The Jordan has a phase plug, none of the MA do. Dust can get into a driver with a phase plug, but in a normal mounting is not an issue, i’d avoid mounting one castle style.

To get into the gap stuff would need to travel via the inside past where the spider isn't (in the mono-suspension) or thru the ventalation holes above the spider on the voice coil bobbin.

Right; it's a bonded dustcap, no central plug so the whole frontal surface is sealed.

It was just the lack of spider that concerned me a bit, but no worse than a vented pole piece I suppose for dust ingress.

I've yet to see signs of particle entry into the gap. Mind you, I've never mounted them other than vertical and perhaps that's a consideration for not firing them upward?

EDIT:
Oops: I answered the question considering a phase plug. Maybe the same conclusion though?

Does anyone have experiences or suggestions of DIY a pair of Markaudio Dolby Atmos speakers, sitting on top of the main speakers aiming at the ceiling? I am thinking a simple sealed box. Not sure which woofers to use.

The CHN 110 data + a number of Dr Scott’s designs, 3 reflex boxes, an intro to the Woden Festival Series of ML-V and the Pensil.

Note: there is an earlier version that you may see with copies of Scott’s working sketches.

Chris is using P7 in Plu-Kens, you idea seems feasible.

Hi all, what speaker cable do you guys recommend using with MarkAudio?

I have just switched out my MacMini for a dedicated music server, Innuos Zenmini & the improvement in sound quality has prompted me to investigate other areas of my system to see if I can make further improvements, I’m currently using VanDamme 1.5mm speaker cable.

Depends who you ask and what you're trying to do. From my POV, assuming you don't want the wire to provide any EQ, then shotgun format wire, close-spacing, of sufficient gauge for the loop-length to ensure voltage drop is no more than about 0.1.
