Default EL70s have arrived!!

The large shipment arrived today so we have begun filling orders. There are a number of kit packages available and this is the best way to buy these. If there's something in the kit you don't want to use just set it aside for another project.

There are a large number of DIY build plans available which will eventually be put on CD. They will also be downloadable from the website.

One thing about the EL70 though...

I don't know how to explain it but i will try to...

When i was cutting the hole for the driver i realised it had to be VERY exact at the place where the basket is like getting bigger at the locations of the screw holes. So the screw holes get really close to the mounting hole and it actually happened to me that the screw hole went in the mounting hole so that screw became sort of useless.
And it's also impossible to use these:

And it would also be good to send one extra screw with the drivers, i had lost one and i was searching for hours after it.

But overall i am very satisfied with my EL70 in the Mar-Kel70 cabinet.

If when mounting them you place the screws in at a slight angle it helps significantly. Nothing extreme but just a slight angle when you're pre-drilling the holes before the screws. They should go in quite easily after that and have plenty to hold on to.

I ordered 4 EL-70's last night for a Coniston^2 build. This is my first foray into full range and I've got high expectations. Going to use baltic birch ply and hardwood braces. Give me a couple weeks and I'll report back.

^Get ready. Those EL70's will knock your socks off. The bass produced by them is chilling. I had to move them to a larger room because it was just too much.

Da Ya mean this one???? Suggest room treatment for dungeon rooms as the solid rock walls tend to make for a rather "live" sound. At times it can sound as if the speakers are actually screaming at you.

These drivers are interesting. In my Mar-Kel70 they produce bass that gives me headache and the cone isn't even moving anything at all!

Playing some Deadmau5 and i can play loud with lots of bass and the cone is barely moving. There is no "physical" bass but not 4" driver has that.

I say it again, these drivers are awesome for all sorts of music (maybe not the very heaviest, darkest deathmetal).

I have a question about the datasheet. I just measured mine (well, mine are a prototype) and I get very similar TSPs. Much closer than most manufacturers!!! However, Fs is 64hz but the impedance sweep on the data sheet shows it closer to 97hz. Perhaps the wrong impedance curve? Or do I not understand. Thanks.
