Default Dang these Jordans!

It's a quarter to 3 in the morning, and I can't go to bed because I want to listen to the speakers some more. No one told me they induced insomnia.

Tell us more. What drivers, specifically? Enclosure? Or is there a thread somewhere else here?

If you follow the thread, you'll see that I've been conflicted about the baffle step correction circuit. I thought I could get used to the one that Jordan recommends, but no. I tried it without a BSC and thought that was okay, but I changed my mind on that too. I decided the BSC circuit was necessary, even though the units are close to a wall and one is close to a corner. I finally settled on a resistor value of 1.5 ~ 1.67 ohms. I've only tried the recommended 1.5mH coil with various resistor values.

I'm crossing over to my 10" XLS passive radiator sub at about 85Hz.

Jordans can be very easy on the ears long term.

Hey Nelson, why don't you hop over and give them a listen? You can listen to the speakers and watch our robots zipping around. (Robotics is my day gig.) You can probably sell some more stuff to my boss. He has a preamp and amp of yours, and he is ecstatic about them. He would be thrilled to meet you. He only sold his enormously expensive tube amps because he was hurting his back lugging them to the repair shop constantly. Literally. The fact that he is now a born again "solid state man" is no less astonishing than it would be if the Pope converted to Zoroastrism.

Just like the rest of you,I love the Jordan sound. Many times they have gently lulled me to sleep.But at the age of 56,other factors may attribute to this sensation. Maybe not hearing the high notes anymore contributes to my drowsyness. It's the ***** getting old. ZZZZZZZZZZZZ, WHAT DO MEAN I HAVE TO DO DISHES /? Dam .>?:"{}
