Default Floor standing cabinet for FE207e+FT17H ?

Hi,

I want a floor standing cabinet to house FE207e + FT17H. Have any one ever construct this combination?

Also, since the VAS of FE206e and fe207e is similar. Can I use the [FE207e+FT17H] in the FE206's BR floor stand cabinet?

Thanks!

I'd use Martin's MLTL if you want a floorstander. Much, much better than the Fostex BR. Smoother response, greater LF extension, cleaner mids.

Tall floorstander -- Bruce, G Chang, or Curvy Chang.

I'm not actually. But I've built four pairs in the past (at least) and I know a little about design. As you're planning on a tweeter, I'd probably stick with the 207. its a bit smoother too, although it doesn't have quite the detail of its stablemate.

To be frank, I am not quite sure which one should be better:

1) single FE206E
2) FE207e + FT17H

Hi...

My FE207E does his job soloin a 35l-BR and I love it ;-)
I used to have it in the MJK-MLTL but I didn't like it.

Do you mean the Fostex's bass reflex, or "double" bass reflex one? Are you using tube amp?

larkinrulez, how did the sound differ between the mltl and the br?

nina, how tall do you want your cabinet to be?

Thanks,
Godzilla

Roughly ~ 80-90 mm at the speaker level directly to ear. I look for something that not so tall & can stand *very firmly* so it doesn't fall over my 1 year old kid //wink ... Any advice?

Any one ever try FE206E in Fostex's standard bass reflex?
