Hi Guys,
I’ve a pair of Nos Flat 8 & also a pair of 10F-60. Wired them up in an OB just for a listen &
what I found was the 10F-60 sounded much better overall. Yes though it shows nothing much but when you slowing look into the details of the woofers, Corals are really very very well engineered.

New 10'' FR driver found
McGee was THE "wish book" in the 1960's and 70's. I remember pages with CTS, Cletron, lusting over Goodmans, Phillips (fullrange !!) , "systems" with selected drivers and baffle boards. I ordered an 18" CTS woofer from them around 1969 - IIRC, 54oz square magnet, and had a rubber disc cemented to its dustcap. The poor thing ran from an Allied - Knight 6BQ5 p-p mono amp. My stereo amp was the EICO ST70 (still a great design to this day). I had a McGee "double magnet" fullrange 6.5" in a big vent reflex. I don't know if a reconer could do anything with say an EV18B and a whiizzer cone. EV's SP15 went to 10KHz on axis. I have one with the odd "control" in an R-J cabinet and it sounded 100X better than my Nirvana Super 10 on upright bass transients.

Looks like a pretty blatant Coral clone. Looks like the cone of a Coral Flat 10 Mk 2 but with a phase plug like the Beta 10. (Albeit in wood?!) Depending on how well the cone has been cloned it may sound quite good...

The heavily smoothed response does seem to have some potential........

Slightly OT guys, when I testing out an OB , I tried a Coral Flat 8 as well as a Coral 10F-60.
Was surprise that the 10F-60 sounded so much better, no spiky peaks etc. Dare I say it sounded very close to my reference ML Odyssey speakers but not as transparent in the highs. Will build a box to house it someday. If there’s any opportunity to buy a pair pls do so, its really good.

Cheers

Graph seems heavily smoothed, but they can't be all bad.
Looking forward to some impressions on this, they look beautiful.
Seems they want a relatively big box.
I do not understand what they mean about the VC inductance?
L1: 0.18mh L2: 0.36mh

... Is it dual voice coil?

We have the crystal-10, not the fast-10.
The crystal-10 is not on their website (yet).
It could be that the fast 10 is dual VC, but the crystal-10 is not.
The curve looks smoothend indeed, but currently we have it in an OB and it sounds smooth as well. No harsh peeks in the high. It is playing FR, without woofers.
