After a lot of deliberation, the club have decided to go with a design shown in the Troelsgraven website shown as the Faital 3WC0-10 kit

See:  http://www.troelsgravesen.dk/Faital-3WC-10.htm

The build shown here is extremely detailed and fills 36 pages, leaving nothing to chance

We decided to go for the Faital 6RS140 and Faital 10RS340.  These come from LEAN audio in the UK and will land about R9 000,00

The tweeters are to be ScanSpeak D2600 units, landed at about R4 000,00

The crossover will come from Jantzen audio.  Still awaiting a price, but here it is:

An ulterior purpose of posting this news is if anyone has these components lying about.  We will make you an offer...

Exciting stuff Chris . Should be superb , judging by Troels impression .

"Setting up the finished speakers in our living room made me finally realise the magnificent combination of bass and mid-driver. Dynamic and with a degree of 3-dimensionality rivaling whatever speaker I have ever made, regardless of brand and costs."

Yes, we are wetting our pants yet have not even ordered the parts yet

Still recovering from reading the quotations for some of the items.  An email from Mr Jantzen said the shipping fee from Poland would exceed the cost of the drivers!

I think Jozua may have done.  There was some malarkey that sounded to me like a mis-communication, so I will quietly send him a PM and see what transpires
