"Fostex FE103E vs. Jordan JX92S: Any use of the FE103E in a vented box is a criminal act at best.
[sarcasm]You're right. Now I hate my speakers. I must have been deaf all along.[/sarcasm]

And I would expect the Jordans might sound a teensy bit better at their much higher price. The 103's are not going to shake the room - in any enclosure - but if he wants a small FR enclosure, the 103's in a BR are a legitimate consideration.

As much as I love my fostex 108, I would have to agree that if your looking for a small fullrange design the fostex 4"ers just aren't happy. I've tried my 108's in quite a few enclosures and they deffienetly sound best either in a backloaded horn or in a two way design. I've even tried them in small sealed enclosures with subs, and unfortunatly they still don't have enough excursion to reach any kind of volume cleanly.
Having heard Jim Griffin's jordan design, I think that if effeciency wasn't an issue, you would be hard pressed to do better for a small fullrange design.

Thanks for your input J.

Yes as I said, performance is more important than a low price and I also want low motor distortion and good cone behaviour. That is not possible with 0.35mm and a paper cone in this case which is a toy IMO, no offense to those of you who use it and like it. :-)

I looked at those Tangbands but the Jordans, even though slightly bigger and more costly than Id like, seems so superior it might be the one.

The alternative would be a small two way with a Seas or Peerless 5" but we thought that it would be nice to try something new with a more simplistic approach and possibly smaller enclosure without sacrify to much of the bass extension.

Possibly a sub will be used so that could lead to the more "midrangy" of the Jordan drivers.

Well, offense taken anyways . In the right configuration they are certainly more than toys and have a great sound when horn loaded or in a two way configuration.

My "toy" which is just getting finished up:

Nice work there. I understand the situation is another with a two way as your design.

Here is a link to the design that people have been talking about. I guess you have to buy it to get all the details. I do know that it's a third order cross over at 3k. You could try and copy it, or just buy the kit, but I don't think the schematics are available publicly.

there is a design in one of the threads here that has the details of a similar minimonitor worked out.

Thanks for the link -

I was not expecting a 2 way design & I am immediately suspicious of crossovers in that kind of frequency range - which is also counter to the full range philosophy - Course I haven't heard Jim's speaker yet - but I can say I am more than happy with the JX92 on its own & that if improvements are to be made I would look first to adding / improving bass. The top end for me would be a lower priority.

As a matter of interest what category award was given to Jim's design & how was it given?
