Got them finished sooner than expected. Here is one pic, this is the best I can do right now till I get them home.

Now the break in will begin for about a week then I will revaluate. This gives me time to read that long a** thread on the enabl process. Wish there was a white paper on this that would break down the process.

How about "MuthaFonken" (c'mon, on some level you had to know someone was going to say it)

Short version is in 3 posts by Bud starting on this page

http://www.hawthorneaudio.com/forums...sd=a&start=105

Also have a look at the FE127 specifics in this thread (use the search this thread at the bottom)

I have my own twist to the treatment and am more than willing to share.

well, there is, sort of - but it's difficult to consume the entire above mentioned thread without indigestion or at least distraction.

There is also a thread on the Hawthorne Audio Forum that is far less didactic and pedantic, and which includes a fairly succinct description of the physical process.

http://www.hawthorneaudio.com/forums...php?f=2&t=1429



If all you really want to know is the patterns and materials to use for treating your drivers, then Dave at Planet10 is the guy. To date he's treated something like 30 prs of FE126/FE127, FF125K as well as several pairs of 3"/6"/8" Fostex, numerous CSSFR125's, CSS SDX7, Visaton B200, Pioneer B20's - I think it's fair to say that only Bud has more experience with the process on a wide range of drivers.


If you need hard scientific validation of how/why it works, good luck, but if anecdotal testimonials of EnABL's efficacy will suffice, those are abundant, myself included.

Thanks for the link guys. No scientific validation needed, I have read enough testimonials just searching the threads here.

Thanks, I probably shouldn't have rounded over the top, I think it looked better but it was to late once I put the router to it .

contact Dave - as good as the EnABL treatment is itself, there are additional very worthy mods for the FE126/7 .

Default This is driving me nuts.

I think it was over on the decware forum that somebody said

"Stop pressing my woo-woo button"

Yeah, I'm really liking those. Nice little little decor-friendly speakers that don't need a stand and sound good to boot! They do look like baby Moths. Does that make them Catipillers?

I'm done with the bad jokes. Honestly

Can you take a picture with someone standing beside them to give a better idea of the scale of these?
