Thanks for the first hand info BOB ! What price do you pay? What box do you use? Stuffing? etc
Thanks for input, Gustavo

Thanks spence!
What are your thoughts on listener/speaker orientation and directivity?
IMO the Alpair 10 is just on the edge of being too critical to the listening position. So since the 12 has an even bigger cone, will it not direct even more sharply?

Did you read Bob's 2nd post where he states what he's using them in (his company's horns)?

Read it. Am I supposed to draw some conclusion from his post regarding my previous question?

Sorry, didn't see your post, was in relation to Gustavo's above yours. WRT beaming, FWIW, I've found the A12s no more directional than the A10; perhaps a touch less so.

Thanks, I was not aware his company made Horns.

Strange thing is that Alpair 10 has nicer SPL curve and lower Fs.

A12 : Mark's new Alpair 12

A10 : Alpair 10 Full Range | Markaudio

There must be difference in measurement techiques?
