    Does anybody know the M32-8, 15"? Recone to 2235H question...

    I have an old JBL M32-8. Is it possible to recone it to a 2235H?

    It looks like a E-130...


    Maybe Giskard knows it?

    Found something

    here I found some infos:

    M32-8

    the reconekit C8RE130 is the reconekit for both speakers (E-130 AND M32-8)

    The E-130 is reconeable to 2235H, so my opinion is, that the M32-8 is also reconeable to a 2235H. Can somebody confirm this?

    I don't know a thing about the M32-8, but the E-130 is not exactly the same as the 2205H, 2225H, 2231H, 2235H cores as the E130/ E140 have a slightly larger magnet and greater flux density. This will reduce deep bass output and increase upper bass/low mid slightly. The audible differences will probably be very subtle.

    Hi Mr. Widget

    I have both here, a 2225H and a E-130, but visually the magnet looks like the same. The Weight of the magnet is in both Versions 8,5kg (18 5/8 lb).

    But you are right, the flux densitiy is 1,35 T for the E-130 and 1,2 T for the 2225H/2235H.

    I`m a little bit confused about the connection of the flux density and fs. We have messured out an old Alnico K-130 reconed to 2235H.

    We stated that fs shifted itself approx. 5 cycles per second upward in the comparison to the original 2235H Alnico. The reason for it is the leaving magnetism with Alnico magnets. Accordingly a higher Tesla value would have to mean a frequency shift downward???

    Can you explain, why a higher Tesla reduce the deep bass? I I am something confused...

    Why don't you grab your phone and ask your old friend?

    E Series magnet is 22,23mm thick
    22xx series magnet is 19,05mm thick

    Measure it.

    We will meet this week for a reconing session anyway (I hope)

    Hi Ralf and Guido,

    I have also two de-coned E130 (Alnicos) slowly gettin dusty and think about to recone them to 2235.
    The JBL fit list tells me that this works.
    where do you buy your 2235 cones?

    Essentially as you increase the magnet strength it is a similar effect to lowering the mass of the cone. The associated TS parameters will shift accordingly. I would assume the K-130 with an alnico magnet would measure and sound closer to the E-130 than it would to the 2235 if we were comparing all three with the same cone kit in them.

    Guido is correct in that the E-130 and E-140 are slightly deeper than the 22XX 2205H, 2225H, 2231H and 2235H frames. The 2220H frame however has an even larger magnet and is even deeper than the E-130 and E-140.

    But why we got such messuring results????

    Ok. that`s clear. But why we got a higher fs with older Alnicos??? Where is the failure? We should get a deeper fs, or?

    No that is right, the K130 as well as the E130 should have a slightly higher Fs.

    Tesla of K-130

    Hi Mr. Widget,

    the Tesla value of the K-130 is the same as the 2235H Alnico version (in older 43xx Series) and the same as in 2235H Ferrit version: 1,2 T

    Why I got a higher fs with the same value? The reason we believe is the decrease of the magnetism of alnico materials. I don`t understand the connection...

    Summary:

    1) the same origin Tesla value should result in same fs for all possibilities of combinations

    2) we got a higher fs with older alnico magnets

    3) if we recharge these alnicos, we should get the origin results of fs for 2235H

    4) if we have larger magnets, we get a higher Tesla value

    5) so we should get a deeper fs with higher Tesla values

    6) I know that I know nothing

    7) Why?

    8) with larger magnetic flow density of the permanently magnet one needs fewer ampere to move the same mass

    9) the same ampere with higher magnetic flow densitiy can move more mass

    10) the acceleration of the cone is larger with same mass, same ampere, higher magnetic flow density

    11) the fs should be deeper with higher
    magnetic flow density...

    12) Where is the mistake in reasoning?

    Ralf

    You got me I was lazy and didn't check up on the old K series and assumed they were the same as the E series. As far as differences that you have measured between the K-130 recone and the 2235... I would put my money on lot to lot variation over demagnetization.

    But now that we are on the subject, did anyone ever notice that while the K-130 does indeed used the same structure as the 136A the pro variant, the 2231A, used a slightly larger magnet return casting. JBL claimed the 136A to be identical to the 2231, but in fact they are slightly different. You can even see it in the L-300 brochure in the cut away photo.

    Any ideas about that one.

    Yes, I've owned all three. I have no idea where that "goofy" magnetic structure on the 2231A came from. We could probably find out if it's that important. The 2231A and 136A are functionally identical, as would be a K130 or K140 with the old C8R2231 cone kit installed.

    Thanks for the infos, Giskard.

    Can you hear a difference between the 1,2 and the 1,35 T Versions? More Mids? Or is it not visible?
