Default Pensils for Alpair7p, CHN-70

Here is the 1st pass of the Pensil for Alpair 7p.

I have the Pensil N70 almost done, needs some detail, if anyone wants to forge ahead, email me for it

Is this expected to be better than the CHR70.3a on pensil enclosure too?

Thanks Dave,
would it be okay to place the driver on the "side" instead of the front?

No one has listened to the CHM70 yet, so that is unknown. It will depend on how much the lessor basket holds them back, and how much difference the papercone makes, that last could well come down to taste.

That would also accommodate offsetting & mirror imaging placement of drivers

Sure. You'll have different baffle loading / diffraction effects, but as far as internal box loading is concerned, should be fine.

Should be. You'll be the first to try it though, so you can let us know.
