Default Which Single Driver???

ok,

yeah I know I am in the process of a Jordan JX92s bipole. But, I am looking at some others including Fostex.

I do have power (>15W tube).

Out of all the Fostex drivers and Jordans... which should I go for???

>95db eff is not really what I am looking for.

decent bass (down to 70Hz at least), flat response and NON droopy highs.

I don't really want to go to horn loading.

So, sealed or BR.

Thanks!!

If you want a wide sweet spot, you might want to go with a double bass reflex using a Fostex FE127E driver. Only about $37, and will meet your bass criteria (down to the 50's in a DBR enclosure.)

The cone, at 4.5", is small enough not to beam the highs (or need a whizzer like the 206's.)

There are just too many good choices (which is why Full-rangers tend to have more than one set of speakers )

nothing wrong with the JX92 bipole

FX200 is another one to consider...

and Visaton B200

and FE167 in BoB Brine's ML-TL

or bipole FE103 (actually bipole any of these )

and i could go on...and on ... and on...
