Shame, I've been really looking forward to seeing those photos..

The Alpair 5 is by far my favourite driver, I just had to move them out of the room I work in because I couldn't stop listening to them...

I might have some timber, what are you thinking? Email me.

I've decided that the Alpair 5 Gen 2 aren't for me. Not enough sound emitting area and my interest for headphone-type mounting is not going to continue. It is nice not having to wear anything on the head. I prefer the bigger 10 and 12 drivers. Might even try a 7P again with my 12PW. The sound of those was at least on par with my K1000. Think my overall preference will be for the paper drivers. Stefan, do you have any cheap scraps of slim timber that I can buy? Could you cut some holes in them for 10 and 12 drivers?

I will try them with the Proprius soon.

Just looked at the specs, they pretty much double thier output into 4 ohms to about 45 W, can't imagine you using more than about a Watt or two at most. The distortion figures are given for 4 ohms as well and they are as low as almost any I've seen, so crack on.

I'd not have thought so, 4 Ohm speakers are pretty common and loads of speakers drop well below a couple of Ohms. I'm sure a competent designer like Graham would cater for lowish impedance drivers. Maybe they can't double output as impedance halves , Graham would have to confirm. On the other hand I cant imagine you would be using more than fractions or thier potential output anyway.

I'll certainly give them a go. More bang for buck than the K1000 already. Just need to tweak. Such an impedance is maybe even a bit low for the Proprius. I will have to check that with Graham too.

Bass should be fine when you drive them with a proper amp like the Proprius I'd have thought. When your ears are closer to the driver than the width of the cone you don't really have to worry about baffle step and front rear cancellation because of 'proximity effect'
