Default EAD/Jordan have a new range!

Just had a glance at their site and it looks like they have many new or updated drivers coming out with new chassis designs.
2 new versions of the JX92 (HD and HD+) and what looks like a new small driver called the JX60.

What I hoped for, like the JXR6 but with a spider. Will have a play on winisd.

Interesting. Presumably they've updated the range to try to make up some of the ground lost to the Mark Audio drivers. Difficult to make any assessments re the new JX92 models as the plot sizes are different, but it looks like they could be a step forward from their old units. The new JX60 looks a solid little unit too.

One thing that slightly concerns me -apparantly each unit now comes with individual parameters. No bad thing on most levels, but I'm not quite sure what it says about QC tolerances. If they were within a few percent (as they should be, and I trust they will be) that won't be necessary. Still, gives a good impression & it's equally good to see EAD are trying to improve the range rather than simply rely on the name.

JX60, plotted on winisd, not sure how it gets to 45 hz as they say.. ?

But the updated JX92(HD) looks interesting. Close to 30 hz f6 in a BR and 60 watts nominal/ 100 watts max rating. Pretty impressive, definitely fills a gap in the market.

Short answer: it doesn't. In fairness, I don't see any claim to that effect. They do claim it can hit 45KHz though.

Ah, sorry, I mis read it.

Very curious as to what the JX92HD+ offers.

Need to see some of those.

Wish the specs were in a more standard format. Based on other specs, efficiency is some almost 85 dB, not bad for a 2". Data for it and the J6T are very close. Wonder how much of the tooling for the J6T that EAD bought off Mark is being used.

Be nice if the data for the new JX92s was in the same format as the original.

The new JX92s have a nice resonance train starting at 5k. 10 dB peak at 8kHz.

looks like HD has improved motor and less dampening surround. I may get my hands on it for testing. Anyone has same size Alpair for testing and comparison?

Has anyone been able to get their hands on a JX60 for testing & listening? Considering upgrading some desktop speakers using the JX6rHD units and was wondering how much of an improvement these are.

Nice? It looks awful. The little Jx60 is ragged in that area too. I have Jx92s's from around 2004. They have the same shape of ripple in the response curve, but not that pronounced. It does not match the published specs for the one they are selling now. I use an active EQ with them for ripple-kill, baffle step, and floor bounce. Gadzooks. I have been tweaking that system for seven years.
