Thank you for all your replies! I haven't had a chance to acquire a pair yet, so I'm settling with some eyecandy for now I've recently built two modified Zigmahornets with good results and I would like to try one with the Alpair 12P.
(I know its an old design)

A youtube vid is just like watching a speaker in a store. Even if you can't hear them, its always fun to have a look! A closeup shot with sound is always more interesting than without..
Jeff, I listen to all sorts of music, but I think a video with a good vocal and some lower mids\upper bass would show the qualities of the Alpair!

I live in Vestfold, Olaf. Ellers s skulle jeg gjerne tatt en tur

So far, I've been unsuccessful in creating a decent sounding audio clip.

I suspect that this is a fools errand. You record a high resolution driver, run it through a lossy compression algorithm, and play the results back on another driver that has its own characteristics and colorations. I doubt that you will retain any of the characteristics of the original driver.

Fool's errand pretty much describes this hobby writ large, no?

What's with the flickering video? Sounds a little better than what I had.
