  10. Item: JBL 4430 CLONES IMPROVED Location: Kumbia Queensland Price: $5,500 Item Condition: As New Reason for selling: Health reasons Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: JBL 4430 CLONES IMPROVED Up for reluctant sale are my pair of JBL 4430 clones. These speakers are modelled on the famous JBL 4430, but have a more modern take on the mid range & top end sections. The bass section is modelled on the 4430 cabinet to ensure that the bass driver will work just as the factory intended. It has the same internal dimensions & the same port dimensions, so the bass tuning has not been left to guesswork. The bass drivers were originally JBL 2225’s & have been reconed with genuine JBL 2235 cone kits, turning them into JBL 2234’s, so the cones & surrounds are good for another 15-20 years. For serious buyers, I can go into detail about how the above statement is correct. The cabinets were custom made for me & were cut on a CNC machine. All joins are tongue & groove joined, glued & screwed. Accuracy is less than a millimetre. The material used is MDF & all sides are 32mm thick, with extensive internal bracing. These cabinets do not vibrate. They are veneered in Silky Oak, with an oiled finish. The mid range drivers are brand new A55G compression drivers, mated to Elliptrac hand built timber horns. The top end is handled by JBL 2404 “Baby Cheeks” tweeters, fitted with brand new original JBL diaphragms. Crossovers are built by Werner Jagusch of Germany & incorporate PIO caps & autoformers. Mid & top end levels are adjustable on the autoformers & the crossover points are 500 Hz & 6000 Hz. Efficiency is around 96db & they weigh approximately 80-100kg each. The bass section & the mid & top section are in seperate cabinets. Suffice to say that I believe these speakers nearly do it all (I also believe that no speaker is perfect). They have incredible dynamics and the power & authority that you would expect, but can also loaf along & still produce a huge sound. These do not sound like horn speakers. I hope I haven’t forgotten anything, but PM me if you want any more info. Auditions for serious buyers welcome. I have added up the cost of all the components needed to make these & I got a total of over $7,000 & that doesn’t include any labour or the 100’s of hours involved. Looking for a quick sale, hence my asking price for less than the cost of the components. Thanks for looking. Pictures:

    Litz crossover inductors

    I have mine here....at the back of the speaker....just easier to get to things, rather than having the crossover at the amp end, especially if you have lots of adjustments on the crossover that you might want to change. I just put a set of binding posts on the crossover board that go to the input of the crossover, then I can use my normal speaker cables & plug straight into the crossover input.

    ALK has some interesting views on this subject. If you go to http://alkeng.com & go to "Klipsch Upgrades"on the left menu, then "Questions & Answers" at the bottom of that page you will see his reasoning. Above my head as to whether it makes any sense, but he does make very nice sounding crossovers.

    DIY JBL Clones

    The horn is made from MDF. It is made in 19mm segments, each cut to a different curve to make up the complete horn assembly. Each segment is glued & screwed together & then filed & sanded to the final curve. You can see the complete build of these speakers here at the Lansing Heritage site. http://www.audioheritage.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?40412-2234-Project
  15. I'm selling these for a friend. I know he used a Magnus solid state with them that sounded great. He also used a valve amp with them which also sounded fabulous.
