Jordan EIKONA 2 drive unit
The Eikona 2 is the latest drive unit from EJ Jordan Designs. Building on the success of predecessors such as the famous Jordan JX92S, the Eikona 2 is a world-class, fullrange drive unit capable of covering the whole spectrum of orchestral music. It is ideally suited to a range of systems, from high-end valve to modern, streaming audio and AV. It's ability to deliver superb sound from a small enclosure makes it ideal for home theatre and satellite systems. Used as part of a sophisticated installation, it enables high-end sound to be streamed throughout the home without all the gulk of conventional loudspeakers.
The Eikona 2 features:
- a circular, diecast chassis for ease of mounting
- refined, carefully-balanced performance parameters
- wide bandwith performance from small enclosures
- extended, natural high frequency response
- true, wide bandwidth performance from 30Hz to over 20kHz in appropriate enclosure
- dependable, high quality components and manufacture
The Jordan Eikona 2 is designed in the UK by Ted Jordan and manufactured in Denmark by Scan-Speak A/S. This combination of the UK's legendary loudspeaker designer and Europe's leading drive unit manufacturer has resulted in a true high-end, audiophile loudspeaker.
The Eikona 2 costs £155.00 (excluding VAT) and is available immediately. To order, please see the CONTACT page.

These specifications are from production units. They are a combination of direct measurement and computer measurement For more details of our reservations about computer measurement, please refer to our article The Parameter Game and the Jordan Manual Chapter 6 both of which can be found in ARTICLES.
Meaurements are on-axis rather than the 10 degree off-axis measurements which are often used (but not acknowledged) to give a more flattering result.
