Altie, where did you get B-52 COMP-4CLS . Also did you have a chance to measure the audiopipe jbl 2414h clone. They look very nice and right priced.

Ebay. There might not be any out there for the same price now. Here's a pair for $45 each: Pair B52 COMP-4-CLS Celestion CDX1-1746 Screw-On Horn HF Compression Driver 739894548755 | eBay


And I have not measured the Audiopipes. Can see about doing that soon.

Thks for the info. I saw a similar link on ebay and but i was concerned they might be counterfits. They price for the pair is good.

Looking forward your measurements on the audio pipe. I want to build a two way cd waveguide and due to recent back problems, the weigth of the drivers has became a major spec on the design. The audio pipe seem light.

They are about as light and small as I've ever seen a CD. If they do match the 2414h, those measurements are here: 2414h which don't look great to me.

If I was in the same position though I'd probably be looking at the 2408h-2. Not much bigger, available name brand for around $60 each and known to measure well on commonly available waveguides. JBL 5020337X 2408H-2 HF Driver For AC195, AC266, AC299 | Full Compass Systems for one example source.

In case it helps, COMP-4CLB is back up for $40:



Replacement 1" Compression Bolt-On Driver B-52 COMP-4CLB 8Ω | eBay.



The CLB may be the one you want, not the CLS - as far as I can tell those correspond to (B)olt on and (S)crew on.

Thks Altie, the deal is amazing. Just torn between between the 2408-h2 and the celestion / b52. Seems that the b52 might be slightly better but the jbl are probably 2 lb lighter

I have been very interested on the jbl hf 2408-h2. It is a not serviceable driver according to jbl yet u can fine aftermarket diagram in speaker exchange. Many people sell "new original" jbl on ebay and ali with no brand sticker. Will publish soon

I just bought myself a bunch of the B52 waveguides from PE and some Celestion 1745 clones... Looking forward to putting together a nice affordable 5.1 or 7.1 setup.

Is the B52 CD clone made by Celestion? The plastic looks same.

I have not seen them but according to Altie they are rebranded Celestion. It makes sense that b52 will buy them oem to get a better price.
