Does anyone have experience with this? I have 4 of the drivers.
View the Media Kit. I read a lot about JBL but nothing about the little brother. The horns may be advertised as a bi-radial horn, they have the response characteristics closer to a CD horn, and take similar eq. The is a Radial horn and has different traits compared to a which is a CD horn. Already have an account? The street term is: I’ve also used 241 horns originally with drivers.
jgl You might want to give us some more info re your crossover situation, amps etcthere are folks here with way more knowledge than me that will chime in with the real down and dirty. Look to a separate driver, or find BE phragms or even Al if you want to squeeze more than 10k out. Also, does the HF response of the diaphram degrade over time ie after 25 years, would there be any benefit to getting new diaphrams to improve HF response – even if the existing ones seem to be working fine?
I’ll look into listing the whole package on eBay after I get a sense of what my shipping expense might be. Thanks for the advice.
JBL Model 2461 16ω High-frequency Driver for Reapir
Usually car body sound deadening mastic is the preferred option here. I’ve got two pairs of EVMB’s in ported front loaded cabinets on the ubl, crossed at hz, so I dont really need the low frequency response of a driver like the Very life like sound. When you ship, package VERY carefully and securely. IIRC, the spec sheet for jbll back page has the frequency plot for the mounted with the The A cross over Hz has worked well with either the H or H woofer in the 5 ft3 cabinet.
I havent tweaked the crossover points in a long time, but my recollection is that 2. That way, I can front load my mids now which should make the whole system sound better before before making final decision on the horns.
Presumably, JBL wouldnt have replaced the with the unless there was a clear sonic advantage to doing so, but maybe the s were just cheaper and jbo to cast.
There is a ton of info in the forum and on the web about this driver. The C’s that I’m using now actually jbp pretty good in the back of a decent sized room – its up front where they are lacking. I’m fairly sure that replacing the diaphrams with ‘s increased the HF response, because the system has never lacked for high end.
Yes, list 4261 parts package, offer the crossovers for free but note them as not a factory JBL assembly.

This is tweeter territory. The A’s that you have may be recones, I don’t remember them doping the cones that early but it is possible. JBL worth the monney? Otherwise, cosmetically they’re pretty perfect for something this old. Without re-hashing an old topic, have any of the aftermarket mfgs notably stepped up their game in the past 5 years? With drivers on them I always found myself giving them eq very similar to a CD horn in order for them to sound nice.
The nearfield lens may install over your horn, or may use a different flair, and this could depend on if there are the stepped perforated diffusers in your conical flair. My Rane does have EQ setting for CD horns, but I’d have to pull it and open the case to change it, which would be a PIA, so hopefully its not really necessary for the s. I havent been able to find any plots of the horns with a full range driver.
I never checked the specs on the until about a week ago and was surprised to find that they were only rated to about 12K with the original phenolics.
I think I found it! I didn’t do much with the home speaker line and this part didn’t cross over into live audio that I have ever seen.
Figure you’ll be shipping to Japan. Thats why the low-mid is set a little high.
I find the horn sound better with the modded ‘s on the horns. Searching this forum, I saw there was a fairly big debate on the forum about 5 years ago on factory vs aftermarket diaphragms. The time now is The frequency response you could get from them is a lot nicer than the horns. That would make the system harder to move, but I try to avoid nbl as much as possible these days anyway.
Years since I had my mitts on any mind you. I now own 2 of 2641 bins, which I reloaded with E and horns, with the drivers. I’ll see if tweaking my crossover points helps the sound of the existing cabinet setup, but I’m skeptical that this will help until I have better mid boxes. Is that 24611 L? However, its only in the past week or so that I realized that for all these years I’ve been running the ‘s a lot higher then they were originally intended, and I’d hate to build a new set of cabs, only to move the weak spot from the mids to the highs – so I’m hoping that there is someone on this forum who has used s with newer diaphrams and can confirm that this will work or not One advantage to going with a horn like the is that its physically not as wide as the ‘s – so I could make the mid-high boxes a little narrower.
So I’m hoping that I can do something similar with the mids and highs and get better accuracy from the same components by building new cabinets that are better designed for the application.
