LC, just wondering if there's any news to report on the smaller alnicos.

my nest egg saved for 'em is shrinking rapidly!

I'm also interested in whether Louis has come up with a suitable enclosure for the 6.5" alnicos.

Sounds like he has two suitable enclosures.

I'm also waiting with breath like fish bait.....

Hi all,

Thanks and so sorry about the lack of posts. This is the driver I have been paying a lot of attention with lately. I have the prototype and have been working on cabs for a while. I have narrowed it down to 2 speakers and will offer both.

One is a standmount and the other an XRS style floorstander.

The drivers are amazing and they are well worth the effort to get them done. My prototypes are in black so I can't make pics yet. I have all the baskets at the powder coater to get them done. It looks like a month away for them to get in. I have a good size order made up.

As for the price. The tooling for the 8's have helped me out a lot in regards to the costs so the finished speakers will be a great value especially for an alnico based full range speaker.

The standmount is 20"H x 10"W x 14D. Stand choices are easy and this is a more traditional or modern looking cabinet.

The Floorstander is 35Hx13Wx9.5D.

Both are vented designs and they are 93dB spl.

Looks like $1450 and $2350 a pair. I will have an AC pre order discount on them.

I may take pictures as well with the black basket.

Thanks,
Louis

Hi Roy,

I would make them on a custom basis.

Thanks,
Louis
