VGC™ Transducers: 2206, 2226 and 2241

To increase power handling in low frequency transducers while reducing power compression, JBL engineers have created a unique, direct voice-coil-to-air heat dissipation method called Vented Gap Cooling (VGC™). This process pumps air through the magnetic gap and directly over and around the voice coil to provide immediate heat transfer and reduction in operating temperature - a direct improvement in power compression.

Through the use of new computer-aided magnet optimization and analysis techniques, JBL engineers were able to optimize both magnet weight, flux density and field saturation resulting in significant reductions in overall driver weight and harmonic distortion. These new magnet structures offer much of the weight advantage of rare earth magnet structures without the prohibitive cost.

2226H/J 380mm (15 in) LF Transducer
The high power handling and robust construction of the 2226H/J make it a natural for tour sound and fixed sound reinforcement use, while the low distortion and smooth response make it an ideal choice for critical high level monitoring applications.
  • 600 W AES continuous pink noise power capacity
  • 8 ohm (2226H) or 16 ohm (2226J) impedance
  • 100 mm (4 in) edgewound aluminum ribbon voice coil
  • 30 Hz-2.5 kHz response
  • 97 dB sensitivity, 1 W, 1 m (3.3 ft)
  • SFG magnet structure with Vented Gap Cooling™ technology
  • Net weight: 8.7 kg (19.25 lb.)


2241H 460mm (18 in) LF Transducer
The 2241H is ideally suited for use in touring and fixed sound applications where high SPL and deep bass response are required. Its low distortion and smooth frequency response make the 2241H suitable for critical monitoring applications as well.
  • 600 W continuous pink noise power capacity
  • 8 ohm impedance
  • 100 mm (4 in) edgewound aluminum ribbon voice coil
  • 30 Hz-3 kHz response
