It wasn't the bass, as I'm using a sub and too much / not enough bass from the DNA's probably wouldn't even be noticed unless it was causing a conflict somehow.  It just sounded bad.  I noticed immediately that I didn't like it, and that's pretty unusual for me (I usually can't tell the difference).   It may have been a range of frequencies that were too loud or too quite, possibly too loud as its very possible it sounded tinny.  I didn't spend much time listening to them.  I've had those same speakers in other cabinets with moderate to good success (if I ever had superior success with them, they would still be in those cabinets) but they did not do well in the DNA.

So, why use a folded horn design if you are not all that interested in bass output I hear you thinking.  The design makes a difference in how the speaker sounds in the non-bass range too.  My best sounding speakers are a bigger set of back loaded folded horn design with the Dayton 8" full range speakers.

Anyone tried Vifa ne149? If so, how does it perform in the DNA?

Steve Deckert,

I have been considering the E.J. Jordan EIKONA 2 driver for a horn loudspeaker project.

Do you think it could work in your DNA Horn?

Cliff,
Did you ever try the E.J. Jordan EIKONA 2 in a speaker? DNA? What have you learned about them?

I am currently enjoying the Eikona 1 drivers in a VTL cabinet. Since Decware is a site that is synonymous with very nice tube equipment, I wanted to put out the warning that these Eikona drivers need a lot of power (50 watts continuous and 100 watts peak) to run these speakers properly. Their impedance shoots way up when producing low frequencies and my Mcintosh MC240 wasn't able to feed them without hearing an occassionally distorted low end. I now use a Hafler 500 solid state power amp (with my Mcintosh c20 pre amp) and am having wonderful results - a truly nice driver!!
