Default Dec 14, A10.2, A6p, A6m have hit Madisound

The Mark Audio shipment has arrived earlier today at Madisound.

A6 metal is, i understand, in short supply. If that's what you've been waiting for grab em now.

A10 should be available with loose bezel cover, make sure to specify
Some A12s with loose cover too.

I'm already 1st in line.

dave

Yes chaps,
Alp6M - I should have made more. Also Alp6P. I still have some stock of parts so will try to make more drivers in Jan.
North America - talk to Madisound (Brian or Adam)
Europe - Talk to Blue Planet Acoustics (Nick or Thorsten)

At HK airport, 10 mins to boarding, must go>>>>>>>>>>

Happy Christmas
Mark.

I'd rather not use it. Althou it stiffens & damps the bezel a bit, its primary purpose is cosmetic. It makes the driver wider & requires a deeper rebate (so a tight baffle becomes even tighter, and doesn't leave a whole lot of meat on an 18mm baffle to suppirt the driver. The biggest thing thou is that it creates a ring that bumps up 1-2mm . No bezel cover gives you almost flat from the surround to the baffle.

Hi Woody.
Dave's mostly correct although the primary reason for the bezel is to increase damping and stiffening so where possible, please use the bezel.

For all Alpairs, its vital to minimize the side wall depth and round off the rear of the opening. Alpair's generate a large back wave from the rear of the cone. It's vital to keep baffle side-wall profiles to a minimum. So recessing a new Alpair 10 into an 18-mm baffle should leave you with a (from my memory) 7-mm side-wall that is best rounded off (inside edge of baffle) with the bezel attached.

Must dash, I'm now having a few day's off before returning to HK.

Cheers

Mark.
