Product Details

JBL 2268HPL 351210-003X 18" Neo Woofer

The JBL 2268HPL Differential Drive 18" speaker is the driver of choice for premium, high quality professional subwoofer systems. Compared with traditional driver designs, JBL's patented Differential Drive employs a pair of inline voice coils in separate magnetic gaps instead of a single voice coil-gap configuration. Available space is more effectively utilized, and heat is removed from the motor structure more efficiently. Specifically, the voice coils are wound reversely and are immersed in magnetic fields of opposite polarity. This ensures reduced magnetic leakage flux and focuses more magnetic energy in the gaps where it is needed. The 2268HPL is used in JBL's SRX718, SRX728, and SRX738 speaker systems.

So this one is not the same as the 2268H where it has 22mm Xmax? its a 2268 with 8mm Xmax? because of the HLP at the end? Thanks.

Asked by: MiguelX
This is not the same woofer, although the 22mm Xmax as listed for the 2268H is actually Xmax "Damage", or how far the coil can travel before it makes contact with something. This is generally called Xmech although JBL does not provide this figure.
