The cost would be much lower with the TB driver. However, the TB driver has a relatively high Fs ~110Hz.
871 has Fs more like 135 Hz... how about the Mark M modified TB?

I do have an Adire AV3 bi-pole in the works... (it may need a T thou)

I'd say the most important thing is to standardize on the driver, not the configuration. That way one could buy say 4 or 6 drivers, and try out bi-pole or BSC filter, transmission line or reflex, etc..
Multi channel or stereo

All for the cost of a couple of sheets of MDF.

Here's Marks Tangband mod thread:

http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...212#post458212

It seems the cheaper and more DIY choice, BUT can people consistantly mod the drivers so opinions are valid?
-then again are opinions that valid anyway?....

Hi,
Considering the above don't you think that it would be difficult to standardize on a modified driver ?
I'd say that in the case of a reference speaker, an "unmodified" Fostex (or other) driver would be a better choice.

The Mark M 881 is really more classed as a mid-tweeter (and i got some to try), but for a reference broject, something with a better bottom to top balance is probably called for... i think that the FE103 or FE127 are the best candidates to my mind... there are more expensive drivers that cover the range, but, like the 2-way reference already established, i think a modestly priced driver for a modestly priced system is appropriate.

And as has been demonstrated -- at least with the FE103 -- there are a wide variety of cabinets that work. With the FE103 there is also a whole family of variants to make things richer.

That was one of the speakers in my mind.... the Solo 103 another.
