I guess they don't figure we are as crazy over hear (we may be a bit slower on the uptake, but i bet we can match them loon for loon)

Send your serious inquiries to adam at madisound. He gets enuff of them he may try to twist some arms -- they will besharing space with Fostex at CES.

Efficiency, parameters etc. this is what I found with a quick look-see:

Preliminary Fostex Datasheet?

There may be more comprehensive info buried somewhere, but this gives some details at least.

Cheers

1 very important number -- you could probably land a pair of these on this side of the pacific for ~$800/pr

Thanks rcdaniel for the link. That is what I was trying to post yesterday in a cut and pasted form pic, and I didn't even realize that my post had got posted. That is what I get for trying to be fancy.

How much is the sales tax on a pair of Feastrex?

Hmmm, looks like it has the FF/F-style metal dust-cap; it does not seem to fit neatly and there are folks that don't care for the (artificially metallic?) sound of said caps. It would have been nice to see a sweet phase plug in there. Also, a mounting method that would facilitate easy attachment to a front horn / rear of a baffle; I think the bevelled driver frame makes this more difficult (could be wrong!).

OTOH, perhaps I can assume Fostex knew what they were trying to achieve and how 'best' to go about it... I just need to know whether: 1/ those assumptions are correct and 2/ do Fostex objectives align with my needs/wants?

A big cheers and merry Christmas to all on this forum - feel warm in the knowledge that you have contributed to a dangerous study diversion over the past year

Raymond

Edits: added comment about mounting method.

I know the FF125 has some issues and i've seen complaints on the F200A, but the FF85 is quite stunning (althou the cap on this one might actually be phenolic/plastic). Clark had high praise for his FE208es-r which was the "development mule" for this driver.
