jbl lens horns

alright...
i have some 2395's and they're so nice i want some more.
someone i know of has the lenses but no horns for the backs...
what type of conical lens fits on the back of these 36" lenses...
were they produced seperately? or only as part of the overall 2395 unit?
i hope someone can help - old heads, i'm talking to you!

thanks
tom

thanks for that...
i already have that document and that's what confuses me - the lack of any model number for the horn which backs the lens...
it says "the lens is backed up by a 300mm (12") eliptical exponential horn" but unlike all the other memebers of this family does not specify a model number for a) the horn and then b) the lens... just the unit as a whole...

want to be sure before $$... costs a lot to get things moved over the Atlantic!

that sounds good man, when you say that do you mean just the horns or the horns & lenses??
Anyone tell me the model number for the horn that fits on the back of these lenses then?? Would be good to know...

The horn part number is right on the pdf. In the part listing the description is there.

There is a lens number and the corresponding horn number.

So go to page two and look very carefully.

For example on page two you will see 2390 horn 2309 lens 2310.

There you go.

Thanks for your input N.O. but i'm still being a bit thick... I CAN see that (as per yr example) the 2390 is specified as two parts 2309/2310...
the 2391 and 2392 also are specified as lens and horn part numbers
... but both the 2301 and the unit in question, the 2395, only appear as one model number in the chart...

Are you saying that the 2390 assembly uses the same horn (2309) as found in the 2395???
It doesn't look quite the same...
?????

Nice condition, however, he did spraypaint them, you can see the piece of wood with the overspray on the floor.

Also, yes, he has the conical horns for the lenses, but none of the mounting hardware. No H brackets, or the small metal legs for the front underside of the lens.

Yeah, Gary was or is having lens horns made for him, and HE also bought these from ebay!

Scotty,

Those are mine all mine .....

I was unable to bid on them as I was in a meeting so I had Gary bid for me. I wanted an original pair of lens horns. I hope they arrive in good shape for $751.00. I have had some items show up all beat up from bad shipping. What would you recommend on drivers?

FWIW....
I read someone saying that it is a good idea to have the seller disassemble the lenses prior to shipping....

saying that they tend to not get dinged as much that way....

Yeah, some of the horn lenses that come up on Ebay are already slightly dinged. They dont seem to travel well. I've always dreamed of owning these horns but the price and logistics of getting them to where I live has always stopped me... They ( and of course the drivers ) are getting rarer every year too!

Theres an article available on actual horn plate/lens design:

http://www.aes.org/e-lib/browse.cfm?elib=2953

If one had the time and expertise it would be an amazing project to design and build ones own!

Cheers, Nick
