In Reply to: JBL TR-225 - Horn Replacement? posted by Jason on June 11, 2002 at 22:13:09:
: We've got a pair of JBL TR-225's (I know boo hiss) one of which has a blown horn. I was wondering if anyone here had any insight on the replacement of these horns, and if there was a 1" screw-on driver that would be a better replacement for both speakers, rather than simply buying one from JBL. I'm also having a hard time seeing the easiest way to open the actual cabinet up. So basically, any insight here would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
We are a large JBL dealer and warranty station. The best replacement for your TR box is the 2412 that came in it. We see these in all the time and find that usually the cause of failure is UNDERPOWERING! We often see fried crossovers in the TR cab's also. As far as access to the driver. remove the grille,( there are screws hidden under a rubber piece on the top of the grill) Remove the woofer and then reach in and unscrew the driver from the horn. The horn is not removeable. Inspect the crossover,( located on the input panel) for damage, it will be apparent, ( burnt chokes,exploded or bulging caps).
If you have trouble give us a call and we can walk you thru it.
To repeat my self, the HF driver in this cabs usually fails from abuse not lack of output capability, it will keep up with the 15!
