Very, very nice. Very neutral sound with wide dispersion, perfect for general use, movies, music, etc. Even at such small size they have plenty of bass.

Excuse the horrible carpet, new house, in progress of creating a hifi room (woop!)

1st build, Alpair 7.3, concrete cab.

Clamps have ruined the paint so might make a new baffle of a more 'normal' shape for them.

@gm7dha: nice speakers
Did you use a concrete/stone enclosure or is it just an effect-lacquer on wood?

After a few years in the multi driver wilderness, I'm now firmly back in the single, full range driver camp, with a pair of 78L sealed cabinets housing a Fane 12-250-TC triple cone driver.

Click the image to open in full size.

Not pretty at the moment, but boy do they sound good.
I think this is a better place to post than the 12-250TC thread, as I'm only showing
rather than getting into the minutae of playing with dispersion.

Concrete enclosure with 18mm MDF back and front. The back is opened up leaving a 20mm wallb the front has a circular opening about 150mm for the driver. They are just an experiment but overall I wouldnt/couldn't say the concrete is any better than a well-made wooden cabinet - they're just very heavy and awkward to position 😂

I'll be enjoying them as is, without tweeters. They go plenty high enough for my 60 year old ears.

Heavy and awkward, yes indeed.

Next time, try a multilayer of substrate.
We do plywood, honeycombed aluminium and stone (or in your case, concrete).
That way, you could have a thinner layer of concrete and save a lot of weight.

The layering gives you the best of all 3 materials in dampening resonances at different frequencies and really helps keep distortion at a minimum.
