Hi Norelco,

I have a pair of Philips AD12202 similar to your Norelco AD5200. I fitted them in a Backloaded Horn Enclosure. They produce very good sound. Warm, smooth and rich bass. The enclosure is emulated JBL C34 design. The following is the enclosure design:

Good luck!!! Cheers!!!:D :D :D

Hi Norecol,

The Philips AD 12202 is quite easy to drive with most tube amps (300B, 6v6, EL84, Darling amp 1626 etc...). I do add a super tweeter to cover the high range as it roll off at 12,000hzs.

The amp in the photo is Consonance M99 plus, Rated at 20W. Very sweet and smooth sounding amp. Your Dynaco ST70 should have no problem with the AD5200.

You can see the enclosure plan at this link:

Good Luck!!! Cheers!!!
:) :) :)

Thank you very much simei.. ;), im so very excited to hear this speaker.. by the way.. did you put damping material inside???

More thanks again & regards..

Hi Norelco,

I put rock-wool in the enclosure (as indicated in the attached picture) as damping material. It is advised that you don't put too much damping in the enclosure as it may make it sound dead.

It is also advisable to use 3/4" plywood to make the box.

Good luck!!!:D :D :D

Can I revive this thread?

I have a few AD5200M drivers I've been wondering what to do with.

Has anyone tried these drivers in the JBL34 cabinets?:)

I happen to have a 5200M sitting here at my desk. I just ran some measurements. Someone should be able to help you use them to figure out an appropriate enclosure:

Re=4.72 ohms
Fs= 43.07 Hz
Mms= 32.96 grams
Vas = 183.1 Liters

On axis 1W/1M:
