If you want to stick with paper the 5.25 A10p. It goes lower, higher and edges the larger driver in midrange, and is almost as efficient. More versatile as to box size (the A12p seems to really want a big box) and cheaper to boot. The 6.5 A12p edges it out only in how much air the larger cone can move.

This TB seems to do just about everything I need. It's on sale and I have $10 off too.
If what's on the spec sheet is true... With that in mind, I will check out the A10p as well.

Fostex are sometimes up around 18%. TBs even greater (althou many less samples).
Matching Tang-Band drivers could be a problem, but I do have a WT3 woofer tester. I can see just how different they are. At $65 each, ordering 4 would be ok. Maybe I could get closer matched pair out of 4 drivers.

thanks,

Vince

When i get an order for FE206 or FE166 or other custom orders i usually buy 4 which does give better chances of getting a match.

Regarding the "Castle" microtower that Dave mention a few posts back, I've built at least 3 versions - the first as seen in his posted photo with CSS EL70 (now residing in my mom's living room), and two with top panel angled forward at 10dg. I also built a single pair of the "true" bipole, but much prefer the placement flexibility and spaciousness of the Castles.
With appropriate dimensions and vent tuning, this topology should work with a wide range of drivers, either full-range or simple 2-way combos. I've thought about an upscaled version with either A7.3, or A10P and A5.2 as tweeter.

Those got given away in the end, the castle configuration, particularly if not pulled way out into the room, is generally preferred.

Received 4 TB 6.5" FR drivers today. They are so heavy I thought they sent 8.
These should go together pretty quick.

Thanks for all the advise.

I'm back on finishing up this speaker. Boxes built except the front baffle.
Since it's a full-range driver with a whizzer cone, should the driver be flush mounted?
If there is zero difference, I will just surface mount.

The basket is 5.5mm thick, so it's not a trivial rise above the baffle.
The front baffle edges are rounded.

W5-2143 would be about right for a MLTL or BR or tapered TL. Note that measures Vas is much larger than factory spec so 1 cu ft would not be too big.

Thanks. I'm struggling to remember what "BR" stands for.

Using the W6-2144 which is 6.5".

I'm going a different route with the box type.
Could be a total failure, but I have to see.

You have any idea if the driver has to be flush mounted or can it rest on top of the baffle?

thanks.

V.
