I was curious if anyone could provide any information regarding Yamaha JA4281B, JJA6681B and JA3882 components?
Happy New Year to all!

Very good stuff. They are, respectively, basically the Yamaha versions of the JBL 075 ring-radiator tweeter, the JBL 2420 horn driver, and the JBL 2220 15".

That said, the tweeter is significantly better in response than the JBL, in the top octave- it's flat out to around 18KHz or so. OTOH, it doesn't go as low as the JBL 075/2402- it's only rated down to 6KHz (where it starts to roll of rapidly). It's really, despite the construction, much more functionally similar to the JBL 077/2405 slot tweeter, both in usable frequency range and response. Due to the "bullet" construction of the phase plug, it will have narrower dispersion than the 077/2405- the dispersion will be more like the 075/2402 (narrow "cone" of output).

The mid compression driver has an Alnico magnet- I'd expect it to perform very much like a JBL 2420 or 2421. It's got pretty darn good response for a vintage compression driver.

The woofer should use enclosures similar to a JBL 2220 or LE15 (4 or so cubic feet vented tuned to about 40-45Hz). It also should be very well suited for a bass horn. In a vented box, it's not going to go very low (maybe 50-60Hz or so rolloff), but it will be very efficient.
