I believe that he meant my M10-A10 cabinet. The answer is yes, all three, A10.2, A10(M).3 and A10P(.1) will work in that cabinet. Each requires a different port length, a perhaps a bit of fiddling with damping. Turns out that the A10P is happiest in that cabinet. It is a bit too small for the A10.2, but for the A10P, it is just right.

I'll need a new living room or wife before I attempt the FHXLs. She says my speakers take up enough space as it is. Though I suppose it's not bad to have a new one waiting in the wings...(speaker, not wife)

So Bob how are those 10p + Dayton's coming along? Inquiring minds want to know. After all you're not the only one who enjoys those 32' Organ stops.

The Dayton's are sitting in a corner and the 24mm panels next to them. Life and a couple of commissions halted the project. I'll be on vacation for two weeks and then I can get back to the project, if I don't get more commissions.

For your enjoyment, the mahogany speakers are M10-A10's loaded with A10P's. The customer demanded the drivers be at 36", so the bottom 4" of the cabinets are filled with styrofoam blocks.

Apologies Bob, but the other driver you illustrated is a FR competitor. Members who wish to see all Bob's excellent work:

Gorgeous finish. I don't know if the supra baffles make any difference in the sound but they certainly look great.

yeah, let's start a new conversation on that - the plywood/MDF , bracing techniques / grilles or not debates are getting a bit tiresome - and this is coming from a guy who loves to beat a dead horse as much as anybody


if nothing else the elliptical SBs do add a nice aesthetic touch - nice work Bob

I don't know the answer either. My logic says that the two 3/4" roundovers equate to a 1 1/2" roundover, which is close to the magic number of 2", which is generally accepted as being effective.

On my to-do list is build a box with the 1/4" raised edges and grill, rout the edges square, and finally rout a 3/4" roundover. Take measurements. Might actually show something.

Not to be a pest Bob, but, how are those FAST speakers coming along with the A10p's and Daytons?
