Earl,

have you considered trying to deal with one of the european distributors and arranging a lower rate? Maybe you could achieve a compromise as you wouldnt be taking their sales and they would be making money where they might not have if you provided an export?
I'm not trying to make work for you, this is just an idea i thought I'd throw into the wind.

Cheers

Nick.
I think working through B&C, which I am doing, is the right move.

I had not considered the 16 ohm to be and issue, but I can see that it is. I'll just change the design to the 8 ohm version - its no big deal.

10PS26 - 23
DE250 (8Ohm) - 22

I spoke to the UK distributor for B&C and they would only quote list prices to me, very disappointing as they are only about 5 minutes from my house.

Hi Nick,

Which supplier are you talking about? The prices did not come out right, just question marks and 23, 22 in the text?

About a distributor: You just wrote what I was almost on my way writing in my last message to Earl. I thought I should leave the thinking to Earl, but good now you put the question in the air

Prices were

10PS26 - 85.23 GBP
DE250 - 79.22 GBP

These prices are from 2 different suppliers

www.proaudioparts.co.uk
www.surreysoundandlight.co.uk

Even with delivery costs, it would be the cheapest option for me to buy from seperate suppliers as there is no bulk order discount.

Nick.

Default Update on Nathans

I have now completely worked out the details on making the Nathan baffles and they are coming out quite well. I have made about a dozen baffles all with good consistancy and quality. There can sometimes be some small surface defects, but these can easily be filled in with bondo or some surfacing putty and sanded smooth. The Poly waveguides are really quite a nice improvement. I will start shipping the kits next week when I have caught up on some stand alone waveguide orders.

Dr. Geddes,

Would this be usable in an apartment? How far from the wall should these speakers be placed?

Thanks,
Dinesh

These speakers will work even better the smaller the room when compared to anything else with a very wide directivity.

Earl,

Do you specifically mean the Nathan 10? I take it you have now a working model that you have compared to the Summas? Or it just the 10 inch waveguide that is complete?

Anand.

Am I reading this right? Nathan 10 kit and Abbey 12 kit is available from AI in Thailand. What about drivers? Is it available in Thailand as well. If it is, I am in.

The entire line of ESP products are available in Thailand through www.AI-audio.com. However they are not the kits that I sell here, although the designs are identical - only the cabinet construction is different. But Ai has not agreed to make the kits. You need to contact Kenny at kenny.jackel@ai-audio.com and ask him if he will make kits available to you. If there is only one buyer in thailand then this probably won't occur, but enough customers might interest him.
