I can hear up to 10.5kHz these days, and the Jordan does that very nicely.

I have to ask: SQ?

Hi,

were you able to put the new driver in an old JX92 cabinet?

As he mentions drilling I assume not, why don't you PM him?

There have been many discussions on the forum about the new shape of the Jordan driver and the problem of fitting it in old cabinets. I think this is an information useful not just for me

The Eikona needs a larger diameter hole than the JX92.
The mounting holes are on a larger diameter circle.
The mounting flange is a different shape.

Hence chopping and drilling.

I was able to make these adjustments; they are a short term measure as I intend to create new cabinets in the foreseeable future.

Rebating the new driver into a panel will be less easy than a simple circular cutout.

My one issue with the previous version was the top end breakup and metallic sound in that region. The midrange was it's own flavor but was very good. The Alpairs are quite poor in regard to their top end metallic sound. My question regarding the new version from Ed is why did he change the round basket?

There was something about the change on the site - it needed a bigger chassis for the surround. Probably also practicalities of manufacture.

There is a drawing and set of sizes for the Eikona on the Jordan drivers page
