Default Picture of modified JX92S

Hi

I found a picture of the modified jx92s.Hope it hasn't appeared before on this forum.Did the search and only found some members requesting the possible mods to this fine driver.

Has anyone done this mod? It looks but ugly,then again maybe with the same colour wood as the enclosures.....

Didn't the jx92s have a sort of "axle" inside it,which moves with the cone?

For $1550 a pair???

But then the suggested retail is $1750, so I guess it's a savings of $200.

Though it is still WAY expensive...that price includes an enclosure. Currently Carolina audio charges 2500 for the speaker.

No that was in the JX125/150. The 92 is conventional

As Dave says, the 125 and 150 had a thin rod attached to the dustcap which acted as part of the rear suspension. This also featured on the original 50mm unit and the old Jordan Watts module but the JX92 uses a conventional suspension.

Now you've sparked my interest, I alsway thought the Jordan Watts had three rods in the rear as suspension. The hole in the front does not seem possible to support the center rod. I kind of suspected the 50mm module had somthing there with the wires coming out from the back.

Which Jordan driver is this ?

It is stated in many sites as jx92s,but now I can see it is different.

The rubber (cone support?) goes inward and the magnet housing is not flat.

It has been 25 years since i've had a close look at one, but that is my recollection too.
