Not yet. We haven't built the miniOnken yet for the A10p. The Trap FS are the same tuningas the Mar-Ken.

It would be interesting to hear FF165wk in the FHXL.

I've been reading this post (and many others) with interest. I'm looking for an enclosure for a pair of A10.2's. They will be used as mains for music (wide range, Bach up to Indy Rock). If all goes well and I might also add a sub to combine for HT, but that's not a given. The room is 6mx6m (20x20feet) and I will be combining with a Marantz AV-receiver.
It's a first time build, so I'm looking for a tried and tested design. The Pensils and FH's footprint is a bit to big.. So far my eye wondered towards the M10-A10 or Mar-Kens. Different enclosures of course, floorstander vs stand mount. From what I read, the M10-A10 has more base and Mar-Ken more control.
Back on topic: any comparisons between the two yet? Does the larger box give the Trap FS more base?

The Trap FS has the same volume & tuning as the stand-mount Mar-Kens.

A pair in solid woods by Bernie (mahogany), outfitted with FF165wKen -- the pictures hide much of the varigation of the wood, they look even better in person.

Vent is out the bottom on these ones.

There is a thread (that i have lost track of) where i was to comment on the FF165wk once i had given them a listen....

They sound very nice. Stock drivers are good, treated drivers just that much better. They do not seem to have the peakiness that is a bother with stock FF125.
