No need to be shy linking to other sites. Here is the link Alan sent me Building a Paul Hynes SE1 Power Amplifier

If you are going to get another pair of A10, do it quick, the A10.2 is more efficient, slightly different TSP, better, and won't match match up all that well.

Dave,

In that case the Alpair10s can stay where they are in the Jaguars, it will have to be 2 pairs of the new 10.2s - it is only money!

I have yet to draw up the plans. If anyone wants to pursue these, contact me about helping beta a full set of plans.

The same treatment has already been done for the EL70, and can follow for all the MA drivers.

Dave,
Are plans available for this configuration with the CHR-70s?
Thanks,
Mike

What is the benfit to the dual a10's? In mtm speakers it is intended to help with bass extension. Is that the purpose of this design?

Higher efficiency, less doppler distortion, greater dynamics, more impact, play louder.

I may have missed it, but how are the speakers wired?

Typically one would wire them in series, but if you have a 2 ohm capable amp, parallel is fine. Or give each speaker its own amp.

Originally I had these drivers wired in series to give an easier load as mentioned above by DaveD.

However, after some experimentation they are now wired in parallel to give a nominal 3-ohm load. This gives all round improvements as if the speakers are on steroids.

I use SE 300b monoblocs (around 7W) and a pair of 35W SE GM70 amps with these speakers. Both these amps cope very easily with that load. However the increased headroom the GM70 amps gives wins the day for me regards there impact on the sound presentation. I have also tried a couple 20W(ish) SS amps (a Rotel and a NAD) and both coped easily the load.

The difference in sound from series wired to parallel wired drivers in these speakers is quite marked and by far better wired parallel, if your amp can cope.

These look really nice, the black 'plinth' at the base is a nice touch. I think it would still look great if you added another pair of drivers to each box
