Thank you.


How is the transient response made better in Manzanita, having High Qts GRS-15. (often there is an opinion on Alpha 15a ringing/one note bass effect, taking out details.)

The GRS 15 has a bigger motor, a bit more Xmax and a whole lot less breakup. Also about 10% more cone area and the cone is ribbed. Just sounds better in the Manzanita application for less than half the money here in the US.

Thanks John. My components are very different to your original design so I know I've got some work ahead of me.

Default DOUBLE 15" MANZANITA PLS..

The daul 15" , 8" fullrange, manzanita you announced a "few" post back has since perked my mind in a big way. The look of your prototype, and the promise of the sound it should reproduce would be on top. I can very well understand you not wanting to give this desighn away, very understandable, you've " got to pay the bills", have you or would you entertain the thought of selling this desighn as a "DIY" with a complete parts list and breakdown of mat. including crossover-well every thing needed to complete?

You're welcome! Who knew this thread would still be active 12 years later?
Just goes to show what a fast and fun project this is. With some guidance and John's excellent crossover work the Manzanita has evolved and adapted while remaining true to its roots.
