Fostex recomended back horn for FE108 E Sigma
 
Anyone who has heard it have any opinions on it?
I searched here but did not find any info which I thought to be strange, I may have missed it.

Thanks

I like to hear about it as well

Well, it all comes down to what you want. The 108 in a BLH will never be a bass monster. Again i am still not a big fan of most (<keyword)of the Fostex designs.

Well thanks for the replies guys,

It seems as if no one has heard these speakers except for "Taperwood" whose name I found in a "google" search which led me back to this site.
Oh well....

Andrew,

Actually, I have never heard any of the Fostex designs. I have posted to a couple of threads regarding them, however. From everything I have read to date, there are better-sounding designs for this driver. I could be wrong, but my impression is that the Fostex designs pre-date Martin King's work. I think much has been accomplished since then.

There are a few Fostex cabs that seem to get better reviews than the majority. From the buzz people are quite pleased with the 208 horn, and to a lessor extent the 108 horn (at least from the pics -- Gemme's $3k+ Concerti is a layertoned Fostex 108 horn). I've heard neither,

I have heard the 126 & 103 "horns". Neither was all that good (we did find a driver that works in them this WE).

We also got a chance to Aiko with FE108eS... i'd have to say it is the best i've heard that driver (still doesn't go as low as the BIB)

In the Fostex cab has been my least favorite alignment with my 108EZ's. In Frugelhorns, Metronomes, or OB (with bass support below 300hz) are all much better to my ears. There's something about the front terminus that detracts from the "point source sound" with the Fostex cab.

Itís very easy to make.
 
I have the recommended FE108EZ and I like it.
It go down 50hz and you can hear 40 hz (attenuated).
I changed the mouth steps for an smooth surface. I think this is a good improvement.
I have before an modification CheapTrick 164 (original from Klang&Ton magazine).
Best regards Jaime

Dave,

Weren't there a couple of "Spawn" type speakers that had the 108e Sigma's at your place last weekend? I thought (and so did Kevin Haskins) that they rendered female vocals better than any of the other speakers (except mine, of course).
:devilr:

I could be mistaken, but what I heard was just splendid.

Best Regards,
TerryO

Those will have been the Aikos, reworked slightly to take the 108s. http://homepage.mac.com/tlinespeaker...map-010407.pdf Glad you liked them. :)
