    2242H Question

    Hi all,
    does anybody know if the 2242H has its own chassis? Or is there any possibility to recone an other speaker to a 2242H?

    The 2242 has a deeper magnet structure than all the other JBL 18,s! So its a different chassis, I dont know if you can put a different cone in it, or a 2242 cone in a 2241 frame!

    I kind of think not, but Im sure someone has the definitive answer!

    Thank you Scott,

    That I already imagined. I think straight about the ultimative studio system. I would build gladly some double 18s with 2242H. Me becomes amusing if I think of the price of a 2242H. Are meanwhile defective chassis on the market?
    I like my four 2245. But the cabinets for a 2242 has smaller extents permit with same frequency response...
    Did someone already think about a project with double 2242s? Perhaps even four of it? 12" or 15" for the mids with horn and super tweeter? Project name could be 4349? What do you think about?

    Guido called me crazy. But I think, it could be a nice project....

    Well Ralf,
    you are not crazy!

    Lets go for it. I think it is more interesting than my M9500 Project so I'll skip it. My signature is already changed
    We need to discuss the Low Mid thing. I do not think that the 2234 is optimal.
    One 2242 up to 100Hz
    The other up to 300-400Hz
    Maybe one 2012H from 400 Hz to max 1k. I do not like the rising response of this beast. Maybe the 2123H is better?
    Now the problems start as I don't think the 2426 can keep up from 1 k on. IMO it is to weak. This could be the chance for the 2430 with the 1,5" PAudio 2344 clone.
    On Top? Of course the 2405.
    Designing the xover will last AGES but I only agree with 1 active xover between the 2242 and the rest.

    Lets see what the forum members think.

    The 2242H basket can take two different kits - the C8R2242 and the C8R2243.
