I'm a novice looking for a high-WAF design for a large bright room (see Help selecting suitable speaker design) and having chanced across this thread am wondering if the Mk3 is the answer. Any progress with the Australian maker of the flat-pack? If so then it'd be great if you could post or PM the contact details.

Cheers APS

I do know that he was working on getting Alpair7 FH3 proto together. He is watching this thread, expect him to contact you.

The FH3 sounds like it satisies your criteria... particularily with Alpair7, CHP70, or EL70. All available from http://www.darcheraudio.com.au/ in Tasmania.

The first Australian FH3 flat-packs will be available in the next week or so, planning to run a few in 18mm ply on Saturday with driver cutouts to suit Alpair 7 and CHP\CHR-70.

Thanks for the information. Yes, I've tracked down darcher audio. How does one make a choice between the Mark Audio drivers? What are the relative strengths?

Same basket as EL70.

I've heard CHR & EL70. EL70 should be substantially the same as the CHP (El70 was designed to dig a bit deeper in the bass)....

Over here http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/full-...t=darcheraudio EL70 was choosen.

Thanks. Also found http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/full-...-chr-70-a.html. Leaning towards Alpair 7 as it's not too much more.
