Hi,

My pair are the D5NF model with urushi phase plugs.

My cabinet dimensions are slightly different then the outdated ones on the website. I was sent the updated cabinet plans from Hal Teramoto after listening to them while in Japan. I have a basic pdf file of it. If anyone is interested, drop me a pm with your email and I can send it over.

Have done a few tweaks with great noticeable improvements. First one was swapping the polarities around. Soundstage and bass has just opened up to another level.

Second tweak was sticking sound dampening strips internally around the bass port. Cleaner bass was noticed (less boom).

Third tweak was using wooden pyramid cones underneath the speaker and adding a heavy weight (10kg) on top of the speaker. Cleaned the bass up a bit more again.

I'm really loving these speakers. They are definite keepers ! (unless a pair of nf5ex comes up!) What I love about them is they are so fast and resolve so much detail. Reminds me of electrostats in speed but with more lower and midrange weight and body. The coherency from the single point driver, no crossover and neutral sounding presentation(problem that most full rangers don't have) makes it such a big winner in eyes!

Happy days!

Hi Chan, I'll try take some photos for you on the weekend!

I have emailed you the updated cabinet plans as provided by Hal.

Please note that it doesn't show the rear access panel or the crossbrace that the original plans had. I'm not sure if Hal was in a rush and didn't add that part in (just wanted to show me the updated outside dimensions) or if it was done on purpose. Need to clarify with him.

Would it be possible to get the new drawings of the basic enclosure of feastrex from someone who already has them? I appreciate your help.

Has anyone heard feastrex speakers in a quite small enclosure?
I came across with these and though that why not to build something simiral if I'll have some time:
6moons industryfeatures: On Assignment 2 - Warwick Freemantle reports on Feastrex

If someone has already tried it, maybe you could recommend tomething for the bass driver?
