    Well done Dan I've been through the bargain hunting cold turkey too, feel better for it but I now throw a few hundred into occasional purchases while I would have thought that frivolous a few years ago. The system is sounding better for it mind you

    Just trying out my Chinese 5" full range drivers. I bunged them in some spare small Philips reflex boxes for a listen. The sound is way better than anticipated, very transparent and detailed with none of the upper end sizzle I usually hear with twin cone drivers. I reckon a compact 1/4 wave TL box could be the way to go with these.

    Are those going to become your main speakers once the Tannoys go?

    Probably not, I have rather a lot of speaker options.

    Nice alloy basket too, ventilated behind rear spider, plus rubber surrounds. All good.

    Delivered cost for a pair from China worked out at just over 100.

    There's a listing here: https://es.aliexpress.com/item/Aucha...OrigTitle=true

    There's a quarter wave horn type enclosure design here if anybody can make sense of it. Not what I'll be using.

    Looks a bit like the Hi Fi News Paraline design from the 60's, was a great sounding speaker using an 8" Elac unit (8N148 or 8N185). My pair made a terrific sound from a 1 Watt amplifier that I constructed.
