    They do look very nice! Symmetrical waveguide and all If the sensitivity was a bit higher I would consider making a pair to replace my old rears in my HT set-up. Might borrow the waveguide to use with a more efficient woofer.

    I should look at that vs. the deeper 8" sq guide to go between my 228J's
    (a bit less space between them) 2414H is what I was able to get anyway.

    Nice packaging

    Thank you all for the compliments.

    I'm also doing some non-JBL alternatives, and may post a couple of pics as they are completed. I'll just provide links to details elsewhere, though, so y'all don't kick me out....

    You got to love the distributor mentioning "Watts RMS" when the manufacturer correctly states "Watts average"

    Gives me a rash

    I love B&C drivers, I have a couple of them and they deliver.

    There's another B&C 6.5" that may be better, but PE doesn't stock it:

    That combo will fit in the TW-0.38 cuft. cab, I believe.

    They also have a new 0.75" compression driver that may mate up with the vintage 2404H mini-buttcheek horn:
