Default I Feel Another Pair...

I've gone and ordered 2 matched pairs of EL70eN from Dave.

The idea is that they will be "spares" in case I wear out the existing 4 in my "Castle" microTowers.

However, you all know what's going to happen. The EL70eNs will go in the existing microTowers on day 1, and then I will have 4 stock EL70s sitting in boxes.

I feel another pair of speakers coming on. I have no need for them, but the bug is biting me once again.

In my shoes, which EL70 project would you be looking at, and why?

Maybe a single-driver setup and leave 2 of them in boxes as "spares"....? Frugelhorns....?

These might end up being a gift for my dad some day....

The original MarKels that Dave designed for the EL70 are very good. Excellent bass and imaging are some of their attributes.

+1 for the Mar-Kel70 that Jeff mentioned above.

And probably the EL70eN will work even better on the Mar-Kel70, given the tight articulate bass and how well these cabinets "disappear".

Do the Cornu. Nothing else like it, high WAF and more bass than you can imagine.

Thanks to you and Jeff for reminding me about this. Dave has sent me the link to the "paid" version of the plans and I will give them serious consideration.

I fully expected someone to run with the title of the thread, but I anticipated at least one Pink Floyd reference by now... (A Nice Pair ?)

No. I've only done two builds so far, in fact. The "Castle" microTowers are my main units and I designed and built my own "nanoTowers" for my bedroom nanoTower Part II - Tang Band W3-881SI - YouTube

I'll look at the Maeshowe and Wessex...
