I prefer raspberry ripple.

I wonder what Eminence could do with a different set of design criteria -no whizzer, different motor & VC former -possibly a decoupled cone. I had chance to hear the Hammer driver they built & it wasn't bad -still room for improvement though. And they do know what they're doing.

As I recall from the Hammer Super12s I heard, the woofer was the best part of the system. Eminence's engineering acumen and parts bin are sufficiently wide/deep enough that they are certainly capable of great products, but while I've not heard Dave's latest tweaked out version, the 12LTA wasn't my favorite large whizzer coned unit. Not than anyone gives a rip, but I'd probably have to say the smaller SEAS FA22 was more to my taste in that category

Much better sonically than the 12LTA.

That I can believe; the FA22's a nice unit of the type. Ed's sounded good when I head them a few years back.

Hey Dave,

Any experience shipping to europe? (Denmark specifically) Do you know roughly what the shipping would be for a pair of Enabled Alpair 10.3s? I am thinking hard about building a set of frugal XL's since trying a simple foam core 0.4x karlsonator with a faital 3FE25 this weekend and hearing that sweet midrange!

Best,
Silas

Silas,

Yes, i have shipped quite a few drivers to Europe and to Denmark in particular. email me for details. i’d have to look into my notes to get a proper shipping weight to calculate postage.

I will be MIA today so won’t get at it till tomorrow.

A10PeN is quite sweet in FHXL.

dave
