The MTMs are a 2-way design. The drivers give a wide range of XO possibilities.

Ok so you have a pretty wide range of crossover frequencies you can use. With two of the 12PW's I would think you could get fairly good bass impact from the pair?? I had a Alpair12 in SuperPensil12 cabinets (single driver in each) and the bass response went pretty low, although didn't have much impact. I've since sold the speakers and am now starting to think about doing something a bit different this time around hence my interest in this arrangement

A12pw has decidedly better bass than A12p. A pair of them makes for a solid foundation.

You did a MTM version. How would it work with just a TM two-way?

Should be good. I have drawings for that. Both straight and a folded one suited to putting a tweeter or midTweet on top.

Have you ever tried the A5.2 with the A12pw? Would it make a good 2-way speaker? I would guess the highs would be better than the A7/A12pw pairing.

We are just starting to explore the A5.2. Indeed in theory it should have better top than the A7x

The plans are part of our ongoing miniOnken paid plansets (contact me).

Chris has heard these, as have i, but they have been mostly living at Bernie’s were he has used them as is and tried them with a number of midTweeters.

We built a standmount version out of solid walnur which was a hit with the customer who uses them as full ranges.
