Kenix,

The Alpair 10.2 is an excellent driver. Looks like Blueplanet has this in stock and on the specials:

Markaudio Alpair 10 Gold Gen. 2 - Lautsprecher Selbstbau by blue planet acoustic

What amplifier are you using?

Well... I don't have any amplifier because of this is the first thing i ever will go into the music world. I only have a headset and a Asus Xonar Essence STX for sound card!

Please help me some more I have very much time.

You will definitely need an amplifier Kenix. Without that you will not be able to play the speakers. The Xonar STX has a headphone amp built in, but that is for headphones only.

A lot of people have been VERY pleased with the Frugalhorn MK3.

Frugel-Horn Mk3 Builds & Build Questions

My best advice is to read as much as you can on this forum, there are many good and very helpful people here. Participants are worldwide and there is very no prejudice that I have seen against people struggling with English. The basic opinion would be that your English is better than our Swedish! (However my French is not too bad...)

There is a lot of information to get through, but as you read order will emerge from the chaos. Don't worry about building "The Best" as you will not stop with your first set. Its like going into an ice cream store and ordering "The Best". So many flavours, you know that you'll be back!

Just start somewhere and learn from that.

The FH3 is a very decent sounding enclosure, and relatively easy to build, but not really suitable for the Alpair 10 * OTOH, the Alpair7 or CHR & CHP70 are all known to work very well in this enclosure.


* for those contemplating projects more adventuresome than simple BRs for this driver, there are a variety from which to choose -
Pensil:

Woden Samhain:

MLTLS
Greg Monfort :

Jim Griffin:

and Planet10 mini-onken variations:

http://homepage.mac.com/tlinespeaker...map-080211.pdf


no doubt many others I've missed

I can't imagine anyone's heard them all ( or even more than 2), and there are numerous factors to consider in narrowing down to a short list of appropriate candidates for any particular end user's situation.


and as to recommending amplifiers, that's a whole 'nuther gordian knot
