A piece of bezel thick material scabbed onto the front could solve both issues.

Looking for opinions. Would alpair 6p make a good match as a center with el70 mains, or would chp70 be better, or maybe forget the whole thing?

Let me be a contrarian for a minute here and suggest that since the center contains the bulk of the important information in the front row, that an Alpair10P might be a more appropriate candidate . They sure work like a charm in a full sized box

That budgetary silliness aside, the CHP70's intentionally shelved top end might not serve the purpose without the addition of a tweeter. FWIW, I recently completed a new pair of little speakers to replace dual EL70 microtowers - using dual CHBW70 and CSS ERT26 both of which I believe Bob Reimer still has stock, as well as schematics for XO). I don't think still quite the performer that the EL70 was - most notably in the bass - but pretty darned close, and more importantly, still available.

Mark - bring back the EL70

I could swing for a 10p although I promised my wife "only one more little 4 incher." Did I say 4? I meant 6. The other danger is that I would then be unhappy with my el70s and they can't go in the back - impedance too low!

well yes, when counting the flange, the 10s are a "girthy" fit - see where this could go?
