Default Two-way - JBL 2226H + CD or Beyma 12p80nd + TPL-150?

Hello!

I have been thinking of the Beyma 12p80nd + Beyma TPL-150 combo for quite a while now. But I just got an offer to buy a pair of second hand JBL 2226H for 2000SEK per driver, that's about 220 or $305. New they would be twice the price.

The Beyma 12p80nd would be just a little bit more expensive than the second hand 2226H.

If I understand correctly the 2226H is too big to be paired with the Beyma AMT so I would have to go with a compression driver and a horn, something like Wayne Parhams Four Pi speaker. This option would much likely be a lot cheaper than the Beyma+Beyma option since the TPL-150 is quite pricey.

Although, the 12p80nd could just as well be matched with a compression driver + horn and that would bring the price down to the same level as the JBL + CD combo. But what is best?

I understand that the 12p80nd would most likely need subs to fill out the bottom end. No problems, I have a pair of Eminence LAB12 in sealed boxes already. The JBL would do pretty fine without subs, just a little bit of EQ in the bottom maybe.

I don't know yet what type of room these will be in. I am moving to study at university this autumn so I guess space will be somewhat limited. I guess the 12p80nd would give me a smaller box than the JBL.

What do you think I should go with? JBL + CD + horn? 12p80nd + TPL-150? 12p80nd + CD + horn?

JBL 2226H + Beyma 12p80nd+TPL-150 would do the trick.

About 200Hz and 1200-1500Hz would be xover frequences.

I would go with TPL-150/H instead TPL-150. It is little easier to work with.

About 200Hz and 1500Hz.
That's a bit too much money though, and the speaker would be a bit too big. Bear in mind that I'm a poor student.

So am i

Then buy Beyma 12p80nd and Beyma TPL-150/H.

You can always upgrade that system when you move to bigger apartment. That midbass/tweeter combo is very good and it can be good basis for hi-end speaker system one day.

Hmm, turns out that the prices I found for the 12p80nd were without VAT, so now they would be about 3000SEK each vs 2000SEK each for the 2226H. Is 12p80nd still a better option? Also the TPL-150 got a lot more expensive now with the VAT...

Next time look more carefully.

12p80nd/TPL150 are great speakers. They are always good option.

Are they good/better option for you, that is something you'll have to figure out yourself based on price/quality you can afford/want.

Okay, excluding filter prices the costs would be...

JBL 2226H + CD + horn - ~€860
Beyma 12p80nd + TPL-150 - ~€1560

In that case I think we have a clear winner, or?

Not when it comes to sound reproduction. The TPL way is in a different league altogether. You will not be disappointed. Save up the funds and do it properly the first time!!!!!!!!!!!!
