  1. Hi All Yup this one requires a lot of work in respect of bass loading ! I’m currently building a new enclosure which will incorporate a custom designed aperiodic vent . im hoping to achieve a -3db point of around 40hz . so far Bills prototype Magnesium’s are the best speaker I have built and also the best speaker I have ever heard . I just had to try the new Graphene Magnesium . should only be another few weeks before this next phase is completed. stay tuned Lads. Regards Mike
  2. Hi All. Terry O’Neil brought these XOT devices into the factory today ! What can I say ! They work . better 3D soundstage and detail , going back makes the sound a little and 2D and flat . I’m going to try and measure what these things are doing when I get some time . Cheers Mike Lenehan
  3. Hi Lads. Ok there is another prototype! More conventional looking , similar to an ML2 but 15% more volume . The original prototype is still viable but requires a lot more design work !! So the ML2 type enclosure is proven to have very low energy storage and low waveform refractive distortion from the baffle . they should be running in about 1 week check out the pic. Cheers Mike Lenehan
  4. Hi Batty LK1’s are 86db/W/M sensitivity. Very easy 8ohm load . Cheers Mike
  5. Hi Guys just a quick update ! I've spent another 34hours on the Xover design since my last post and yes they are devils no doubt . Having everything burnt in is critical before making any changes as things change very slightly after run in . This is where much of the time in Xover design lies . One must apply a new idea then let the thing burn in before making any critical decision. I hope to have a listener within another week or two . Cheers Mike Lenehan
  6. HI CAMERON OK mate making a list on my phone now . Cheers Mike
  7. Hi All Ok I was advised from 2 sources, Clay and another mate I trust that this was the device to have as a streamer/server ! so I got one , Clay set it up for me ( because I am an IT imbicile ) and came back to me and said Ahh Mike this thing is awesome so he bought the one he had . I immediately ordered another one for myself and some stock which I should have on the 20th of this month . Cant wait to get the beast in my ref system . At the price they are 1/3 to a 1/4 of the price of other SOTA contenders so are definately a great option in an all out system .
  8. Hi Guys sorry for the lack of interaction on SNA ! OK the new speaker is going well , I'm only getting around 15 hours per week on the new Magnesiums at the moment because we are flat out with FoilFlex cable orders. This covid thing has bumped up our orders on FoilFlex and Curious USB cables quite significantly ! who would have thought hey ? ! Ok the Xover changes quite significantly in respect of any change at all in the shape of the front foam baffle and even the enclosure energy storage tuning ( by this I mean absolute minimising of energy storage . )
  9. The baffle will be Foam and it must be an exact density . It's part of the design . Solid baffles are a no no for sound . Mike
  10. Ok. I found this pic on my phone ! Someone please tell they look ok 🥴 the foam baffle by the way is just a prototype so is not yet finalised . cheers Mike Lenehan
  11. Hi All ok I have a pic at work so I will post it on monday ! they do look a bit wild so not everyone may like what they look like. This is a 7 inch twoway design utilising the latest Seas Graphene Magnesium bass driver and the Seas T35 Exotic high frequency unit ( both drivers are modified and upgraded ! the T35 significantly so ) They will be delivered with their own dedicated 3hz IsoForm stands. Although this is a two way standmount they will weigh 90kgs each and are designed with absolutely zero compromises . My experiences with Bill initial Magnesium 2
  12. Hi All I guess you guys have read the two reviews for the FoilFlex cables !! BUT I often wondered why Wojciech that did the HighFidelity.pl review wasn't completely blown asunder by what the FoilFlex cables did in his his system ?? I knew his Siltech Triple Crown speaker cables were quite high end but I didn't rrealise they were generally considered the best speaker cables in the world !!! and wait for it >>> cost US$68,000 per pair WHAT ? Thats Aud$107,000 . Check out what he says about the comparo here in the paragraph below .
  13. Hi all been a long time since I have posted ! mainly because of a new loudspeaker or should I say a new concept . Some of you may know I've been designing a new loudspeaker for Bill Hobba called the Magnesium limited . This speaker uses the 5.5inch Seas Magnesium bass driver and the Morel 1 inch neodynium tweeter. After what was a long long time with Xover design we ended up with a loudspeaker that exceeded the performance of the drivers I currently use in my ML1 ML2 and ML5 loudspeakers At 65 years old I was seriously considering retiring at the end of the year ! was i
  14. Hi Guys . This is a new topic specifically for listening impressions of the new LK1 kit speakers ! Anyone offering a mini review here will have had the speakers in their own system for 3 days . Kits will include all parts including fully built crossovers ,drivers,flat pack enclosures,precut internal foam,two pak and PVA glue and a detailed manual including a USB stick with loads of pics. We should be ready to ship kits in approx 10days . As promised our first 10 kits will go out for $1000. You can PM me or email mike@lenehanaudio.com.au or ring 0418
  15. Hi All. I'm a bit nervous this is the first new topic I've everposted ! Heeeerree go's I've decided to include some trickle down technology from the ML2Limited into the ML2Reference. OK what can be included that's not too exy ? See list below 1. Upgrade internal 4mm steel plating to 6mm plate 2. Upgrade 25mm hardwood dowel differential bracing to 30mm cast iron rod bracing 3. Upgrade 12awg inductors to 10awg inductors 4. Individual ribbon wiring cutting profiles for signal drive and ground returns Installing the 10awg inductors will mean the Xover can no longe
