"soon" - that's an elastic concept -

I think you'll be pleased with the result.

How does the enable process work with a driver like this? I know you use something to coat the cone but most of the Fostex drivers are a porous material whereas the Mark Audio drivers are not. Does that change the process for you?

Could you contact us by sending a private message through diyaudio forums as we would like to get some information on how you designed the cabinets.



I'd me more than happy to share whatever info you guys would like but I believe private messaging is disabled on this forum. The Lotus BVR's were originally drawn up by Scott.

I figure I'll post this here, too, seems to apply

about 12.5 liters, tuned to 45 hz.

I think they turned out pretty darn well They sound great!

"black ash" type vinyl laminate from PartsExpress for the box, and the baffle is a couple coats of wood grain sealer, a few coats primer, a couple coats of this speckly texture stuff, and then a couple coats of flat black over top

No BSC yet, but on a desk backed up against the wall, they don't really need it. Something for future experimentation

It's kinda of amazing how versatile the CHR70 is. Small sealed to big vented and everything in between. Single and multiples, full range or paired with a woofer. A couple of tube watts to big honkin' solid-state power. It's all good.

I wouldn't say a big solid state (not with the pot wound up) especially in a large room as the driver does lose it's composure very rapidly and becomes woeful. It's not up to the CSS FR125 in that respect and that driver is not high watt friendly.

Small room + small watts = That's what I think it was designed for and take it out of that and it's .
