Jordan JX92s lovers, what else have you built and liked?
 
Dear DIYers,

I might have already posted my strange story about hi-fi experience, but let me repeat a little bit more.
Until I reached my age of 40, I had been a high-end audio nut for 20 years. I spent tons of money for high-priced equipments, and I couldn't spent a day without critically listening to good recordings and good equipments.

Long story short, I am no longer a same person. My current reference system is:
Source: computer -> USB DAC
Amp: LM3886 gainclone, driving at 24V
Speakers: Jordan JX92S in 48" MLTL without any tweeter or baffle stepping

I am happier with this system than the $$$ system I owned before.

Let me ask a question to you. Is there Jordan JX92S lovers out there? What other diy speakers do you use and love?

Doug

I used a 48 MLTL JX92 with a Naim Nait 2 which sounded good, if underpowered. I found BSC balanced out the mid-range. I built the VTL design for a friend and that sounded excellent without any BSC but didn't go as deep.

I sold the Naim and went active in my main system but still use the 92 in GM'a 31 MLTL as a bedroom system.

If not too worried about the use of a crossover, the JXR6 with a suitable bass driver is also a very good system.

Interesting to count 9 jordan's in your speaker.

It'd ensure an amp-friendly load, though: 3 paralleled groups of 3 drivers in series gives the same impedance as one driver.

It seems that Jordan lovers remain Jordan lovers.
How does JX92s work in a multi-way setup?

It works very well. 92 is a very flexible driver and can be used successfully in a different scenarios. Low end response and healthy x-max lets use it in a sealed box or open baffle as a largish mid-range crossed to 12" or larger sub round about a 100hz. Clean top end makes it easy to cross to a conventional tweeter or easiER to cross to a ribbon.
Basically, you have a ideal pass band from a 100hz (not pushing it) to a little over 3k (where directive behavior may become an issue for a multi-way system).
Alice is crossed somewhat like that. Sub-woofer (TL loaded btw) arrays kick in from 80hz to 18hz and the line of 92 works from that to 3K where ribbons take over.

Bingo ;)

interesting. Im almost surprised you cross the ribbons at 3k. Im using a fountek tho a different model, and i was scared to cross it below 4k. A fellow forum member RAART was interested in using his jx92s with the neo3.5h hornloaded ribbon. Im using that driver so i sent him my crossover circuit, seeing your arrays maybe you could also help? OT kinda, excuse me. Id try the jx92s myself but i doubt theyre easy to find any more.

I don't know how close the EAD version is in terms of spec but the replacement JX92 from Jordan should be a drop-in replacement.
