No enclosure is going to quesl the Fostex "schreeeech" these have.
That bad? Ouch! Sounds like how I feel about the FE126. I bought a pair many years ago, played them for a half hour at most and put them back in their boxes. I felt the same way, nothing would cure that sound. (I may well be in the minority however as they seem to have been very popular).

I got the Nessie suggestion via some Japanese brothers in Audio. Apparently the resonant pipe is the preferred enclosure for the 138 ES-R.

The FE126 problem is mostly curable. Th eissues with the FE138 are WAY worse, and no one has gotten a set into Bud's hands yet to see if they can be remedied.

A beautiful looking driver thou.
