Treble is incomparable to my other pair of OB-RAW with ribbons, and base is incomparable with my Cerwin-Vega floor standers. But that’s PC speakers – sitting in front of me right now, playing music really-really sweet. They not take half of my room. They even not take a lot of my desk. They don’t mind to play in the corner, right against the wall.
So, one more time: thank you HareBrained, really like them.
I'm glad you enjoyed building them and how they sound. For their intended purpose, they are sweet. Thanks for building the design.

what ever the reason alpairusa had great prices on the units, and also did great commercial support, with my order delivery and redelivery and redelivery again... that's a long story of us post offices and me going on holiday in the usa...

but the guy there was so nice i simply had to spend a very good word on him.

A mate and I built 3 pr of speakers last week, 2 pr Lotus and 1 pr BIB, all for CHR-70. My mate Dave was very impressed, so was I, but I already had built a pr of Lotus previously, and was impressed to hear similar character at someone else's place with different room, amp, and wood material. He already had MDF and chipboard so we used that. Both designs sound very good. I have no idea how they compare to other designs though, but we could not fault them. The BIB build is so quick and easy. Lets just say there were lots of smiles from us amateurs...all good clean fun...

Interesting that the Lotus seems to have high WAF in my experience (based on 2 wives and one teenage girl - Daves daughter), or the quality of sound far surpassed the appearance, not sure which, maybe both

All of this is thanks to Dave, Scottmoose and GM, you guys are making a lot of people happy I am sure.

^I'm glad to see some others getting into the Lotus design. I think it's one of the best I've built so far. I love my pair!

Ian444. I see you made the single driver lotus design. A few folks that have made the dual driver version think it sounds better than the single. I've always found that what you don't know won't hurt you. If the single sounds good then having no dual version to compare it to and spoil that feeling is probably a good thing! Having said that, is there anything about your Lotus that you find lacking or think the dual version might correct? And how do they compare to the BIB's. Which do you prefer? BIB or Lotus and why?

Thanks in advance for your reply.
