Well - the colour looks a little bright but that may just be due to the photograpy.

The irregularities are due to the way the cone is manufactured. When I held my 2206s in my hands for the first time I was a little disappointed seeing these irregularities. OTOH they are a clear indicator that the cones are not just manufactured using pressed paper.

These were the first speakers that I have seen using this kind of glass-fibre paper composite cone - years before they appeared in those expensive scan-speak drivers !

Regards

Charles

Phase accurate (btw; good name); Did your 2206's have a white marker on the back of them? I heard all JBL cones have a sort of white marker on the back of them, is this true? Is the 71117 ID number correct? One more photo.
