Sounds like you maybe need a custom version of one of the Mar-Kels

look again at the mini (mMarKel70)

http://homepage.mac.com/tlinespeaker...map-231009.pdf

don't let the size of the box fool ya - they are much simpler to build than the big brother "prime" Mar-Ken, and certainly thana stacked lamination BLH - there are flat-pak kits available for the mini

I am in 100% agreement with others here that the EL70 needs a large box. I'm also totally in love with this driver.

But, can I suggest a small sealed box if using it as a desktop setup. Mine is 7L iirc. It's quite high q. Maybe 0.75 or 0.8. You could go a little bigger possibly... But here's the best part. Since you're using a computer, you can eq the bass back to flat. And you can do it all the way down to 20hz.

Depends though how much amp power and how loud you need to go. This way is certainly not an effecient way to make bass.

Here's a pick.

Click the image to open in full size.

That's a 17" monitor I think?? Not a bad size really. And that was 3/4" material I used, which probably isn't necessary with adequate bracing, but I got it for free. Simple to build too.

If you don't eq it though, beware, the bass is very lacking

yah, I knew that...

under 5 liters IIRC ( resistive venting helps with the bass here) 15mm board more than adequate with bracing as drawn, and particularly for near field computer use, even 5 or 6 watts of Tripath power should suffice - won't peal the paint or break your ears, but that'd be silly to do, wouldn't it?

OK guys, just built the Coniston and then Consiton^2. Coniston^2 is muddied wiring both drivers in parallel, but i love the bass, so maybe low passing the one FR until will be the ticket. Dave says they really respond to eNabling, not that i doubt him, but any personal opinions or stories of times long past to share. Probably sending one pair to him to get the treatment. Will keep them for upcoming FAST project. Sorry for slightly OT reply!

If you buy the pair direct from him, he matches their T/S parameters also. He can tell you more though. His stock might also be running dry
