Steve donít you ever sleep, its like 4.39am its light outside!
I have to say on a personal note I think your designs are fantastic, more than a little time consuming am sure but I believe that the interior of any enclosure is more important than the exterior, well for us DIYers anyway, The Bandor units are so modest and unknown by the mass market, thatís what I love, There the quite heroís of quality sound! Did Doreen really work for Goodmans?
Have you ever used Billís Woodmanís super dome in your speakers! I think its good but over rated and expensive!

Hi and thanks for your remarks about the speakers.

My last post was at 2.30am here so it's not that bad. I am a 'night person' though.

Doreen really worked at Goodmans. That was where she met, and later married, Ted Jordan (although the ceremony didn't take place in the factory ).

Ted was their chief designer whilst Doreen's job was between the designers and the shop floor workers to make sure that the designs were manufactureable.

Doreen still makes drive units today, of course, and IMO they're as good as it gets. I haven't tried Bill Woodman's super dome. Bandor also have an experimental 1" super-tweeter that I would like to try.

Steve:

As long as the purpose of the NXT is reflected sound, have you considered bipolar units using the Bandors instead of the NXT?

Maybe just one or two Bandor 2 inchers in the back, playing 6 or 7 dB down, (the front has four 2" Bandors).

Just a suggestion.

That's a good idea, keltic.

As soon as I get the time and opportunity I will compare an 'omni' approach similar to that you've described, the NXT layered sound approach, a rear speaker in Hafler configuration and, inspired by Sretin's postings, perhaps a combo moving coil and non-NXT panel approach.

I would like to experiment with 'ambience' but without messing up the quality of the imaging that I currently enjoy. The Hafler approach is therefore the lowest risk option and is the one that the others will have to beat.

Finding the time is the biggest problem for a small speaker manufacturer. My R & D programme is very full with continued work on enclosure materials and new drive unit development.

This is why you should get a rookie in your workshop, that can cut his teeth and earn his stripes, I know when i was a lad i was making all sorts and i dont know what it is, the young seem to have so much energy! a combo would be best at the moment, but dont get carried away with NXT less is more, i believe, Out of sight out of mind,
