    Probably a Waldom recone kit - definitely not quite up to JBL specs...

    If he represented it as all original JBL parts, you should get a refund. If you bought it "as is"...I'm afraid you don't have much recourse. I hope it works out for you.

    Yup, Waldom is the name, and they are cheaper, and so is the sound you get from them.

    For what it's worth I have talked to a few guys that have used the after market 2245 kits and they have claimed that they sounded just as good, In fact didn't someone do some testing on a aftermarket recone and state that the specs were correct???

    By the way for a JBL recone kit you are looking at $200 plus

    I had a pair of 2235 with after market kit's, they sounded better than the original 2235 cones. I tested them in a 8 cubic foot box. There was less boom and were very smooth.

    Are mine original ?

    I've just bought two 2245H used

    The original owner say they has been reconed few years ago by an authorized JBL dealer.
    I can't say if they are original or not. Any suggestion ?
    here are some pics

    first picture is a particular of the cones. There is a small color difference. Both have foam surround
    second picture is a details of the back. The color difference is real. The darker one have SN N. 32605, while the other is 15215. Is it possible that this difference in the basket color is due to a different age ?
    third picture is a detail of what has been written on the cone (backside). Both speaker have the same
    finally last picture is a label that only one of the 2245 have

    Is it normal to find speakers with these differences ? Are these original recone kits ?

    Yes...It looks like yours are genuine JBL. Aquaplas on back of cone, and the writing from the production line. The older 2245's are grey, newer are black.

    The sticker on the grey one is with the "J" number is a production code....is fairly current.

    That is the first time I have seen a grey 2245, that's got to be rare??? I have a pair of 2202H mid drivers in grey but no big deal as I have seen that a lot over the years.

    The one I sold a few months ago was gray. The cone also had white aquaplas on the back, (it was an older recone kit).

    2245H recone kit

    FYI....here's a JBL 2245H recone kit. All JBL recone kits come in this stage of pre-assembly....and all service center units come in their own box. This is to give you some info when shopping for a recone so you know how the parts are furnished from the factory. The only unassembled parts JBL will sell separate from a recone kit is the dust cap and the trim gasket (either rubber or composite latex/cork). Notice the writing on the back of the cone...it's the model number for the driver... in this case 2245H and the initials of the QC person on the assembly line. Genuine JBL recone kits are not available as separate voice coil, spider and cone. I hope this caveat helps you to make an informed choice as whether or not you opt for factory or aftermarket parts and assembly.
