What is better than JXR6 HD - Current state of the art drivers for FAST
Have you looked at the 5 Subjective Blind Listening test threads? Many of the state of the art drivers and some basic ones were all tested and recorded with a FAST setup. Listeners picked their favorite sounding ones.

Briefly the top ones that measured well and were picked include:

Visaton B80, SS 10F/8424, Vifa TG9FD10-8, Peerless P830986, SBA SB65WBAC25-4, and Dayton PS95-8

If you like the sound of ultra low distortion, the 10F is the tops.

Distortion will go up as you XO the FR lower. Nearfield it should be negligible.

Except for the Frugel-Horn Lite no A5.2 cabinets have been released, since only Japan has A5.2 so far.

Thanks guys, I'll search those threads.

Does anyone know if there will be a replacement to the Jordan JXR6HD in the near future?

You might want to ask Colin. He's a user here, and also associated with EJ Jordan. I'm sure he'll pop into this thread.

Hi,

I'd probably stick with the JXR6HD in sealed and stuffed 2L.
H1480 L16RN-SL
Is a very impressive small bass unit, with a large cone
area for its size and very impressive excursion capability.

Pay close attention to the JXR6HD rear air flow.

rgds, sreten.

Maybe. Still a big turnoff…

That sure is a Mt Everest peak on that woofer however rolling off above 150Hz should kill it even with a shallow filter. Higher order cone harmonics may still be a problem though.

Seems like the JXR6HD is still a decent driver even for its age although I would like to try something different. Would be interesting to see a comparison between the new Mark Audio alpair 5.2 and the JXR6HD.

Colin, any updates from EJJordan on a possible update to the JXR6HD?

I could be wrong, but this suggests not - at least presently
JX92S and JXR6 drive units

Quote:
Over the years, we have produced a number of loudspeaker drive units, all sharing the common philosophy of wide bandwidth, fast transient response and versatility in use. From the original Jordan-Watts Module in the 1960s to the more recent JX92S and JXR6HD, these units have been very successful at capturing the essence of live music.
Both these units are now superceded by the Eikona.
Click the titles below for full specs for these drive units. At a later date we will add the JX53 and the JX125 and JX150 bass units.
Not being as fluent in Jordanese as Colin would be, I read that last sentence to imply that the entire JX series has been superceded by the Eikona, with no current plans for smaller diameter models.
