Default Madisound BK12m

A modern interpretation of a classic. Another flat-pak to increase diyers choice.

very nice & a bargain for quality - will Larry Hitch have larger driver designs from the P10 team?

It looks like a nice bit of kit. What would that classic be? I'm afraid my history isn't that good.

The historical BKs contributed basic layout and size.

Did they have a pair of these at AXPONA in Atlanta earlier this year? They sure look like a pair that Madisound had in their room. If they did, I got to listen to them.

Congratulations! That is a great accomplishment and to everyone's benefit. The quality of the woodworking looks first-rate.

1. Malibujeff, how did they sound?!

2. Dave, can you say whether MJK's software was utilized and whether Madisound has become an MJK licensee?

3. Is this plan available for purchase or exclusively available through the Madisound flat-pak project?

Thanks in advance and congratulations again. I would really like to hear these.

Can the BK be interpreted for the Alpair 7 or CHR70? I'm *this* close to getting something from Madisound again and want to try a build with a Mark Audio Alpair or CHR70.

In a word, no - but there are numerous other designs that work very well for the Alpairs, including a small (rear mouth) horn intended to be far more compliant to using a wider range of drivers of this size range, and whose name shouldn't be hard to find.
