No, the MS units have no part commonality with any other MA drivers and are unrelated to any Pluvia model.

No. They are an evolution from the groundwork established by the A5.2, they do use a variation of the new baskets first seen in the Pluvias.

According to the Japanese distributor, "Mark Audio's drivers are privately improved in each production lot, even for the same model".
I think this is very good.

Hello,

Is it safe to use rock wool or polifill for 11MS drivers. I am concerned as there is a chance for fibers getting in the voicecoil gap.

Polyfill is a goto.

Hi Waxx,

What makes you not like the 11MS (and especially the 7MS), when compared to the "spidered" versions?

I myself have an Alpair 10P and 7.3, but I'm curious about the performance of those mono suspension designs (considering they are newer and theoretically "improved" designs)

I like the 11MS, but it's not as good as the 10.3, mainly on the low frequencies. It does not go that low and i have the impression that the harmonic distortion on the low is more prominent because the bass is less detailed. It also has a more ragged response.

The 7MS has similar issues, but on top it's also not that great, it sounds dull where the 11MS has a very good top end. it's like it's top end is very ragged and rolls of earlier than i wish wich is strange for a smaller driver. The Alpair 7.3 or the Pluvia 7 do it a lot better i think.

I measure it in the same BOX and the same room, but I don't feel that the bass of 11MS is inferior.
