JBL 2226H 380 mm (15 in) Low Frequency Transducer
The 2226G/H/J low frequency
transducer represents the results of
JBL’s latest engineering research in
high power transducer design. The
2226G/H/J signifies a major advance
in speaker design by incorporating
JBL’s patented Vented Gap Cooling
technology in an improved Symmetrical Field Geometry (SFG) magnetic
To increase power handling while
reducing power compression, JBL
engineers have created a unique,
direct voice coil-to-air heat dissipation
method called Vented Gap Cooling.
This process pumps air through the
magnetic gap and directly over and
around the voice coil to provide
immediate heat transfer and reduction
in operating temperature - a direct
improvement in power compression.
The 2226G/H/J incorporates an
improved SFG (Symmetrical Field
Geometry) magnetic structure.
Computer-aided magnet optimization
and analysis has allowed JBL engineers to optimize both magnet weight
and flux density so that the 2226G/H/J
is not only 1.5 kg (3.25 lb) lighter than
its predecessor, but has reduced distortion as well. This new magnet
structure offers much of the weight
advantage of rare earth magnet structures without their prohibitive cost.
Increased power handling also requires greater
mechanical integrity. A new cone design greatly improves
cone strength and stiffness-to-weight ratio through the
use of a new glass fiber/paper composite cone material.
A new surround topology and edge damping treatment
allow greater linear excursion for matched power and
displacement levels. The voice coil benefits from a new
winding technique which offers greater power handling
and thermal stability. All design aspects of the surround,
cone and voice coil have been carefully optimized and
controlled to provide smooth and extended high
The 2226G/H/J can directly retrofit the 2225H/J transducer without enclosure re-tuning while providing up to
4 dB more acoustic output with lower levels of distortion.
The high power handling and robust construction of
the 2226G/H/J make it a natural for tour sound and fixed
sound reinforcement use, while the low distortion and
smooth response make it an ideal choice for critical high
level monitoring applications.
