IMO using SET would be underpowering the driver, unless for only low-level listening, in which case why spend so much money.

Hmmm, I could (and have considered) rolling off the signal to the SET in the lower midrange giving me headroom, and <gasp> build a SS amp for the bass.

Rolling off around 200-250Hz would probably be ok and let you get away with a lower powered amp (though 2-3 watts may be too low). BTW, by straight baffle, do you mean an open baffle? The JXR6 requires a sealed enclosure for its suspension to work properly.

I have about 10W to play with.

No, just speaking for the front baffle, I always treat the cabinet face independently of the enclosed volume.

Besides this, I'm thinking that if I use an active filter I could put the JXR6 into the larger 4L enclosure.

This may be a little off topic...

But...

I'd really like to see zaph's take on this driver...(www.zaphaudio.com)

Anyone have a spare they'd like to mail his way for the small driver tests? I can see where one might be hesitant to send away their uber expensive mini drivers when there is the small chance a 10 dollar hi vi might outperform it

I doubt that hi vi can out perform is in terms of fidelity. Since the JXr6 has a smaller cone, the low end is somewhat limited in comparison with 3" drivers. But other than that, very hard to beat.

I'm thinking of combining one of these with a woofer. Which of them in your opinion has the better midrange and treble?

The JXR6 definitely has the better midrange and treble. It is more refined and goes higher.

BTW, ref some of the comments about baffle step. I've found an effective (although not cheap) way is to combine two units in each enclosure.

The availability of suitable woofers will be improved once EAD put the JX125 and 150 back into production.

I have the JXR6 within some 2ltr enclosures driven by the Trends Audio little T-Amp... Sounds great, but definitely needs some help on the bottom end.

My plan was to add the following Sub-kit to the mix - it can crossover up to 200hz which I was thinking would add some much needed weight to the sound.
