Is it me, or could those diagrams be wrong?

In so much as it looks like the 10P goes lower than the 12P. Can't be right, can it? Could they be wrongly labelled and basically swapped?

Yes A10p goes lower then A12.2p. A10.3 goes lower than A10p. A10.2 goes lower than 10.3.

Hi Karl, guys
Apologies for later replies, I'm in the middle of building 3000 Alpair 10 drivers for a company in Finland. Got to complete this production be end of next week.

RE small(ish) closed boxes for studio monitor purposes, I'm not sure exactly what your trying to achieve. If you want high power handling, single full rangers aren't a the right choice.

How big is your room space?
What's your amp?
Whats your source?
What sort of music do you play?
What's your listening distance?
How loud do you normally listen (low, moderate, or shredding your ear drums)?

Its important to assemble a "system" with marching components and fits your purpose. Doing it piece-meal runs risks and potential disappointment.

Thanks
Mark.

But what I meant is that on the schemos ALL the 10P volume variations go lower than the corresponding ones for the 12P with almost the same volume. Surely the 12P given same volume box would go lower, not the other way round?

Hi Mark,

Thank you very much for coming back whilst being so busy. That is some order!! Good times!

I haven't got time right this minute to go into detail, but will come back to you.

It would be great however if you could confirm whether those two posted box volume plots for the 10P and 12P are indeed correct, as it seems to me they might have been swapped by accident? Why would the smaller driver go lower given the same closed box volume?

lol....well, from those it looks like the 10P basically reaches lower than the bigger 12P full stop. Smaller driver reaching lower than larger driver seems counter intuitive, is all.
