Now that Iím optimistically confidant Iíve secured two cabinets to mount four 2225ís, I want to explore other possible upgrade (?) paths.
My current system is comprised of 1 2245, 2 2225ís, 2 2202ís, all mounted in separate JBL theater cabinets (2 Ĺ, 5 & 8 cubic feet I believe). 2 2425/2370ís and 2 2404ís in conjunction with a 3102 high pass network (Iíve got it running in parallel with the 2425ís). Everything is 8 ohm and was purchased new in/around a 1984/85 timeframe. Crossover functions are handled by a Rane AC23 and a BX63 for a 4 way system (sort of, 3-way stereo plus mono sub).
Iíve have two each (purchase used) 2225ís and 2235ís waiting to be used. Iíll load the 2225ís into the new dual cabinets and the 2235ís into the newly emptied 5 cu. Ft. cabinets.
Q1. Does it make sense to move up to something like a 2446? Iíve never auditioned any of the 4 inch compression drivers but used prices seem pretty reasonable these days.
Q2. Would it be better to procure another AC 23 to run the 2235ís in a stereo 4-way system? Zilch has confirmed I can run them off the BX63. My preamp has two pre outs so I could still run the 2245 off the BX63.
Q3. Edited and respectfuly withdrawn.
Just for the heck of it:
Q4 Can I run another pair of 2404ís in parallel off the 3102ís? Iím assuming I can but I donít have any facts to back it up.
Q5. What do people use for a crossover for 2405ís? I know I could go electronic but Iím just about amped out here.
BTW, I would like to thank all the members who took the time to respond to my previous posts.
It may not be pretty but its music to my ears.
