Default DIY planar magnetic

Several years ago Speaker Builder magazine ran an article detailing a DIY planar magnetic build. It was a two-way design using a 10" woofer for frequencies below about 400Hz. Anyone recall the article or have access to it?

The articles were published in 1995/1996. Attached is a pic of the 1995 cover.
I used to have a copy, but couldn't locate it last time I looked for it.

D. Patten, "A Push-Pull Planar Speaker Quest, Part 1", Speaker Builder, No. 8, (1995).
D. Patten, "A Push-Pull Planar Speaker Quest, Part 2", Speaker Builder, No. 4, (1996).

I believe these were the forerunner to the PS40.

Default planar

Why don't you build a full range magnetic planar? A lot easier, and no crossover.

Default Bolserst thanks for the info.

I built a pair but haven't used them for a while because the room's not big enough. I was thinking about reviving them anyway.

If you're still looking I could scan a copy for you. I don't know if there is a copyright problem with attaching it, but it is ~ 20 years old, I doubt the successor to Speaker Builder would care. Let me know. Scott

I scanned the two articles and emailed them to the 2 DIY'ers above. The file sizes are a bit large to post. Anyone else? Scott
