Maybe you should contact Mr. Jacob Kuruvilla for that region...

Is this your build, by any chance?


If not and if you are yet to finalise a cabinet builder, you may consider contacting the above advertiser.

Is this your build
It's not my build in the ad you posted. My build is in progress right now. Eventually I found out a guy in Trivandrum who builds speaker cabinets. Very accurate work and very welcoming on inputs during the build. Will share his number here if it would be of use to anyone looking to build cabinets in south India.

Suji +91 80868 72678

The build is coming out to be real nice.

Hey folks

I'm delighted to tell you guys that I just finished my alpair 11ms frugal horn xl and currently going through warming up the speaker.

I couldn't have completed this task without the help of this forum members and hats off to suji for making such picture-perfect cabinets. I will be always grateful to you guys.

Initial impressions are very positive.

The sound stage is wide and I can clearly see the point source benefits mentioned by Mark Fenlon.

Treble is running a bit low at the moment, it might turn a bit more bright after the warm-up I assume. Might be to do with my tube preamplifier treble roll-off as well

Bass is already pretty deep going. The character of the bass is very similar to what comes from a subwoofer. Subtle room-filling bass but at the same time very deep and sustaining.

Overall sound signature has a certain cohesion to it. All the frequency ranges come out very balanced and synergistic.

Will post further impressions as the speakers warm up.

I don't think the binding posts in my build accept spades. I'mIMG_20200916_114557.jpg using banana plugs

the binding posts were purchased from India from http://www.theaudiocrafts.com/
if I remember correctly this was the last pair they had when suji purchased it 1 month back. maybe they have replenished the stock afterward.

Awesome looking build and do try to get some spikes on them so that you get them above the floor to the ear level. It made a difference to my FHs after putting some spikes along with the discs.
