Default Jordan JX92S full range drivers in stainless steel enclosures

I've got a pair (with a spare driver) of Jordan JX92S full range aluminum drivers mounted in cabinets fabricated from 10-gauge stainless steel. These enclosures are based on the 8 liter reflex design on Jordan's website. However to obtain maximum rigidity and minimize internal standing waves, the dimensions have been reconfigured into a semi cylinder while maintaining the same internal volume and cross sectional area.

Iíve built Greg Monfortís 48" MLTL in Baltic birch and a variant of Jordanís VTL transmission line in MDF. With the exception of bass response the aluminum drivers mounted in steel are superior in every way.

My original plan was to go into business introducing a high end line of speakers consisting of metal drivers in metal enclosures. The premise being that superior materials produce superior results. MDF and even the best hard woods are cheap and easy to work with; stainless steel however is considerably far more costly and definitely more challenging to work with. Now I know why there isnít a manufacture willing to market a product like thisÖ

Iíll try to post some pictures in the next few days. Here's a chance for you to own something truly unique. Pitch me an offer if you are interested. Iíve got $900.00 into the cabinets. A pair of JX92S drivers sells for $360.00 including shipping. Mark Audio based in Hong Kong is the distributor for EJ Jordan in North America, Creative Sound is no longer a handling Jordan.

Johnny, sorry to hijack your (?)thread. I've not heard many people expressing the opinion that stainless steel is superior to wood.

As my brother is a stainless steel fabricator, I would be in a good position to exploit any concepts that emerge......<holds breath, but not for too long>

I have not been able to figure out how to post pictures, but I can email some to you. If you could then post them on my behalf I'd be very grateful.

To post a pic go to the bottom of the reply window and hit "choose file" Then go select a pic from your HD. It can't be huge. 100K or so.

I must say, that while I'm used to wood speakers, those look quite attractive. Can you tell they are in a metal cabinet or do you feel they are stiff enough?

Peachland eh?

Do you happen to know...

Thanks Cal. The pictures don't quite do them justice. With the stainless steel and cylindrical structure, I'd say they are about as rigid as can be. If you live or happen to be in the area, you're welcome to hear them.
