Sorry this one got overlooked. The older versions of the A10 should work fine; spec. is close enough in loading terms. I'm currently assessing a range of other drive units, although initially we've wanted to confirm we're happy with it with the baseline drivers.

If not clear, the first builder was very happy with the 10P in this design

If I could juggle the floor space, I'd most likely replace the Pensil7 in my HT rig - but then I'd need to build a center channel, and maybe change the equipment stand.

and the 42" screen is looking a little small these days

As the FH3 seemed to very well accommodate a wide range of 3-4" drivers - some requiring adjustment in damping levels, I'd not be surprised if the same applied to the XLs. Of course the driver's native characteristics will still predominate, and if you tend to prefer the sound of paper, or drivers without whizzers &/or phase plugs, the list could be short .....

I don't know what number builder I am, but put me in the very happy column as well.

Hey Dave, Chris,
What is the radius of the back horn?
#5 underway soon but likely to be overtaken by a dark horse...
Thanks,
John

John,

That is in the plans. I know you have A10PeN, but i can't see that we set you up for a beta build of the FHxl.email me.

Quick Q - I've got a pair of L cao's that will need enclosures (when I get round to it), would these be at all suitable? Specs are on one of the charts on this link:

Would it be too much to ask for a video? Just to build some appetite with the awesomeness

Video of what, exactly? I just don't get what they prove, other than what the finished assembly looks like in situ, and in 360 view, and perhaps how much excursion the builder/owner is willing to punish them with, which I then listen to on my iPad, or even desktop 'puter with maybe a 3" fullrange driver and 10watt Triparh amp? (Not that there's anything wrong with that, I own two such systems, as well as a couple of others )
