A rare, even if it comes to fruition, $300 (my guess) driver vrs a readily available $40 driver? Should be more interesting.

Guys, is this the right place to be discussing a competitor's product?

Red face Competitor's Product?

Well I started this thread to find out about the correct way to build a box for the Feastrex D5nf drivers. In the meantime, while I wait for a time when I can aquire the Feastrex...I'm still interested in building the Markaudio 10.2 MAOP.
It doesn't mean that I don't still want to do a project with the Feastrex.

I build lots of speaker projects. I have yet to do a full range. I'm also interested in building some tube amp monoblocks in the near future.
(I have a Dynaco ST-70) The tube monoblocks would probably be low power and may have one 300b per amp.

When I get started on that project, I'll talk about it in the proper part of the forum.

Gary,

This is a vendors thread, for a more general discussion we could move the thread to FR.

Whatever you need to do. But my main interest and my long term goal-- next year to year and a half is to build the Feastrex speaker project.I find the Markaudio interesting. But if I did that it would just slow me down for gathering funds and "clearing the boards" to concentrate on that project.

The picture originally appeared here:
Exciting new line of fullrange drivers from Feastrex
I closed that domain and the link broke.

Here is the picture again, for anybody who might be curious. Remember to make a donation to frugal-horn.com if you build this design.

I built them from solid pine, the cheap shelving stuff from the BORG, white pine from northern Europe. Those speakers sounded awesome! Best I ever heard the D5nf, and I've heard a lot of them. Even Mr. Teramoto heard them at mluckow's house during RMAF 2008 and really liked them. They like no bracing and no stuffing when made of soft white pine.

Default Still in the future

Just kidding. I still plan to eventually build some speakers using the Feastrex D5nf full range drivers. It's almost a shame to hide them in a cabinet though. They are beautifully made.
