I mean to say that I personally prefer paper over metal. Anyone can PM me to see my frequency response and harmonic distortion measurements, but I won't post them. I just enjoy my MA speakers and have nothing to prove.

MA already has the technology (good paper cones and motors) so it is only a matter of time.

Pretty much, one needs only to research what the pioneers of audio, spearheaded by Bell Labs, concluded to most accurately reproduce all types of sound, especially human speech, singing and it wasn't paper. When they began using paper to minimize cost in mass production, the paper composition and treatment was designed to mimic the preferred materials as close as practical.

Default pick one

Here we go again. The "scientific method" which would have us all decide if our mother (or father) was the significant ancestor, rather than our father (or mother). Pick one (only) is sun worship. Ask Bill Maher.

So any suggestions for a tweeter (if I need any) to match the EL70? I would be looking for something that needed the simplest cross over possible... thanks.

I have been running mine without one and have been very happy with the sound. It would be easy to leave the tweeter out and try it first. Makes the crossover REALLY simple too!

Lol Kyle! I suppose you are right though I should try it out first, I am just wondering should I need any. I might make a matching 'box' to go on top of the FH3's just in case.

There's also the option to make a removable baffle. This way you can add a tweeter, try other drivers, and adjust stuffing. Planet10 has some photos of FH3s done this way and I think it's also shown in the plan.

Yrs I have seen that in the plans Kyle. I think I will keep it as is since I have already cut the ply.

Dave,

(First of all, hello! It has been about a year since I have been here and that is all down to you, Chris and a few others guiding me through my Castle microTower build. I have been in audio bliss ever since!)

My question is, do you still have a few virgin EL70s available?

Mine are still running great, but I know they will not live forever. I'd like to have a backup pair (or more)...
