I'll tell you sometime after i hear them. Chris may have them mounted and listened s bit, but there is no sense reporting until thay are broken in.

They should work fine in FH3.

Hi Mr.Scott,
Can you please advice how the sound of Maop10 and which cabinet you are using with? do we have to modify original cabinet for Maop series or using standard such as pensil or fgmk3.
Thanks

See Alpair 10 Gen. MAOP Prototype TW-1 for my views. These are amongst my favourite wideband drive units, and by far my favourite wideband driver of this size, since it suits what I happen to want from a drive unit of this type / size very well. I am not using them at all at present owing to a lack of space. When I do, they will go into simple sealed boxes.

None of the Alpair 10s work in FH3; they are physically too large to fit, and their Vas mandates a larger enclosure. They should work well in any of the existing designs for the 10.2 though.

Hope that helps
Scott

Default Initial impressions - MAOP7

Stone cold dead stock in MarKen7T enclosures, driven by 6CA7 SE amp, only about 6 hours playing time today (Sunday)

I might just want to reconsider writing off this little room for moderate listening levels, or forsaking any of my tube amps.

Way to early to seriously assess these, but one thing's for sure - far less hurtful out of the box than a pair of F-ex something or others.

Still a bit closed in terms of soundstage dimension and I'm not riding them hard yet - gonna be an interesting couple of weeks.

Mr Dave hasn't heard them yet (our locations and schedules conflict with day-time listening), and I've been spending a bit more time with them over the past weekend, but it's too soon to reach a conclusion. - I've made too many snap assessments from initial impressions in the past that I've come to regret.

A quick background is that they followed a pair of bipole EL70 Microtowers that I'd used in an open floor plan room for a couple of years now, so I'm not only listening to the new drivers during their break-in, but also trying to forget what the dispersion pattern and extended LF response of the former enclosure brought to the party.

That last part is much harder than one might imagine.

Neither has the opportunity arisen to directly compare them to stock A7.3 in comparable enclosure, which would be my personal litmus test.

I'm very excited about the MAOP drivers. I'd definitely like to get my hands on a pair of the Alpair 7's.

If you promise your best behavior, maybe you could attend a short session this Saturday, and bring your own 7s over for comparison. Without prejudicing things, I'd anticipate that the drivers should make more of a difference than the Bamboo vs plywood from which the respective enclosures are fabricated.
