was thinking of crossing over around 1.2k as that is the maximum recomended cross point on the specs for the 2226H And would allow the horn to handle more power. I will be playing these loud. Oh they will be powered with a crown XS900

    Show me how it could be worse than running E140 full range.

    Though I can't quite read it, I believe it says 4691B is 1.6 kHz. Not a big deal to just try it, since there's only two components and an L-Pad involved.

    If Johnaec'll help me, maybe I'll haul one into ZilchLab and measure it....

    Isn't the E140 designed to run full range....hints its use for a musical instrument loudspeaker....like bass guitar.

    The JBL network you're looking for is 3110A from 4671A....2425J & 2226H.

    The 4691B crossover is listed as 1.6KHz on the spec sheet, but that's more of the acoustic response than the electrical.

    The E140 runs full range....the 4691B is simply a hi pass for the 2425J. The E140 starts to roll off at about 2500Hz due to it's copper voice coil...and...it's sensitivity is 100dB....it screams and it's utilitarian.

    The 4691B RARELY ever blew 2425 diaphragms because the hi pass is so high it's barley breathing hard at all.

    3110A is 800 Hz. 3120A would be 1.2 kHz. Both use tapped inductors.

    [I'm workin' on it.... ]

    SR4725 used 1.1 kHz, and tamed the HF with a parallel tank filter. It's 2425H, tho:

    http://www.jblproservice.com/pdf/SR-Series/SR4725.pdf

    SR4725X retained 1.1 kHz, lost the tank, and used 3-Pole plus Zobel on the HF:

    http://www.jblproservice.com/pdf/SR-...es/SR4725X.pdf

    Here's 2226H FR; it's 97 dB. I'm not finding E140 anywhere. :dont-know

    Well I decided just to use the crossover from the SR4725X It matches up with the woofer and has speakons on it. I figured by the time I made a pcb and put it all together and got speakon jacks I could have just bought one. I am hoping that the horn being 16ohm doesnt cause a problem...if so later on down the road I could swap diaphrams for a 8 ohm. I wouldnt think it would throw the xover freq. off that much....if anything I would think it just wouldnt run as hot wich could be a good thing.

    Now as for the box....square or trapazod. I noticed all the SR line is mostly trapazod, is this for a reason or just looks, or that you can use all of them as a stage wedge in a pinch.
