Silver Flute W14. Note that the cabinet is the same size as the Mark-Kel70mT

Default any updates on Tysen?

Hi Dave,

I recently purchased from another diyaudio member gen1 Alpair 10s (I guess that's an A10.1?), as well as a pair of 10" Vifa P25WO-8 woofers. Been searching for a suitable speaker to build, and although the A10's are probably not ideal, am interested in trying this in a Tysen type of arrangement. Any suggestions?

Dan

Tysen was designed as an illustration of a concept. Since then we have done the MTM floorstander (in this thread), an MTM stand-mount (FF85wKeN + 2 Silver Flute W14eN), a woofT for the uFonkenSET (with 2x Peerless 830870), the Facets with FF85wKeN and 4 of the Peerless (pictures of the last 2 unfinished in the 10th annual VI diyFEST thread at least), and Alpair 7.3eN with 2 SDX7eN -- probably our best speaker to date, we are holding off on pictures until they get pretty (in the works).

All you could borrow from Tysen is the idea... A10 will work nicely sealed in this case, and then a suitable box/alignment for the SEAS. Then integrate (or not). A 1st order PLLXO can likely be concocted that works out well.

Lots of people have done FASTs since Tysen was introed, so you should be able to find lots of examples for further inspiration.

IIRC, while certainly not shy in the bottom end, the original A10s might need some help in the top couple of octaves - A6M or A7.3 would probably be better candidates as mid/tweet for a FAST type ?

Yet to be clad in, and cosmetically softened, by 1/2" cedar "veneer" with edges rounded all round.

He has the A10 in hand. The others would be better (unless there was a need to push the volume). I did find the top end of the A10 not to my personal liking.

As SDX7's are no longer available, would something like a 8 in Peerless 830869 Nomex cone woofer work? They don't have the cool looking carbon cone or copper pole piece but are a tad more efficient so you may only need 1 driver per top?
