This Alpair 10 Gen.3 is the latest model in a development line designed to extend the performance of mid-sized Markaudio full-range emitters. This generation of Alpair 10 utilises a new ultra thin wall coil. Together with further modifications to the cone, this latest model delivers usable frequency range up to 25-kHz while retaining its “purist” single cone design.

This driver retains the multi-form cone technology with a new more efficient profile giving improved high range performance. Design modifications to the Gen.3ʻs coneʼs neck, together with the lighter coil deliver a better off axis response in the 15 degree region. Central stereo imaging and box angle placements benefit from the these improvements.

The Gen.3 version houses an “Arrestor” in the magnet sub-assembly, a device that helps to avoid damage from over-load situations. For those users who like to add low frequency gain, the Gen.3ʼs power-train (cone, coil and suspensions) design retains the “long throw” design feature. While this driver is not deigned for continuous heavy loads, the Gen.3 is capable of handling variable bass load outputs from from most typical and popular forms of music.

The Gen.3 retains the audible smoothness of its predecessors while adding usable bandwidth, improved SPL and additional scope for optimising room placement of the box system.

    Excuse me for my English first, i’am self learner. I bought pair of this drivers 4months ago, now i decide to wrote my personal opion. After ten years of having same system, 2 and half way french stand speakers powered by classic AB class amp. I realise it’s time to make a change. First i search for options on internet, make so many price calculations, simulations in cad programs and realize when you have budget under 1000eur to build up something you can call it “high-end” and stay rock solid for this “conviction” …..it’s nearly impossible. Because under this price you must do a compromises, on crossover, on driver’s, enclosure, interconect’s etc. So after some time i told myself i must buy some audio monitor’s from recent company and forgot about DIY. Simple there is no way to do corectly for this price. I got break for a month and bug in my head just drill my brain again. I had idea, going to audio forum’s and doing research again. Find this little company called MarkAudio. At first I was worried, got only one experience with fullrange driver’s and it was not a good experience, midrange was good, but the rest of the spectrum was horrible, sound like someone put HF and LF filter on the end’s. But i was attracted to completly get out crossover, becasue you know when you mean with crossover seriously and build it up with some not so cheap foil-oil caps…it get very expensive. And it’s other factors to like loss some energy, phase shifting etc. I order pair…now i say wonderful driver’s Alpair M10 and decide to build Erich’s Hartmann’s bookshelf box. Second i search for amplifier, i choose Hypex AS2.100d. I apologise for tube guy’s,who like this drivers for pure analog, but my system ist all the way digital….. After saturday “merge” of amp, speaker’s and enclosure, play first song….and sit in the couch until 5am on monday. So many naunces, information, so clear and realy deep bass come flat to 30Hz ! I was shocked ! High its good enough after first hearing, but after burn up past few weeks come more birghter. It’s really complicated to wrote about sound, but for me when some one ask me for really good speakers on budget now i know what i tell. MarkAudio roll’s over everything at this price point ! So many gosebumps every day listen to new song hear it like never before 🙂
