Only the drivers the FE166, FE168e∑ and such need the corner load for sufficient bass.

Most drivers that are used don’t require corners.

Thank you both!
As I like smooth but detailed and well emphasized mids, which driver should I choose (in case that I decide to build it as my just second diy-speaker-project)? In my ears the MA 7's tend to be "too much" or fatiguing, but maybe it's just me.
Cheers

Plott,

I have heard the Alpair 10.3 and 10P in the FHXL. The Alpair 10P has softer top and vocals sound more pronounced, while the Alpair 10.3 has a more high frequency extension, and maybe a tad more LF output too.

You can look for impressions of folks who have used Alpair 11MS, Pluvia 11 and CHN-110.

Among other brands I have read that the Tang Band W6-2144 has good high frequency and mid-range sound, albeit sacrificing a little at the lower frequencies vs the MA offerings.
