OK I was expecting bass reinforcement to be required, but 0.5mm just seemed very small.

According to your Costs page you got the spikes from CPC. Do you have the part number for them as I can't find anything like that on their website. Cheers.

Richie, can you find anything on their site since they changed it around?

Not the easiest thing to track things down on CPC anymore.

Very neat. Looks good.

>I'm a fullrange beliver now. Which driver next...

What part of the UK are you based? If you're holidaying in the Lakes any time and fancy hearing the Jordan JX92 MLTL, let me know.

Haha Nick, some things I find much easier now, others are just as bad as the old pice of dirt website. One thing they got rid of which I found extremely useful is the product map or whatever it's called, e.g. connectors > jack > 3.5mm so you can backtrack to a wider range from just one product that you like, if you aren't sure what category it may be in (and lets face it CPCs categorisations are not a strong point).

It made me cringe when they launched the website making out like they had developed if after listening to all the feedback. My a*** -- it's just the parent company's corporate website.

Vikash, thanks for the link.

And now that Jordan's have been brought up, I've a pair of JX92S running in my lounge right now and they are great, best imaging/soundstage I've heard. (Demos are welcomed as I'm developing a system around them.) Shame I've got to give them back in a while

Looking at 3" drivers on Spectrum Audio's site I see that the Hi-Vi Research B3S has an Xmax of 3.0mm. It's only 20.50 as well, though its high qts may forbid its use in the monitor box.

I've since been playing around with the notch filter and I'm not convinced by it The flatter response is welcomed, but it also sounds a touch less revealing too. I may have to try some more exotic notch components to see what happens...
How does your notch compare with the one in the pic?

TB webpage confirms 0.5mm xmax. You need a sub.
I think TB XMAX is one way.

The Aura NS-3 seems to be another contender in the 3" driver sweeps.

Reading between th elines it was the clear winner in the group test John K did (of the 2 he figured were standouts this one needs no filter). I've a pair but haven't listened to them yet. I do expect a pair of the kits to build the ones pictured below (consider it a tease -- i'll leave it to the member responsible to announce his plans when he is ready). I will let you know how they sound when i get to listen to them. One thing for sure is that they are quite pretty.
