Can you switch the horn on SRX cabinets?
« on: January 26, 2011, 11:15:13 pm »

Just wondering, I'm looking at purchasing some SRX 725s over twin 718Ss but I'm wondering if I could swap horns later on.

Because they are the same size, etc.  Can I swap the standard 75x50 horn with a 60x40 model 2385A?  Would I run into alignment, crossover or other problems?

Also, has anyone ran 725s bi-amped giving the lows 3200 watts vs. 2400 watts?  Any problems?  The 2265 driver is a 1600 watt driver right?

SRX 725 have a 2 bolt, bolt on horn.
If the throat and bolt pattern are the same on the 2385a then physically it can be done.
I don't forsee acoustic problems, since the drivers are used in other JBL cabs with different coverage aspects.
The 2265 is rated 1200/2400/4800w
I biamp a pair of 725 with XTI1000 on tops, XTI6000 on mids.
At full tilt, the mids should see 2100w.
I've never been able to get there.

The SRX 725 uses the JBL 2451 compression driver, which has a 1.5" throat and different mounting than the 2" throat JBL 2385A horn. They won't work together because of this.

Nice catch.  I missed that.  After more reading, I might look into Danley stuff.
