Default Favorite Full Range Driver Poll

If you had to pick only one driver to do it all, what would it be? Please tell also the cabinet you like it in best. My current favorite driver is the B20 in the half chang.

I haven't heard enough full range drivers to list a favourite but my Jordan jx92s is awsome.
It keeps blowing my mind when I listen to my ml tqwt's.

At times I've had my doubts but I really love these puppies.

Probably the Radio Shack 40-1354a with Planet 10 phase plugs in Bob Brines' cabinet. That's a hard to beat combo, although a bipole cabinet with the 1354a's and a passive radiator will render pretty good sound as well.

Best Regards,

If I were allowed to "cheat" a bit and use a tweeter my favorite is the
Beta 12LTA. Held to a single driver I'd have to choose the FE206ESR.

I really like my Jordan Jx92s as well. I run them in a sealed box and use a sub to fill in the low end.

It seems the Jordans would go really well into a BIB. I wonder if it would output as much bass as the B20s in the chang. I am curious what other peoples favorite drivers are.

Ditto. People who hear them are always totally astonished.

I use a simple BSC in the box, and an active crossover to the sub at 125Hz. The sub is a 10" XLS with matching passive radiator. I modeled the response in software and measured it once the system was built. Dead on.

The system was designed to go in a small office. I am toying with the idea of doing a Jx92s system for a larger room. For some reason I cannot get the idea of dipoles out of my head. Can someone direct me to info on the theory of dipole systems? Or talk some sense into me?

What's a BIB? Something infinite baffle?

BIB= Bigger Is Better. The nickname for a variety of tuned enclosures. Godzilla has a site where you can learn a great deal more about these easy to build speaker enclosures.

That's good to know. It would be even better to know the URL.
