The 2226H is a 600w 8-ohm speaker from the JBL cut sheet. Since I don't know how you have the system connected I will just have to look at the basics.
By how the system is connected I mean:
How do you have the speakers connected to the amplifier?
One per side (Dual Channel) Stereo Mode?
Is the amplifier set up in Bridge-Mono Mode with both speakers connected in parallel?
Is the amplifier set up in Parallel-Mono mode with both speakers connected in parallel?
The 1400csl did 520 watts into 8 ohms per channel. If you are connected in (Dual Channel) Stereo Mode it appears you are a little underpowered. The 1400csl only did 520 watts into 8 ohms per channel.
In Parallel Mono the 1400csl did 1050 watts into 4 ohms. Still low from the 1200 watts MINIMUM need for the two speakers together.
The 1400csl was not rated for a 4-ohm load in Bridge-Mono mode but would do 1500 watts for an 8-ohm load in this mode.
Since in Pro Audio you like to have amplifier power with about twice the Continuous Power rating for a speaker, for 3db of headroom for peaks in the signal source, the 1400csl is low in power for your needs. It's better to have a more power than to little.
The 1400csl will work if kept to low volume levels but if pushed or playing materials with a lot of signal peaks the amplifier will get warm- Hot even.

I run them in Stereo mode one per side,and amp is set up to stereo mode
I use this setup for mobile dj-ing where usualy vinyls are played but i noticed that when i hooked the 1400csl on 4 eminence kappa 15 speakers that means 4ohms per side in stereo it didn't get so warm after 5-6 hours of playing on high levels like on two JBL's which are 8ohm's but when i checked the impendance it says 5,5ohm's

The Eminence speakers may be better power matched.
The 1400csl is under powered for your application for even one of the 2226H speakers per side.

From here it would be kind of hard to say if itís overly noisy or not.
If you feel the fan in your CSL amplifier is excessively noisy a replacement fan can be ordered from our parts department here at Crown. If you are still concerned over the amplifier not working as you would like you can send it to our repair department here at Crown. A Service Return Authorization (SRA) may be obtained from the Crown Service web page at: www.crownaudio.com/support/factserv.htm

I have two more csl1400 amp's and they are much less noisy than 800csl.Maybe i can ask my local Crown distributor Studio Berar for the replacement of the part or maybe to fix it somehow
