The only thing that should make a difference is if you change the width of the box. Then baffle step will be changed. Though in the big picture of DIY, this is not the end of the earth. Moving the tweeter to the bottom side should make no difference.

I think the width is very similar to the original JG design give or take 1/4 inch

great project! I read this thread a while ago and forgot to post a comment. Are the jx92 still available or only thru a group buy? Reading the 'new jordan prelim details' thread and thru internet searches i wondered if the new jordan or one of the EAD drivers would be comparable (should i be unable to acquire jx92s). Can anyone comment?

Need to track down a pair of secondhand Aurum or Fountek ribbons now...

You can still get the JX92 albeit the latest "evolution" here from EAD

I doubt the Eikona would be exactly the same but you could suck it and see. I know Anders at EAD is very helpful and you could do worse than order a pair of the E100HD drivers, I'm breaking in a pair as we speak in a dual reflex enclosure and they sound fab, very extended bass. I want to see how much if any improvement there is with the tweeter...

Anders is very helpful especially if your a DIY'er so he may cut you a deal

Hi,

in case of combination with a tweeter such as Griffin minimonitors, EAD suggests the cheaper E100 since the improvement of the E100HD should only be on the HF

Much as I respect Ted and his technical excellence I'm afraid Jordan just aren't that responsive when it comes to customer service or after sales. Though if speed isn't a priority then give the Eikona a whirl.
