    Hi!

    I don't know if this is interesting or not, but I found this ad at parts express, if anyone is looking for a JBL sub.

    I haven't loaded BBPro on my new computer yet, but I would love to check it out. That looks like quite a sub.

    Dude, that isn't a car sub, that is the 15" driver from the Revel Ultima 15 sub, made by JBL for their Harmon parent company. It looks like a modified 2227 motor, but it has more xmax than any current JBL 15. It would make a great sealed box sub with some equilization.

    Tim,

    Are you sure that is the Revel Ultima sub? I've heard them and they are phenomenal.

    Just installed BBPro and ran the numbers. No wonder those Revel subs sounded so good. The group delay is not as good as the 2235H or 2245H so it will not have quite the transient response, but boy does it have LF extension!

    I am very tempted.....

    One of the cool things about them is that they will go deep in a fairly small enclosure. I just called and they have 400 left. Sorry guys I may just take all of them.

    Here is what it looks like in a 4 cu ft vented box tuned to 25Hz. Please don't buy them all, I need to pick up some overtime.

    It's a very nice VLF transducer Mike. Loads of moving mass, something JBL has seemed to have moved away from these days. I question an SPL rating of 94 dB. I guess it's worth my while to try and get more info on it.

    Talking Compared to other JBLs

    Does anyone have an idea as to how these would compare to say a 2242 or 2226? Would the 2242 be more musical than a woofer that has such a low Fs?

    The driver in question is definitely the original Revel Ultima Sub. I remember the detailed photos of it that used to be on Revel's website. It was pretty much a JBLPro design. I believe that Doug Button was responsible for it.

    Regarding the question on the 2256 sub used in the Vertec, I believe this is the 15" JBL GTI sub (i.e. car sub) with a different cone assembly. I saw a bunch of them sitting on a pallet during my last visit to the Northridge plant. I just assumed they were the GTI subs, since they looked identical. However, on closer inspection, there was a "2256" foilcal on the frame.
