Can you guys who have heard the frugalhorn xls comment on their ability to convey complex music like symphonic orchestra? Do they get muffled and struggle with that type of material?

I heard the Mark Audio A10 in this enclosure on the weekend. We listened to a variety of music ranging from Girl and guitar to full synthesized stuff. Some orchestra music some organ music etc. I thought the speakers performed great. I did not think there was any congestion or strain muffle or farting at all. I think they sounded open and at ease with everything that was played.
A most important point is that the amp feeding them must be up to the task to produced a dynamic range of music.

I hope this helps

Thanks SCD. I have a Linn 2250 amp and I think it should be up to task.
I think I am ready to take this project on. Is the design ready for prime time and how can I get the plans?

It's tuned to a nominal 50Hz anechoic, intended for useful output down to the high 30Hz regions under practical in-room conditions (which is generally achieved).

Thanks so much!.
When it comes to the alpair 10p driver, is there only one version? I ask because I have heard that the other metal alpair driver went through a few revisions

Metal A10 is now on it's third revision, hence the 10.3 designation. A10p is the paper cone version. Take a look: The Madisound Speaker Store

By which Jeff means that the 10P is, so far, Mark's only paper cone driver in this size
