    I would say there was/is a JBL BMS collaboration on that driver design. The exploded views look very similar the BMS coaxial divers. Actually I remember reading somewhere that small JBL one inch drivers were directly a BMS design. Would I like to have a full VTX rig in my inventory........you bet.

    I don't know if this has been posted before but they have the same bolt circle diameter as the 2431/2435/435AL/435BE/476Mg/476Be.

    3.250-inch bolt circle and 1/4-20 tap (4 Hole Pattern).

    Well, I'm happy with my 2450.

    Do you have a pair that you've tested?

    I bought a pair of D2430K with the intention of trying them on the three different 1.5 in. entrance horns I have on hand. That's when I discovered the "non-standard" bolt-circle measurement.

    My plan is to put together a 3-way system, with TAD TL-1801s or JBL 2245s (have both in cabs) up to 100 Hz, Acoustic Elegance TD12M (on order) up to 1000 Hz, and the D2430K above that.

    Are there adapters available for using this driver with 3.5 in. bolt-circle horns? If not, what horns are compatible as manufactured?

    Any tips appreciated!

    Thanks, Joel

    ^^^^ that flange is specifically for mating the D2430K to the M2 waveguide. The M2 waveguide isn't cheap (nor is that damn flange or the JBL pro logo to go with it).

    I know that link, man. Tried to ask them, they told me I should read this warning on that page.

    These tweeters are available for warranty replacement only. Contact us with cabinet serial numbers to place an order.

    OK, sorry, didn't know that they quit selling them. Looks like the only ones they still sell are the $1599 Vertex models.
