Re: Monacor SP-310CX Coaxial Driver MLTL's

Hi Ali, Hope you are fully recovered from your tooth abscess? So how are you getting along with your Milburn MKII speakers? Do they perform well with your OTL amp? As you heard at my place they are a super match with my NickG designed 5W 300B SET amps. Coax drivers do have a certain something going ...

Re:Monacor SP-312CX MLTL speakers

Finished the second 12" coax driver speaker yesterday. Unfortunately still awaiting the XO inductors from HFC so don't know yet how they will compare to the 10" speakers. Just a couple photos of the speakers as completed - First two orientated for W10/Android users (hopefully): http://www.audio-talk...

Re: Monacor SP-310CX Coaxial Driver MLTL's

Lovely work as always, Colin. I've got a 10" coaxial project coming up - mine will be in stage monitors for PA use, but if the drivers (Faital Pro 10HX230) prove to be good, though, I'll see about doing a pair for home stereo use. An ML-TL is a nice way of getting a decent amount of LF extension fr...

Monacor SP-312CX Coaxial MLTL speakers

As the 10" coax speakers sound so incredibly good, trying out the 12" version in a similar MLTL cabinet simply had to be done. I know Ali has a hankering to know how these compare to the 10" speakers I recently built for him. So an email went out to Scott requesting he design a similar proportioned ...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Well turns out I was only on half the dose of antibiotic I should have been. No wonder it wasn’t helping. Had to have yet another dental visit yesterday and have my gum cut open to be drained as the infection had spread all the way along my upper left gum. Can barely open my mouth (some might think...

Re: OB Speaker Opportunity

Hi Colin Thank you for your offer to visit again. I was hoping to make the Yorkshire Hifi Club, my final jaunt out in 2018. It looks like I might have to squeeze one more in. I would also like to hear the latest design you have produced as well. How easy is it to get the 845's into your home. These...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

Scott - first things first, while you're here : do you know anyone in the UK who has built any of Ron Clarke's horns ? I really need to listen to one if at all possible. Mark, you may find a UK builder of the Dallas II in this old WD forum thread http://www.world-designs.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?...

Re: Monacor SP-310CX Coaxial Driver MLTL's

I only charge nominally for the use of my speakers. :P Ah! but you haven't had my speaker running-in service charges yet :lol: Seriously apart from the banter, I asked Scott to have a look at the 12" version of the Monacor Coax driver, the SP-312CX, to see how this models into a similar proportione...

Re: Monacor SP-310CX Coaxial Driver MLTL's

And then the 2 Walnut speakers for Ali now becomes 4! So I now have a pair for my own use and for demo purposes should anyone want to pop over for a listen. Photos orientated for both W10 operating users and Apple users. http://www.audio-talk.co.uk/colin/SP310CX MLTL21.JPG http://www.audio-talk.co.u...

Re: OB Speaker Opportunity

Thank you all for your thoughts on this enquiry. I will be taking the advice given. I did hope to have Colins OB's hooked up to the 845's, we have had a discussion about a audition at Owston. John, You are most welcome anytime to come over to mine for an audition. Bring the 845's so we can hook the...

Re: Monacor SP-310CX Coaxial Driver MLTL's

I have been busy these last couple of weeks after a phone call from Ali commissioning me to build him a pair these MLTL coax driver speakers. Of my available stock veneers I had American Cherry, American Walnut and American Oak. Ali chose the Walnut. To keep these as light as possible I decided to f...

tried to get in touch with scott but on his profile there is no email link any ideas anyone?
I spoke to Scott earlier today and he said he had recieved a request for a copy the XO. I'll send him an email with your contact details so he knows it is for you Tony.
