I have the Hemptone 5" speakers. In their stock form they were disappointing to me. Although they sounded "pleasant", compared to the 4" TB Titaniums they sounded somewhat fuzzy, particularly noticeable on female voices. However, Enabling them made a great improvement. I put two coats of micro gloss(50% diluted) on on cones. Fuzziness is now gone. While the TB's still have a slight edge in clarity the Hemptones have sweeter, more musical presentation which to my ears gives them an overall edge over the TB's.

Hmmm.... I think this must be the reason why it sound a bit strange/ dull.

Hi Dave,
I just PM'e you with regard to the h-onkens for a JX92S driver - I wanted to try some living room friendly enclosures & a friend has offered to build cabinets for my JX92S driverd while he is building his Fonkens. Instead of a GM MLTL design, I thought the onken could be an alternative.

Can you point me to a h-Onken design so I could get an idea of the dimensions?

Nice build, looks like exactly the same material on the inside as mine :-)

cept I've just sanded and polyurethane the raw plywood, it's comming up ok, but 1 coat a week is slow going.. up to 5 coats now, might stop, but was aiming for 8. 5 will do with some beeswax.

you do the enabl'ing your self?

been thinking about doing that, but pretty hard to source the right stuff here in aussieland. So I just want to get em back together and do some more 'testing' :-)
