Anyone use Jordan JX92S with low-powered SET
Still deciding about building my first speaker. I have low-powered 2A3 based SET amps. I'll be listening near-field and don't require much volume since I'm listening at work. Also, I would like it to be a bookshelf sort of design because of space limitations - will really be on my desk.
I haven't found anyone using the Jordan's with SETs. I would like to know what people think if they are out there. Would this be a waste of time and I should look at something else.
Another option... that could possibly work in my environment would be the smaller JX53 drivers. Any opinions on this?
The Jordan drivers are probably best if you consider low listening levels because of the resolution it provides. It might be possible to get the JX53 below 100Hz for close listening, but I haven't seen a project like that working yet. Hope I can get mine to work.
The JX92S has much better bass capabilities, and probably is best for your application.
There was a site at one time in which someone had built the TL speakers with the wide baffle and ran them with 2a3s. They said they sounded good, but couldn't get a lot of volume. In the end, they ended up adding a sub and relieving the Jordans of the lowere frequencies and were much happier with the outcome.
For your use, I'd think you'd be fine at lower volumes. Or, you could try the Fostex FE108E Sigma, as they are a little more efficient. The 168 is even more so.
