Digital radio (DAB) is the new thing that's replaced FM, and lets you fit more channels into the main band, but is it really an improvement? I've found I have problems getting reception in areas where I never had issues with FM, and the sound quality where I can isn't always as good, which surprised me.

Hi all from snow-bound Newfoundland!

First of all, I would like a copy of the 3 pi plans. Not sure i will be building them but i am interested in it as an option. Which leads me to my woofer question. I have a pair of 12" woofers from the Pioneer HPM-100 speakers. From all accounts a decent woofer modelled on the JBL L123. Has anyone on this forum used this woofer in a 3pi speaker? I have seen the version built by Kegger on the AudioKarma econowave thread and it looks promising. As nea as i can tell the woofer is well behaved and has an efficiency of around 92dB. I will be using them with 300b SET and turntable with a phono preamp.

Thanks,
John
