Default BR plans with Alpair A6P and A6M

Hi,
I have a pair of Alpair 6P and a Pair of Alpair 6M on my table (both gen 2). I have to build two pairs of small BR speakers for my nephews (20-30cms height).
I was looking for alternativies to the small BR plans on Mark Audio site and obviously looking here.
I guess I should look at mfonken and ufonken cabinets, but I get lost.

I also remember there was the possibility to buy a collection of plans, but I cannot find the thread again.

can you address me?

Regards

northernsky

There are not all that many enclosures for these. A mMar-Ken for the A6p (same as the one posted for the original A6 but with no vent spacer. mMar-Ken6 with A6p is a near ideal volume and works really well.

The full plan-set includes this box, a CGR dmMar-Ken6.2m for the metal cone (+ the "same" box with a cross-section closer to square)and a uMar-Ken6 that fits either driver with no changes (+ similar with a regular circular vent), and a couple of examples of shoe-horning A6.2m into the smallest box possible. I have a mostly drawn trapezoid mMar-Ken6p with the vents up the side almost done.

Has some damping & cut plans.

email if you'd like to subscribe.

perhaps now redundant, but the "milli" design Dave referred to is

There will of course be limitations of the driver's excursion limits, but they work quite nicely and are a relatively simple build.

Thak you Chris.

I subscribed for the planet-10 plans and I am currently building
a pair of microMarken with A6P and a pair with A6M.
When I finish I'll be able to make a subjective comparison (also with my Fostex F103EN in factory BR).

That'll be an interesting triad

Hi Dave, its possibly a trapezoid mMar-Ken6p but with twin drivers? Im playing with the idea of put 2 in series (mainly because my amp was designed for 8 ohm drivers)... Thanks in advance...

PD: sorry for my bad english...

Nothing wrong with your English - better I suspect than Dave's Spanish - and often his hastily typing reads as if by a "C" grade ESL student

Yes, it is possible. It would be the same as any of the deciSize for A7/CHR/CHP/FF125wk retuned for twin A6p.

If you subscribe i'll do it for you. eMail me.

mini sized keyboards on lap tops, multi-tasking and a 45lb lap dog don't much assist
