Default Speaker for an Aleph


Iím looking for suitable drivers (DIY speaker) to be used with Aleph amplifier. Currently Iím using Vifa D27TG and P17WJ (88dB).

If Iím not mistaken, the Zen1 was designed for 94dB+ and the Zen4 was for 92dB+. I donít know with Aleph, but they must be more or less in the same category.

Anyone knows suitable drivers for the Aleph? Preferably from Seas product lines, or Scan-Speak. I choose those brands simply because I think I can find those drivers more easily.

And how about ready built speakers? Which one do you think will be a good upgrade? (I donít want the expensive one, but I want a real upgrade). Preferably Klipsch, JMLabs, or KEF (No, in fact any brand will do as long as it is locally available)

The last one, how about full range like Lowther (104dB)? If I bought this driver, donít you think that I will leave the Aleph and go to SOZ?

Look, Iím just trying hard to utilize the VIFA (on the corridor of the single ended MOSFET design). Or just want to workout the Aleph, which is said to be the best solid state design available, which has not been proven true in my system configuration.

Thankís for the info.

The website is in the Nordic area (I donít know where it is) and using non-english, so I searched for ďthor speakerĒ in google, and found a TL (Transmission Line) speaker. Unfortunately I donít want to get involved with wood working exercise.

But the drivers used in the THOR reminded me with the FROY. This is the one I wanted to build before I accidentally bought the Vifa. The Excel drivers are rated for 86.5dB and 88dB for the tweeter. Not the specs I have been looking for. The drivers are also a lot more expensive than the Lowther, creating a big question as of whether it will give the performance Iím looking for.

For me, 5 Watts is more than enough. But the vocal must be sweet (like in tubes; the P17WJ is the worst), and the speaker must be capable of exposing any single weak signal with great dynamics, especially in the low end (where I have never achieved with tube designs)

There will be no problem with the sound quality of the Seas units they sound simply superb. The excels this is with mag cones anyway.

But the compromise is that the seas excel drivers are low efficiency.
