Guess I will resurrect this thread. Only just discovered the Alpairs which at the moment I am liking more than my Bastanis

They were CNC'd out of 40mm MDF & sprayed white.

The sub is an AE Dipole 18 actively driven by a Berhinger iNuke with built in DSP. Crossing at 140Hz suits me, but its really easy to integrate the sub using the Behringer software in real time from listening position with a laptop and to compansate for room nodes.

I have not gone for a full H-frame due to room considerations. I have also tried the Goldwoods in this application with equally great results.

Ciao Guglielmo

These are the 12p's. I chose them for the paper cone & efficiency......

Cheers

Vic

Goldwood GW-1858

Similar crossover to AE's, but all these parameters easily adjustable in real time with Behringer to suit.

At the moment I've a pair of Hawthrone SSI 10" with Goldwood GW-1858 in H-frame but in the future I'd like to try Alpair 12P.
Did you make any comparison between Hawthrone SSI, Bastanis and Alpair 12?
What do you think about?

I did comparison in another thread.

I found the Hawthornes to be too laid back with loss of micro detail. The Bastanis excel in this. In my case too much & unforgiving of some material to become tiring.

The Alpairs seem to give a nice balance in my system....plenty of detail and never tiring. Also more coherent being a single point source. I have been using for 3 months now & cannot find anything I dont like about them!
