    Are 2118 cones soft?

    Hello all,

    The cones of the 2118's I just received are very soft and flexible.
    With a finger I can push the cone out of shape; it then returns to its normal shape by itself.
    Is it normal for them to have these soft cones?
    If yes, won't such a loudspeaker exhibit breakup modes etc?

    Thanks, Thomas

    Hello Thomas

    Those cones are very thin and light weight and the suspension is very stiff. If you push the cones will be the first to give.

    Being a midrange driver it is not unusal to have a flexible cone, after all tehy do not produce bass per se. The flexible cone probably is better for damping at midrange frequencies.

    I understand the 2118 to be a fine driver, maybe one of the best midrange drivers of that size and type JBL produced.
