Default alpair 5 from markaudio

hi,

They're brand new, so I doubt there'll be many people here who've had a chance to listen to them. Looks like they've had Ted Jordan's input (always a good thing) so I imagine they'll be pretty good, albeit low sensitivity & needing that supporting bass unit. From a brief look, the 2 way on the Markaudio site looks like a reasonable enough design if you want a bookshelf cabinet.

I'm not scottmoose, and I have little experience with the Jordan and none with the alpair, but it seems to me that you'd use _either_ the Jordan or the alpair, and supplement whichever you choose with whatever is needed to approach full-range in a bookshelf design. With the alpair, you'd clearly need a woofer, and with the Jordan, you could possibly add a tweeter. The Jordan and the alpair overlap so much in terms of usable frequency response that it would seem like a waste to use both in one design. You'd have plenty of choices in terms of a crossover point, however, if you did. ;-) - Pat

yes pat, i think so. i have jx92s, and i find it very good, just the high not that detailed.

i just worried that the spl would not be enough for the alpair 5 to fill the room

thanks pat for ur opinion

The Alpair was the Jordan J6T in a previous life. These are the parts that Mark Audio had all tooled up for Jordan before the dramatic events.

I have an unused pair here, Gregg the Geek and i have been playing with the J6T in preparation for these.

They fill the same niche as the FF85k, the jury is still out but the Fostex has the edge.

I think this is actually Greg the Geek's project, and the woofer is likely one of the Silver Flute drivers on sale at Madisound for less that $30 each.

polka dots are extra

That is the Jordan J6T + Silver Flute 5 1/2".

It is Gregg the Geeks. I just did the drivers up for him.
