    Question Aftermarket Diaphrams

    I picked up a few JBL factory diaphragms in the past and thankfully have not used any, but I was wondering if there are any aftermarket diaphragms that had a better reputation than others Ebay has tons of them from China which may be where they all come from now. Roderick Loudspeaker has a good reputation has anyone used their diaphragms?
    Thanks

    ". . . as you have no doubt noticed, no one told the 4345 that it can't work correctly so it does anyway."—Greg Timbers

    My experience with cheap Chinese knock off diaphragms. The Radians are the best option for 2440 and 2425 style diaphragms.

    I've posted this before but it seems worth reupping.

    A pair of Radian 1225 Diaphragms have been ordered.

    Two 1225-8 Diaphragms from Radian arrived today the one I looked at looks great my goal is to never use it.

    It is fantastic that companies like Radian Upland and others step up to offer support for these fine loudspeakers.

    If your drivers currently have titanium diaphragms you may find that the Radians are a bit more pleasant to listen. I do with 2426s on 2344 horns, and most other horns TBH.

    In my system of 4 L200s with LE15s & 077s the LE85s are sealed yet should I assume they are not titanium?

    Added: When did they start making Titanium diaphragms and were they used in consumer gear?

    If your LE85s have their original diaphragms, then they are definitely aluminum. Titanium diaphragms were introduced in the 2425 and 2445 compression drivers after the LE85 was retired.
