Default Jordan JXR6 HD Designs

Have any of you more...able designers come up with an application for these little guys? I just recieved a pair and am trying to figure out what to do with them (which means watching what you more sophisticated builders do with them, at least for a while).

Just looking to see how they are being used.

Cheers
Matthew

I'm trying to figure it out too! It would be a pity to just see them in multi-way speakers.

You can always start of with the small enclosures that Ted Jordan recommends on his site!

Yeah, I've seen the Jordan design. I think all Jordan fans have. I was hoping that someone had played around with them and come up with something else by now.

My new Bosch table saw arrives next week. Maybe it is time to do the "playing" myself.

Hi - I'm currently using a pair of JXR6s in 2.4 litre sealed enclosures. Sound impressive for their size, even used on their own.

At present I'm experimenting with the GM MLTL JX92s to add some bass, though if anything I think the 6s might be more sensitive than the 92s. (Looking at the spec, this could be because the 6s seem to be more of a 4 ohm speaker.)

Have any pictures of the 6s?

Find a reasonably priced 8" woofer of roughly equal efficiency, Fs 30Hz or lower, Qts somewhere around .4 - .45. Design a simple passive xover around 300-500Hz or so. Put the woofer in a vented (i.e. mass loaded) transmission line.

Alright, I am showing my newbie-ness. Could you explain a little more about how to design this? I understand the basics of crossovers (what they do and the idea behind them.

But, how exactly do I "Design a simple passive xover around 300-500hz or so."

Thanks,
Matt

Okay, for the sake of educating myself, here are the specs for the woofer:
Impedance: 4 ohms
Frequency range: 23 - 1,000 Hz
Fs: 23 Hz
SPL: 89 dB
Vas: 3.00 cu. ft.
Qts: .44

and the other driver would be the new jordan.

So, say I want to crossover at 400hz, or so.

What do I need to build a crossover?

FWIW, I'm using the JXR6 down to box rolloff at around 100Hz with no high pass filter. The JX92 is rolled in around the same frequency with a 9mH inductor to form a first order filter. Ideally the 92 could be a second order filter but the combination seems to work fine.

There is no advantage (apart, perhaps, from ultimate power handling) in crossing the 6 at 300-500Hz. Unlike the JX53, it will work down to around 100Hz, so with a high powered woofer, 200Hz should be fine and keeps the crossover point well clear of the midrange.

I'll be interested to see which bass unit you come up with to match it.

Pics - ah yes, I keep promising these. I'll dig out the digital camera.
