"It will be 2 of these drivers in one cabinet, ported, not wanting to tune too low, as this will be used for strictly music, primarily kick drum (rock) type bass, and loud."

A 2235 would be a very poor choice. A 2242 while great, is a fortune.

Personally, I would get four Eminence 15s. More performance, less money.

If used in a home envirement, I dont see any reason why not. Given that they are driven active with eq applied. As mentoned above, I have two 2226H in a 100L closed enclosure, and powered by a Crown XTi 2000 and a low shelf filter its good for about 105db from 20hz and up.

Default bandpass

Hello,

Here is a recent thread on JBL 2225 and bandpass. These ideas should work for your 2226s as well.

Eminence, while good, is not in the same league as the 2226. JBL drivers have no peer. The closest would be Beyma. I've been considering the 2226 for open baffle use; powered by its own amp due to the low-ish Q. The FS is high, but fine for 95% of music.

"Eminence, while good, is not in the same league as the 2226. "

Used properly, Eminence can outperform JBL, and at a fraction of the price. In the USA Eminence has a better warranty than JBL. When your JBL 2226 blows up I suggest you try the Eminence KAPPA PRO-15LF-2. It will cost less than a recone on the JBL 2226. All my cabinets are push-pull slot-loaded (PPSL) which has less bass distortion than shorting rings do, and no shorting rings to work loose and destroy the woofer (as has been known to do on JBL).

Click the image to open in full size.

My drivers are a custom design built for me by Eminence, and they cost about 1/6th what a 2226 sold for. I have a few JBL drivers laying around, mainly ones that were swapped out for my design. I keep the JBL around to compare against my drivers.
