Post Alpair 10.2 in Existing Housing from seas bifrost

Hello,

FIRST OFF ALL I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST FOR 2013!

I took the Chance at madisound to get an pair Alpair 10.2 quit cheap.
From an earlier unfinished Project I still have an Nice Housing which i Would use for the alpair 10.2. Inside size w/h/d 167/450/264mm, volume arround 20 litre.
I would like to Cut Down the height to 350mm what reduce Volume to 15,5 litre.
Any ideas if this size works as an bassreflex or mini fonken/onkenversion.

Many Thanks in advance.

I also Try to Post an Image Off the Housing.

Klaus

Happy New Year!

Have a look at the Mar-Ken10.2 CGR plans by Planet10:

Looks like resizing your existing box is possible...

15.5 litre should work well with the A10.2. I have a trapezoid Mar-Ken that is 16 litre.

eMail me.

THere is already a 13 litre CGR specifically for the A10.2 that is free. The 16 litre one (not drawn yet) will be part of the paid planset.

Default Sketch

Hello Zman01,

any thanks for you replay but would like to use the housing more or less like it is or even better to downsize it in height.

Attached an sketch to have an idea of the dimensions.

Klaus,

If you refer to Dave's Mar-Ken10.2 CGR cabinet, the internal dimensions (HxWxD) is 395mm x 240mm x 149mm.

Looks like you will have to down size from all 3 sides to get the box dimensions right. Shortening the height to get to ~13 litres will get your box volume down to size, but the right size of slot port also needs to be worked out - maybe Dave can help there?

BTW, Dave can you please check the CGR plans - diagram shows port spacer at 50mm, while instuctions say 30mm.

Thanks.

Cheers for Dave! , helpful as always. I like the name too, he, he.

Klaus, you might as well start the driver break-in; 200 hours takes a long time... and once you get the speakers up and running, you gotta tell us how they sound.
