You know I can still remember opening the carton of our first ever JBL drivers..the 2231A.

That was way back in the late 1970's. The JBL 2231A was the latest soa woofer from JBL...medium efficiency extended bass driver. Aside from the sound quality and power, it was way above anything else at the time.

This all came about in the quest to find a speaker with the big sound that really went down low and loud. I had looked at everything incl Tannoys but they just did not cut it.

Does anyone know who designed the 2231A?

My interest in JBL soon evolved into the purchase of all the drivers for the 4343..The magic still lives.

I think it woud be fun to hear about other members first experience with JBL drivers?
