Default Coral 10CX-501

Hi folks,
I was able to pick up these drivers, Coral 10CX-501s, for less than a couple of coffees and a donut. They seem to be in quite good shape and I'm wondering if anyone out there has had any experience with these drivers. Are they worth investing some time to build proper enclosures for them. They came with the enclosures but I would prefer to tap into any potential that a good enclosure design may hold for them. On that note can anyone suggest a properly designed enclosure for them. You can find the specs through the link below.

Please be patient with me while I reframe my question. My first FR project was utilizing Fostex FE167E drivers in a ML TQWT based on Martin King's design:


I'm certainly happy with the imaging, clarity and soundstage that resulted from this exercise. At times, depending on the nature of the music being listened to, I do miss the dynamic fullness, particularly in the lower frequency scale that two way speaker systems offer. My question is whether these Corals have the potential to add to the dynamics while maintaining the precise imaging, clarity and soundstaging that my fostex based has accmplished.

Any opinions would be very much appreciated.

In theory it will, but 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder', so cobble together a couple of recommended vented cabs and you tell us.

Loud is Beautiful if it's Clean! As always though, the usual disclaimers apply to this post's contents.

Thanks for your reply GM,
I was corresponding with Kim from the Eastmarine website that I've cited and his reponses were quite helpful. He did suggest a closed rather than ported enclosure that would serve to tighten the bass. He gave me some suggestions for cabinet dimensions and design. I'll build it and see what comes out of it.
