Well, yes I remember being corrected by Bob re his impressions of the Pensil / M10-A10 - but I think Adel also referenced Jim Griffin's MLTL, and my point (clearly not well made) was with at least 3 MLTL variants cited, has anyone compared them all?

As they were all carefully designed for A10.2, difference should be minimal and comparison result will vary from place to place. Besides, Woden Silbury is mostly interested if space allowed.

As they were designed with difference goals / compromises, the differences below several hundred Hz might be more noticeable than you think - regardless of room, source, etc

yup, this type of design shares some of the room placement / space requirements of larger bipole / dipole types - as least in the sense that if you crowd them, the performance can suffer

My Pencil 10.2 has arrived and just installed my brand new Alpair 10.2 on them. As the internal walls are covered by acoustic foam, how much Polyfil should I added?

Thanks, Brian

I don't know. I didn't realise they were being produced commercially, and they shouldn't have any foam in them at all. My loathing of acoustic foam is well known and the box is not designed to use it. Rip it out, add the recommended density of damping, & adjust to your individual requirements / preferences.

Scottmoose, thanks a lot for your reply.They are custom made to my order, not ready-made product. And their accuracy is not good, hope it won't affect the sound by big margin. I will get those Polyfil a.s.a.p. as upper bass is quite muddy now. Thanks, Brian

I note that you mentioned "brand new" Alpair10.2 - they'll need full break-in per Mark's recommendations before you can assess the fill levels that you find most satisfactory.
