It is reasonable to believe that most will not like the extra woodwork to make the driver look good/finished in a cabinet, me included. However, that extra woodwork would not deter me from buying an extraordinary driver, albeit this remains to be seen with this Jordan. It is also reasonable to believe, given the increased competition (Markaudio and Dayton, etc.) which was not present when the JX92s was first released, Ted Jordan would not create another obstacle for potential diyers, unless it yields much high higher performance.

Having said the above, and as much as I liked the original JX92s and think Ted Jordan is a talented designer and gentleman, I would opt for a similar performing driver without the hassle of doing extra woodwork.

The wider circular bezels of some of the drivers we commonly use have certainly precluded them being designed into some of our standard shaped designs, and have provided challenges to cabinet design.

ah yes, but with drivers that perform at this level, the sonic benefits far outweigh the extra design and fabrication "issues"

Indeed. And making us think harder pushed the entire family forward.

FWIW, I used to rarely fit grilles to my DIY speakers but the commercial actives I'm using at present have them. In addition to protection, not being able to see the drivers moving aids the impression that the speakers themselves are not projecting the music. For that reason alone, I'd add grilles in future.

... 84 db sensitivity?
Progress or just... a fools errand?
I know that the britts have a thing for speakers that require 1k watts to come alive, but come on? this is a step back.

Why?
I think MarkAudio have better alternatives here.

About the same as the A7. Althou closer in size to the A10.2 which is ~87.

My complain on the new shape is just because to replace my damaged Jx92 drivers in my vtl cabinet i have to go again for the EAD drivers.
