Another quick question. Is it a really bad idea to power this little guys with a Yamaha A-S301 amp? Currently I am using Yamaha HTR-3066 and will try it first but I expect a great disappointment.

Can't imagine why it would be a bad idea. While it's been several decades since I've owned a Yammy, and both units cited have more power than the Alpairs need, I wouldn't create the expectation of disappointment. Whatever amp you do select, be aware that break-in is real with these drivers, and you'll need more than a couple of days to be sure about anything.

That Yamaha looks to be one aimed at quality as opposed to those aimed at max features for the dollar. It should be decent.

I will give it a try.
And Chris sure I am aware of this. These days I spent quite some time reading this thread.

Many thanks for your opinions.

Hello to all!


A7.3's are in the house! I'm planing a solid wood FH3 (can't get good plywood, but I have a nice mahogany
I do have a small/hobby/hand tool/woodworking shed, so I think I can do it properly (we'll see) Any advice is welcome...


One question, as I noticed in plans,

inside measurements are staying the same as one changes thickness of a stock...

(all makes sence...)
but, as front grows in thickness, driver is "coming" more out of a box...
How much is reasonable tolerance for this?
I'm asking this for some handtool/construction reasons...
Difference between 12 and 18mm ply is 6mm but is, let say, 15mm too much?!


I hope I explained this good... :/ My English is not so...

As long is there is lots of breathing space for the back of the driver you will be fine.

Well I’ve had my Frugel-Horn Mk3s for some years now with both Fostex and mark audio drivers in them and although I like the mark audio drivers better they don’t suit my line up of SETs very well . So I must opt for the Fostex fe126en enabled . These drivers do sound fantastic with the Bottlehead stereomour 45’s! Anyway I’m installing a permanent Supra baffle on the mk3’s and installing the fostex’s. I also built the xl’s which are the finest speakers i’ve heard to date in their range and price. I never even finished them or have moved them!!! Thanks for slowing down my search for a better speaker Dave and company !! It’s been a long and expensive trek after 44 years! As you will, I’ll always be searching for better , but not now . thanks again

May I ask how are fronts attached to boxes on these?
Rabbet, or some tongue and groove inside, or just glued to the rim?
What is good way to join baffle?

I'm still thinking trough a construction of my boxes, and I'm not sure if I want them with baffle in front, or flush with sides... But I'm having fun

Those were built by Bernie (Hobbers). I do not know the details.
