Default Big Line Array with Jordan JX92S

Hi,

did anybody has experience with a big line array with 9 or more Jordan JX 92 S?

How does it sounds? Any limit or compression if you listen music?

Do you have a plan to build such a Line Array?

Thanks for your help.

regards

Josef

I doubt there will many with JX92 line arrays, although there is a JXR6 line array using 9 units per side, if you search the forum. An array of 4 would probably do most of us but even there the spacing between drive unit centres might lead to frequency lobing problems above 2kHz or so.

I truly doubt that there are many Jordan line arrays out there. And if there were they would probably drive a Bently or the like and know the Kenedys personally ( i wouldnt brag about that).

The only reasonable array i can conceive of ( not counting Jims floor to roof array and sitting in the Fresnel zone) is a focused array. There you could get away with 4 drivers.

I've considered an MTM with two pairs of jx92s, but I can't justify anything more than that.

The current issue of HiFi News reviews the Aurousal speaker and doubles up to provide a (rather widely spaced) pair of JX92s per side. The reviewer didn't find any real benefits apart from available volume.

For a Jordan array, the best route is the JXR6 (when EAD get it back into production) which has been designed for this purpose.

Or Bandor 50. I was calling Misses Bance on Friday. She said 50 module is constantly improved (smoothed HF response). 300mm module is virtual. I have no idea how make an order from Bandor, it's a challenge

I could have cobbled something together when I had 100 drivers sitting in my basement but alas they are almost all gone. Regardless, I would have to agree with stokessd.

The JXR6 would be a good candidate but it probably won't be cheap either.
