frugal horn for A10.2/3

design candidates for A10 series drivers would include:

full size / floorstanders
Woden Silbury (I've heard sibling variants of this design with FE126E, A7 and FE166E) - more time consuming & larger build than FH3, but stellar performers

Pensil MLTL - very simple build with still modest footprint - note that revisions to driver's TSP require adjustments to enclosure design

Brines' M10-A10 (as above, and I'm not sure if Bob has revisited the math for most recent versions of driver, most particularly the A10P)

standmounts - well, there are the MarKens, and several more simple BR designs
 
thats really disappointing! :(
apparently frugal horn design has got more WAF!!

While WAF wasn't the primary design goal (who'd be hubristic enough to think their design could find universal aesthetic acceptance? :D), it did sorta turn out OK.

As the question has been asked numerous times, let me presume to speak for Scott - not all design topologies can be easily scaled to fit a different driver and / or space constraints and still work worth a damn.


Have you had an opportunity to hear FH3 with Alpair7.3 and supporting woofer(s)? Depending on your application, you might reconsider the need for larger drivers - or not. ;)

huh?

FWIW, the A10.2 work very well in an MLTL such as Brines' M10-A10 and Pensil - but I'm repeating myself.
 
As Chris says, the FH3 topology does not lend itself to larger drivers very well, since size quickly increases to the point where it becomes excessive for many people. Apart from the fact that the FH project was pitched at 4in - 4.5in units, that's the reason there aren't any for other driver sizes. Given the number of queries regarding something for the A10 (various models) I promise I'll get something done, but the topology / loading will be somewhat different, though still easy to build.
