Nearfield listening and optimum cabinet & room acoustics ...

Hi Phil,
Re you're "eek" negative comment on Hong Kong, you're talking about my home town these 15 years! I've built more than enough full-rangers to know Hong Kong is an excellent location from which to organise this work. There are many excellent International acoustic component and assembly makers in South China. I know the good ones.

Guys
Re these drivers, its not for me to comment on their performance and price. I can state that the components for these drivers will be made in China and likely they will be assembled in China. There is no significant or comprehensive driver component production or assembly in Hong Kong.

Cheers
Mark.

Excuse me for the question, but how far away these 3" speakers should be placed, and also in what kind of cabinet, in order to properly reproduce the sound of tuba at realistic levels?

Sorry, but this is no longer single driver configuration, but just an ordinary (an mistaken) multi-way system.

Really? I thought the "fastness" of a driver is determined by the VC/motor type. How stupid I am!!

Hi Phil, no worries, thanks for your understanding.

Yup, on building in the USA. I'm working on a high-end project that would marry an Alpair driver front end (frame, cone, coil and spider) to an American built motor. The project is low key and long term as resources are limited. I'd love to team up and develop a build project in North America to make the larger Alps (particularly Alp12). It needs a US company (or guys) with driver making experience.

I also have a longer term project in the pipeline for an "all Japan" built Alp12.

Cheers

Mark.
