Everyone has a favorite what's yours?
 
This is a poll of your favorite single driver speaker and box.
Out of the driver,box combos I've heard I would have to say it's the Decware cornerhorns
A single 6" Fostex in a complex horn.
The only single speaker that does it all!
What's yours

As ever, there must be qualifications. For example, for certain program material, my uFonken's with Fostex 127's are the bee's knees, but the pair I listen to most, day in/day out, are BOFU/PE dome tweeter Half Changs.

Veravox 5S in BiB (compared to F225K/Jericho, Bandor 50mm/Balls and CSS FR125S/11L Sealed)
Best all rounders IMO, but they are no longer sold at all (and no one sells them second hand) which is rubbish as i sold them :(

Veravox 5 is excellent in the midrange but not perfect on top. A 5"er that beats it by far in this respect (but is not as good in sensitivity and freedom of compression) is the Ciare HX135. I built ceiling firing slim columns for my sister, which is not ideal, sufficient bass only if you place it close to the wall and treble not ideal since 60 of axis would be needed. I am quite sure that pyramidal shaped enclosures in a close-to-floor position with up-firing drivers would be ideal.

"ken" as in hyphenated suffix for a family of enclosures based on Dave's original mini-onken. I glibly nicknamed the version with Fostex FE127 as "Fonken" and the Mark Audio drivers logically became "Mar-Ken" followed by the driver model number. It didn't take long for things to get more than a bit confusing, especially considering the dozens of iterations that never made it past the drawing stage.
