I recently fitted the above replacement diaphragm with no problems.
When I saw the packaging, I instantly recognised that it looked like a P-AUDIO
Sure enough, the JBL2412 seems to be a variant of P-Audio's PA-D25.
www.proaudioparts.co.uk can supply the complete DRIVER for �16.33 !

i.e MORE than FOUR TIMES as expensive.
