I'd just keep the surrounds fullrange. Dipole might be good for surrounds.
If you have a limited budget, spend more on the sub, it's a hard part if you want it to be really coherent. I think the JX92S deserve a good refined sub, rather than $$$$$ surround speakers. I designed the front satellites of my home theater and now I don't use the sub anymore when I listen to music, it's so awful ! And I only have TB-W3-871S, not Jordans !
Just my 2c
huguini said:Hi, I've have 2 jordans in VTL transmission line (Essence clones). I'm planning now to make 2 surrounds and a center. The surrounds will be Jim Griffin's minimonitors like http://www.briangt.com/gallery/jx92s .
But for the center channel I'm thinking about an enclosure like this http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=38755&highlight=jordan+jx92s but with the drive in the center of the box like the attachment, with two ports. Is it clear?
What do you think? Is that possible? I have no idea of speaker design
That's because I think that central channel deserves a "bigger" or more complete sound that surrounds, and I like that shape to be used under my screen.
best regards, and sorry for my english.
If you have enough room, and some distance behind your seat, the surrounds would probably deserve to be the same as mains. This way you may not even need the subs since you have atleast 4 speakers that go down to probably 40Hz.
