Default EJ Jordan JX-150

So... I own a pair of:

Jordan JXR6HD
Jordan Eikona

And I'm considering adding a pair of JX-150 drivers to the collection.

I have found a seller with two new-in-box units. The price is $272 each, delivered - which is steep; but then again, they are probably some of the last NIB JX-150s out there.

I like to experiment with my drivers. So I would most likely build something to use them full-rage, and in combinations with my other Jordan units.

Are they worth it? Or can I find a better match for my other other Jordan drivers for the same/less?

well it sounds like you're a Jordan complete-ist, so I'd probably go for it


remember, you can never get too much of what you don't really need

I own other drivers, many other drivers, actually. But I'm on a full-range kick right now. After Jordan's I'll be trying some from MarkAudio.

So what do you think of the JX-150? What would you buy instead?

Pricey. I did get $400 for my esentially new pair.

The actual price of the drivers is $203.73 each. Problem is, they're in Europe. Shipping here to the states is quite expensive. About $100 euros.

The JX150 is a good match for the JXR6, especially if running via a passive crossover.

As an alternative, the Visaton AL130 has been used, doubled up, in a MTM arrangement

AL 130 - 8 Ohm

hifisound eShop * -* E.J.JORDAN MINIUM - KOMPLETT-BAUSATZ * S

and EAD make a slightly different version of the JX150

EAD Webshop - EAD E170

which has a conventional rear suspension. It's more expensive than the JX150 and you probably get hit with the same courier charge to the USA.

Thanks for the thoughtful response, Colin.

Anyone else have suggestions for alternative bass units?

Check out the HIVI M8N if still available.

Hi Greg - That looks like the driver that UK designer Tom Evans used in his Jordan JX92S-based speaker

Happy Holidazes and all that jive!

Dunno. All I remember now is that the M8N appeared to be a cheap Jordan knock-off that was a great bang/buck performer according to whoever it was I did the MLTL for.
