Hi Natural Sound, I am still loving the Jordan BiB for some things.

Lately, I've been using small drivers. I avoidi any drivers with a peaky response -- it's just not worth the time to tame something when there are many other things to worry about. I'd rather wrestle bass out of a driver than have to smooth out the treble. Worst case is when you struggle with both, so no more peaky drivers for me.

Enclosure-wise, I'm trying to use the simplest thing that will work, and then use the saved time to refine that to the max. So often just a vented enclosure, conservatively tuned, then there's extra time to spend on dimensions, bracing, diffraction, etc.

And finally, if all that gets you 90% of the way, the icing on the cake can be a gentle contour filter. Or even better, using two drivers in a 1.5 arrangement (one driver rolled off). That's what I'm finding, anyway. Lots of good drivers out there.

Note that this applies to the Jordan design.

Don't have any experience with the current EAD version.

Just now looked at Jordan's new, preliminary JX92S, which if this turns out to be the production version, has a flat enough response to only need the ~standard 'FR' toe in, i.e. aiming them to cross in front of the 'sweet spot', which usually works out to aiming the left speaker at the far right seat and vice versa.

GM Whats ur opinion of the 9khz peak/ treble response?
Then again the final production ones may differ.

For someone like me that has broadband tinnitus, any sibilance is something I would have to deal with, but most folks seem to find it enhances perceived attack/decay ['fast'/'tight'], so being above our acute hearing BW and a narrow spike at that, I have to wonder if anyone with normal hearing would even notice it with normal toe in.

(Just to clarify, when I said peaky drivers, I meant certain Fostex and Lowther, not the Jordans.)

As the person being quoted here I would just like to point out that; clearly that is neither something that I have said, nor ever would... I have too much respect for people's individual choices, and I am clearly not a "sales" person.

I agree I am not a sales person either but, everyones ears are different. Thats why I got into diy I got tired of the flavor of the month speakers from hi-end or hi-fi magazines. I had one dealer that I was close to tell me he couldn't keep up with the speaker of the month in his stores and he was getting out of the hi-fi bussiness. I have not seen him for 9 plus years and I really miss talking to him not only as I friend but, a true hi-fi nut. He never did a sales pitch just treated you as family. I could walk in t he store and start helping people with anything hook ups,demoing, explaining products. Thoses were the days. I say this let your ears be the judge because you have to live with them in the end. Sorry for such along post. Jm
