Default Mdf

I think what your seeing is the different levels from the edge of the baffle and the side of the speaker..I'm out of town most of this week. When I get back on Thursday I'll take my baffle off and have a look. I thought is was all MDF though.

Use the QB3 Quasi-Butterworth option for your box.

When the CSS FR/WR125S drivers were released the initial box designs were based on the 7 litre Parts Express cabinet. A single FR125S in this box is excellent for near field listening. An easy build with a high success rate. Who could ask for more?
btw,
The PE cabinets are all MDF but a different MDF than we're accustomed to seeing in North America. The dust is practically "fluffy" and made my concrete floor quite slippery compared to the locally available MDF which has more "grit". Nonetheless, for a pre-made cabinet the price is right and, if handled carefully, will yield good results.

I was never happy with the sonic qualities of that original PE box... the new box with the curved sides is at least a couple magnitudes better.

The couple we have on the way are intended as prototypes for a driver with baffle product (no loss to toss the MDF baffle the new PE boxes come with) for FR125, FE127, and FE167 for someone that needs a box on a real tight budget,

Default fostex with a cheap insignia box

------the following is an interesting post from another BBS , anyone ever tried it ?:


just replaced the coaxial speaker driver with fostex full range speaker Fe166E (Frequency response from 51.5 Hz to 22 kHz )

very high sensibility at 94 dB , almost 6 db higher than the original driver , so only need 1/4 of the amp power to get the same volume output

it shounds even better than my $300 Klipsch bookshelf speaker . it gives out much better sound stage.

I wouldn't think you'd get anywhere near the FE166e's potential in these boxes. They don't do particularily well in BR and these would seem a bit small to even try (anyone know the volume?). FE167e would on 1st pass be a better fit, porting would likely need adjustment.
