    thanks giskard (and others)

    provision of theile smalls much appreciated.

    can i assume then that a 2242 cone would also fit?

    i ask only as there are cheap 2242 aftermarket recones available here(....of which , can i trust they will match jbl spec???)

    cheers

    I wouldn't assume it. Ask JBL Pro or do as Oldmics suggested.

    2227H

    I notice 2227H there. Is that the same deal? 2226H with a foam surround for "extended" bass?

    2227H

    Smooth curvilinear cone, cloth roll surround, 100db sensitivity, 50hz Fs, high efficiency 15in midbass driver! More for PA stacks.

    Re: There is a JBl 2243HPL? What is the difference between this and a 2242?

    Sorta like a 2241 and a 2245 crashed into each other.

    Closer to a 2241 which means a 2242 kit will not fit.

    This speaker was used in the Synthesis in 1998.

    All above info was provided from our friends at JBL Pro

    Its a weirdo!

    Oldmics
    So, it's a vented-gap, foam-edge 18"? That's kinda cool.

    I always thought JBL only made one foam-edged 18"... guess this proves otherwise!

    Foam Surround ?

    It's hard to say from the pics but it looks like your driver has been reconed once already. The surround looks more like an accordian surround than a foam one. Looks like that 18 led a hard life ...lol...sorry, I would look on the back side of the cone and see if you can find some numbers to cross to see what has been done already. If it was me, considering the price you paid for the frame I'd pony up for the JBL 2243 recone kit. That would be on kick ass sub.

    dubious cone history?

    well spotted...i hadn't noticed the concertina surround.

    shouldn't matter if the previous voice coils were fryed as long as the motor hasn't been baked in the furnaces of hell, then a new cone effectively gives me a new driver right?!?

    my inclination is for a huge horn sub...but whatever i do with it i'll post the results


    cheers

    According to the current tech doc, the 2227H is not recommended for use as a subwoofer: http://www.jblpro.com/pages/pub/components/2227.pdf

    Smile

    Itīs more like a VGC 2220H, more power handling, less power compression, and very efficient, but not for deep bass.

    Dunno. Maybe one of the reconers here will recognize the driver though....

    ANYBODY? What is the mystery JBL 18 there?
