Recently I found a pair of old JBL Model 116H (8 ohm) speaker drivers. I trust these are good drivers and would like to make use of them. Would somebody kindly advise me how best to make use of these? What size cabinets and whether sealed or ported? Apparently, these are intended for use in two-way speakers. What is the lowest frequency these could achieve?

Many thanks,


William

William,
Start by getting the Thiele-Small parameters for the drivers. Plug those into a speaker program and an appropriate set of responses will emerge, as to whether to use a sealed cabinet or reflex, and the volume.
