I was asking myself the same thing, if indeed that is a Pensil A12 in the picture. Smaller drivers have better imaging in general so not surprising.

The pensil's sound better in the bass department but the crispness of the MA 7.3,even in a foam core box, really shines. I will work crossover experiments while woofers are breaking in.

Is your enclosure sealed? Interested to know how you find the bass once they're in a ported or something enclosure.

It was "sealed" but then I cut a couple of crude ports in the front of each. It was an improvement. Inserted paper towel rolls and another improvement! It's a great way to learn but the WAF is a new low.

WAF can be high with foam core wall mount cornu horns. Hey at least they are not full BLH with front tractrix horns I read somewhere those were a sure sign of either celibacy or imminent divorce

I did some sims of this and decided 55 litres would work well.

Dave, was that ported or sealed? That's a fairly large speaker, so hopefully ported. Lots of bass??

Ported, aligned for high aspect ratio vents. actually smaller than what i'd use sealed (60 litre). Sealed Q = 0.5 is over 100 litres.
