Default Jordan JX92S & passive radiator ?

IŽve seen JX92S in closed, br, horn and probably some more enclosures i cant remember right now. But i have never seen this driver used with a passive radiator. How come ? Is it just due to the added cost or would there be no benefits from such a design ?

Just curious.

Regards // Mattias S

My best guess is that it would be a very small PR, and those aren't so common.

That sounds interresting. Have you tried other enclosures before deciding on pr and in that case what was your conclusion regarding possible benefits from that design ?

Also, if you wouldŽnt mind, could you descibe the sound from your speakers ?

Do you have any pictures i can look at ? mail: grypthon at hotmail.com

No, haven't tried any others. I am building a set of three sealed Jordans now. I figure you need a sub for the Jordans anyway, it's only a small driver.

If I had more energy I'd try one of the transmission line designs.

Here's a pic:

Hi Mattias, I should clarify that as long as not too much bass volume is desired they work very well. In a smallish and well-damped room and with some baffle-step compensation, and on small-scale music, they are very good.

does this mean that you would NOT recomend the JX92 for rock or HT use? I was hoping to use it with a sub (100Hz) in say a 12 liter box for audio and HT use.
