Default Lowther PM6c enclosure

Hi, I am new here, I have a pair of PM6c drivers and I want to build an enclosure for these, I have no idea which would be good, can anyone suggest and point me to a website with some plans. My room is not to big and I used to have the accusta 115 but these were too wide and I could not open my door properly. Any help would be really appreciated, many thanks.

Hi ludwigmaria,

Maybe Tony Gee's Solo-206 enclosure, it is designed for the Fostex FE206E, but, if you are looking for a reduced size enclosure for your Lothers, it may be of interest:

Humble Homemade Hifi

Otherwise, you may look at the possibility to use the PM6Cs open baffle with an additional woofer section, or an MLTL (mass loaded transmission line).

What size can you put up with?

A horn enclosure (which is what they need) is never small, but at least more recent designs can be more slender than the wide Acousta (which has a certain old-fashioned charm on it's own, if you have the space!).
For example, check out the Bicor 250 or somewhat smaller Bicor 200. You should put these against the wall, rather some 20cm from it !
Bicor 200 / Bicor 250 / Fidelio

The Bicor 200 or 250 should work well with the PM6c.
I don't have detailed plans. Lowther can provide them to you.

I built some 208 Sigma cabs for my Fostex 206E's. I picked up some PM6c's and tried them in the 208 sigma cab. They sounded ok, but the bass was lacking and they didn't really work. I would think the same could be said for the 206 Solo cabinet.

I did some research to see what I would need to build to get the Lowther's to soound as good as the Fostex. I reckon the Big Fun Horn, would do it.

Now that I think about it, an MLTL could also be interesting. Now I've found specs for an MLTL with the DX2 and DX3 drivers on the qurter wave site, but not for one with PM6C. perhaps someone knows how to build an MLTL with this driver?
