I have been reading for about 5 hours of this day about ANs and other OB FRs. Cant wait to see what Mr. Pass does with his and what his impressions are. It seems that most people with an opinion on the ANs have never heard them and a few people who have built enclosures have been told that what they are hearing really isnt as good as they are claiming! Well, I believe these can work well. I was considering OB but saw a post where a young DIYer was really impressed with the imaging he got using the CSA provided 2.8 design. I have more reading to do but for the speakers first enclosure I will probably end up OB since it will be so easy to give it a shot.

Has anyone seen any really good and educational threads about OB for the AN speakers in general or AN 12" specifically?

Mr. Pass will you be using the CSA provided OB design in your testing for all 6 AN speakers?

I had one of the twins make a large stock of baffles last summer, and
my plan is to work through those. I pretty much have learned what
works best for me in a baffle, and I have also worked up a set of
electronics that helps me get what I want. All this is coming to
some sort of fruition shortly, especially after this weekend, where I,
my son Colin, and two nephews carved most of the rest of the wood
for 25 remaining pairs.

So it's coming along, and I intend to include 6 pairs of AN, along
with numerous pairs of Lowthers, Fostex, Feastrex, and Moth, the
bulk of them mated with woofers.

Well, Roscoeiii... looks like we will have some good information about our new ANs soon from Mr. Pass! My bet is it will be the best evaluation of the ANs in OB yet on DIYa.
Thanks Mr. Pass for your response and for giving the ANs a shot.
Sincerely
Uriah

Certainly anxious to see your results, but not trying to be pushy at all. Just glad someone is doing something critically with the ANs.
Sincerely

I have some AN Super 8's in the Commonsense Audio recommended large Bass Reflex boxes. I really like them a lot. I use them with vintage solid state equipment- Marantz 3800 Pre-Amp, Hafler XL-280 Power Amp, Cambridge Audio CD, and Project Model 1 Turntable.

I installed the drivers in the boxes from CA plans that I had buit by a cabinet maker. So far they are the best speakers that I have ever had. ( I have not owned any high end audiophile speakers to compare them to) Still, they sound great to me.

The project has gotten me interested in DIY audio and I am now planning to build an amp and some BIB speakers.

I've had a pair of the Super 8's in sealed boxes used for testing
FW amplifiers for a long time. I plan on moving them to open
baffles soon.

Default Sealed Box AN speakers

Hi Papa,

How do the AN Super 8s in sealed boxes compare with the other full-range drivers you've used and liked?

I just heard the Fostex 206E with an F1 and loved the combo (which I expected given the testing you showed in your 6moons article on the F1).

Hopefully I'll get my AN Super 12 ported boxes (Common Sense's design) built in the next few weeks.

And Urich, your speakers look great. Ready to give any listening impressions?

Looking forward to hearing what everyone has to say when the time is right.

-Roscoe
