Default EL70 Floor-standing Choices

Ahoy,

I like the idea of building a nice thin floor-standing speaker with a single EL70 and I am wondering if anyone has impressions of the Wooden Design Derwent, and any of the P10 designs (Floorstander Mar-Kel70, Microtower single driver)? All of them have nice simple designs as far as build goes. I could not find any builds of the Floorstander Mar-Kel70.

Thanks!

Kyle

You are only the 3rd or 4th person to see the plans so far...

Oh, I see. Anyone done a beta build or is it just modeled?

Converted from the Mar-Kel in the same way that the Fonken FS Mk2 was.

Bernie has wood cut for the trapezoid floorstander.

I should mention that this is the same floorstander, but with a sloped front so that the filled cavity on the bottom is not needed to get the drivers firing in the vicinity of your head.

Kyle,

The Half Towers (MT with single driver - EL70 or CHR-70) are no slouches btw.

Hey Dave,

Do you think there will be a revision to the Mar-Kel Floorstander after Bernie builds the trapezoidal version?

Only if it sucks... but with are track record probability of that is low.

Cool, I am going to start a build soon. Are there any parts I should leave exposed or accessible before I seal it up if there's any bad habits that need fixing?
