@planet10 I’m interested but I can’t decipher that alphabet soup you posted. Can you please clarify?

Yes, Google may be able to translate between almost any two current living languages, but Davish might require the skills of a Louise Banks.

Slam,

I really need to get to posting pictures of these to tell the story. There is some explanation here that outlines the miniOnken nomenclature: fonken-style box nomenclature... what is with those names?

Who knew when Chris named the 1st miniOnken for the FE127 a Fonken, that we would literally have a 100+ boxes to name in the same vein.

The Woden BabyLabs have there own thread: Woden Design 3" Box Designs, Baby Labs & more

Thanks that helps. Any opinion on which in the list is “the best”? I know that is highly subjective but would value your opinion.

Depends on both the specific application, and as there’s quite a range in the basic sonic signature of the range of candidate drivers, your personal taste. The latter can take longer to qualify than one might think.

Barring Chris’ (important) points, a set that didn’t make the list till now.

The Alpair 12pWeN/A7.3eN MTMs (with external passive XOs & grills). $4k. You have to come get them.

Click the image to open in full size.

But as i showed by recently swapping in uMar-Ken6 with A6.2MeN, any of the metal cone Alpair based boxes will sound the “same” but won’t go as low or play as loud.

Dave, how's your driver supply? I could use a replacement pair for my Mk3 Frugal horns, grandkids couldn't resist poking my FE 126's.

I have a fresh batch to put on the break-in bench… so a fresh pair would be 4 weeks or so off if i got to it right away.

Price and Paypal still the same? I would be using these with a 3 watt SET amp, would you recommend I stick with the 126's or change up?
