Greetings all,

I am curious about the comment made that the Bandor's were not as developed. What generally counts as development in a driver?

The Bandors could sound better. The man who uses them in his commercial speakers has talked about coating them with varnish to tame a cone resonance. The Bandors, like all other cone drivers, have cone and dust cap vibration modes.

I know a little something about material vibration modes. I believe I could make the Bandors better. Would this constitute more development?

While the technical skill required to control vibration modes in metal cones makes such development impractical for the diyer, Bandor likely has the capacity to incorporate the needed changes in their production.

Now, I find a great deal of practical guidelines for living a good life in Adam Smith's book "Theory of Moral Sentiment." In this earlier publication Smith explains both the "invisible hand" of the free marketplace and puts forth a very humane perspective on competition. Following those tenants, I suppose I should offer my services to Bandor.

If anyone has contacts with Bandor and would like to see a more developed Bandor driver, perhaps they would be interested in helping to make introductions.

Just a thought,

Mark

Default treated jx92s

hello mack,


interestingly about a year ago, i had a chance to listen to jx92 with treated cone, it looks like cement or some kind of sealer.
it makes the cone really stiff, and they were pair with a ceramic tweeter.
they sound very good. it was the moment that i want to use the jordans

Hi Mark

I made this comment based on what I know of the Jordan drivers and what I've seen of the Bandors since. Perhaps I should have said, the Jordans have undergone further development since I heard them at the same hi-fi show as the Bandors. In the JX53s case, this doesn't just relate to the cone material.

Interesting idea but Jordan are adamant that if a coating would help their drivers, they'd be using it. The whole idea of the Jordan cones is that they flex in a controlled, carefully designed fashion in order to extend their range into the HF region. Making them stiff would wreck one of the major design aims behind them.

If the JX92 sounded good, it was probably despite the coating.

hi colin,


i know, they told this to me too.
i think the vendor treated the cone, because they're using it as a wide range not a full range, because they add ceramic T to it.

right now my jordan is playing fullrange, and i'm not gonna treated them because i don't think i can afford to do it.

how about adding neodymium magnets?

sma,


no, haven't heard the lowthers, but i own loth-x entry level, paper cone with short kind of TL by the size of bookshelf. i prefer the jordans allaround.

what system do u have right now? right now i'm trying to tweak the jordan a bit to the most optimum.

and i'm thinking to use L and R as jordan's website suggested.

because the mid is very dominant, it clouded the bass a bit.
