    Question Question about 2360 Horn

    Hi,

    i have a question about the gasket of paper between the throat 2360 T and the horn.

    Is it right, that the slot in the gasket is smaller than the opening at the throat and horn?

    Hi Dieter

    - A paper gasket shouldn't be sticking into the horns' throat area. If it is then someone was sloppy with its' placement or the paper cutting machine wasn't sized correctly .

    - The right amount of "free-edge" thin paper in the throat area coupled with high nodal pressure will = " Very large KAZOO " generator

    Hi boputnam & Earl K,

    look at the PDF. There is a gasket between throat and the horn ( nr.: 60718-01.

    At my horn the slot in the paper is smaller than the slot in the throat.

    regards Dieter

    Smaller Gasket ?

    Hi Dieter

    I'm ( of course ) in agreement that the gasket should be used - but - just about always , the gaskets' hole size should match that of the horn flare and that of the metal throat piece ( another compression node ) . Making it smaller increasing the velocity at that one node - followed by an abrupt expansion into the horn bells' loading slot. That isn't the way horns are usually designed. That'll cause a cancellation somewhere in the passband of the horn response.

    If you're asking; is this a modfication that JBL came up with to address ( ie cancel ) an unwanted horn mode ? - well - someone else will have to answer that question.

    Why not make up another gasket of the correct apeture, make some detailed response measurements of the two aperture types , note the differences caused by the two aperture sizes and let us know the results . I'd like to know what you find.

    You can purchase the necessary gasket materials from a local automotive supplier.

    regards <> Earl K
