This looks like a genuine article and not Photoshoped... Btw, the egg shell blue on the driver is charming. Recent one Dave?

Hope the owner is enjoying the sweet sound!

Just finished a pair of MK3's with Alpair7's. Simply amazing sound. I usually veneer my speakers but took this pair to the autobody guy and had them painted piano gloss black. Beautiful sounding and looking as well. Still breaking the cones in and will hook up to a system of upgraded all Dynacl tube/valve stuff.

Hi Rob.

If I may ask why did you go for the alpair 7's rather than Fostex FE126En? I am a newb in speaker building and would like to make the right choices.

Thanks

I must have answered that question a zillion times

Here is an extract form an email i sent out that answers the question wrt the drivers i typically ship with flat-paks.

I am planning to built the MK3, Is*FE126eN2 the best*driver to use.

Depends on the amp, your room, your listening tastes. On an absolute scale the A7 is, IMO, best. But you need a really good amp of adequate power to drive them as they are brutal at revealing an amplifiers shortcomings . The FE126 is also brutal on amps, has a synergy with SE amps (tubes or SS), and is the most efficient of the lot, so is the favorite of those with small tubed SE amps.. The EL70 has almost the finese of the A7, but has greater synergy with lesser amps. It also has the best bass and is the driver that rocks best. The FF125wk is newish here and, without having extensively testing it yet, somewhere beteen FE126 & A7 for how it fits into the picture.

All of these drivers make a good set of FH3, but they all have there strengths.

I have the Fostex drivers in a pair of transmission line spkrs and I didn't like them much so I just experimented. The presence is amazing and I am totally happy. I use a self powered sub for the lowest of the lows but these really do a great job. Rated from 40hz to 40k hz! Very delicate speakers so take care mounting them.
