the mini clone is probably a problem with either speaker. both need more power. 25 to 30wpc minimum.

I'm a little late here, but I also own a mini built by Tim and use it with my Totem Arro's.
They are 4ohm, 85 or 87db(can't remember) and sound great with the Aleph.
By coincidence, I also own a bpa200.2(dual mono)
The bpa provides more robust, tighter bass than the Aleph, but otherwise cannot compete against it.
The Aleph is hooked up most of the time.
