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.

OK, Mr Bond, you're old-school

add me to that list - I'd be happy to hear Ted's latest work ( my only experience with products bearing that label were very underwhelming - due to one pair being damaged, a second pair from the group buy of several years ago, and a pair in what I think was a compromised enclosure design)

If this new offering meets the high expectations, the issue of dealing with the frame shape could be considered as a test of DIYer's skill; if not, then even the simplicity of a round shape and the brand name won't assure market success.

Most DIY'ers have access to CNC machines, so the odd shape isn't a big deal.

That's given on the preliminary spec and it looks like the new driver is rated at 8Ω. It will be interesting to see what the final spec looks like but good drive unit design is like any other field of engineering - a balance.

And it depends what you want to use it with - if the power handling is better, there isn't an issue. 100w will give a respectable 104dB output at 1 metre on peaks. The Jordans have never been candidates for sticking on the end of mini-power valve amps. They're modern drive units.

CNC = Carefully Navigated Chisel? I shall wait for some listening tests, and reflect that every design is a collection of compromises. If you agree with those compromises, you may like the design, if not, not.

Happy New Year, y'all

I have the "old" Jx92, and in my opinion, they need plenty of watts to come alive... and they are 87 db or so... but I like them for their ability to make decent bass in a pretty small box.

I guess we all have different sonic preferences. I prefer high efficiency drivers

But, of course, let's wait and see.

TJ historically likes sealed, TL/~aperiodic and the new driver's specs reflects this, so the 'best' from this selection really depends on the needs of the app/personal preferences.
