Thanks! And just to be clear, I meant the sound quality of the *videos* is not great. The sound quality of the speakers is superb, thanks to your skilled design.

Hello Dave
Do you think a PM6C can work in these Onkens? I have an old unused pair aluminium coil 8 ohms, the cheapest one. The published specs are in attached pdf. I can check in Dayton WT3 WooferTester if it helps.
Thanks

It will fit into the same size box, but would need a bit lower tuning. It does better in a bigger box with F10 going from high 30s to the low 30s. So another Lowther that works in a miniOnken reflex. 30-80 litres.

I'm thinking to put this miniOnken in a wide tv stand, both sides a 50" monitor. 30L looks a very nice size for this.

But if you think it's worthwhile I can use a bigger box. Max volume around 50L and 70cm high.

Maybe is a better idea to keep dimensions and check PM6C in a enclosure that can be used with several Lowther drivers. LOnken? Lownken?

Both options are ok for me.

Dave, I emailed you about a week ago for the miniOnken plans for Lowther PM6A, Voxativ AC1.6, Tannoy HPD 385. I’m especially interested in these speakers that Jeff made.

Should I send you another email to request the plans? thanks!
