to paraphrase Bob & Jim after some extending listening to numerous variations of EL70 from mini-monitors to dual front firing, to bipole BVR & the micro-tower pipes, what we have here is a chameleon

FWIW, my personal favorite (to date) was the "castle" microtower - EnABLed, wired in series, and driven by a highly modified ST70 (mr Geek's "Dynamutt") - Gregg, please post a picture and description of the driver stage

So I've been reading a lot about the EL70 and CHR-70. Besides teh construction details and $10 can someone break down the appreciable differences in performance between these two drivers?

Sorry for being naive; I'm new here

I don't know about a tractrix, but Scottmoose & i are detailing a large rear-loaded horn for the EL70 called Maeshowe.

The short version. Based on the same frame, the EL70, the CHR-70 is metal coned. Both are fairly neutral, but each tends a little bit towards the sterotypes for each material.The EL70 is also more efficient.

Preference will bend to your tastes, my personal preference tends towards the EL70 but i enjoy both (EnABLed of course ).

Got some questions about the EL70.

Is the EL70 "warmer" than CHR-70?
Which one gives most bass?
Dave, at what price do you sell your treated EL70's?

Treated EL70eN are $180 USD / matched pair. I might have to adjust that given the continued decline of the USD.
