the JX92S Fs = 40hz, and i like the sound very much

although the CHR is a bit smaller.

Probably very good for nearfield, but i doubt if can filled up the room.

With ML-TL JX92S already hard to fill up my 6m x 4m room with sufficient bass

But overall i like the jordans very much. Maybe in the near future i will like Alpair 10 very much

The Jordans also cost about 5 times more.

Come on. At 65 bucks a pair for the CHR, you want comparable performance to JX92 selling for $ 360 ?

There is no free lunch.

I thought everyone agree that JX92S is overpriced

let just hope more people interested in higher fidelity rather than listening to some boomy and tingling highs , so the price for the driver can be lower somewhat.

Frankly I must disagree. I my opinion, Jordan like many other companies in this small segment of the industry, is not in it to suck their customers dry. You must consider the limited scale on which they are produced, and that each unit sold has to pay for the development and running costs of the business.

I agree, that is the point of DIY. Getting the most of your or our money

Thats why i didnt buy ATC drivers, although in my opinion that is the best driver i ever heard. The depth and dimension of the driver is absolute best, but the price is just insane. It just hurt the pocket too much

Hi Guys,
I think the issue on pricing is a challenging factor. There's all sorts of things that come into play.

Ted Jordan spent many years helping to keep full range alive. When I worked with Ted, he was already in his 70's still contributing to the full range community. I was the guy who invented the slogan for Ted "Father of Full Range" as a sort of recognition for his effort.

That said, times move on, the world has changed, its more important that makers to do their best to improve product and make it affordable.

When I parted from working with Ted (nearly 3 years ago), I knew there wasn't enough full range driver choice. I was (and still am) a DIY audio guy frustrated at having to pay big money for better drivers, or put up with the cheap units which didn't give me satisfaction.

So it's good to make high performance drivers affordable. Not everyone will agree with me. Those buying Fertin or Feastrex will think differently.

I'm happy to say more choice is gradually appearing from a variety of makers. So it's good to shop around and see what pleases at a price that's fits each individual.

Cheers,

Mark.

i couldnt agree more. I think Fullranger open a wide opportunity for more people even regular people to have a good hifi speaker without paying crazy prices.

1. In general its very difficult to design the crossover for 2ways or multiways.

2. U can always get a plate amp plus a good sub driver, if looking for more depth and feel of the lower freq.

3. Bigger chance to fine tune the speaker to our room, equipments and position, which means can get the best out of it.

and that regular people including me

Thanks, Mark, I went back and saw the ribs you mentioned - looks like a great driver.


Have you compared it to the Fostex, Tang Band and CSS offerings?
