They look a really neat job.

As for the gushing ... I've had my MLTLs up and running for a week using these drivers. I can confirm that the imaging is just incredible.

What strikes me is the clarity, particularly when voices sing in harmony. These little guys rival my Lynn Olsen Ariels in musicality, but because of the sub, the bass goes close to an octave lower.

What did you do about BSC? I've got these pretty close to the back wall. I think I could use a little lower ohmage resistor with the 1.5mH inductor. I'm using a 3.9 ohm resistor. I tried bypassing the BSC entirely, but that was not good.

Hi Dave

No BSC, just wire straight to the amp. I'm using the taller MLTLs (the 48" versions) and they don't seem to need any frequency compensation, even out in the room. Have you tried them without? I'd have thought that used with a sub you could get away without it.

BTW, regarding soldering the terminals, I'm a fan of Wondersolder, not because of any claimed sonic benefit but because I've always found it easier to use (soldering is not my favourite activity). I guess any lead-free solder would have similar benefits.

(I have to admit that the MLTLs are currently connected via 5amp mains cable. I was planning to sort out that sort of thing once I tried them to make sure they worked - I've been enjoying them so much I haven't got round to it yet.)

Okay, okay. I bypassed the BSC circuit with battery clips. It sounds great, straight out of the box, as it were.

The drivers do require burning in, so that may be why they sound better now without BSC. (Although I didn't find mine took the hundreds of hours some reviews have claimed - within an hour and they were producing bass.)

Hi hm

Are the plans for the horn available as a download? What sort of bass does the design aim for (cut off frequency)?

They look an interesting design.

Colin

I thought Wondersolder was just relabelled Ersin multicore....


It's a Wonder that they can charge so much for it.

Have you done any response testing? Or are you doing it by ear only? I am curious to see what they actually show in data.
