Re: Pye Sunrise Radio

It looks like it's turning into a good project simon.. I'm impressed with your plans, I have a single (top of the range ) 12" full range wharfedale somewhere that would work very with a watt or two..

I've even got a phillips 10" 800ohm driver if you realy wanted to go back in time
