Default fostex fx120 and PAWO

Dear all,

I have questions about fostex drivers and suitable box.

Can the fostex fx120 be use on the PAWO cabinet that could be found in Planet10's site? Will it work properly in that cabinet?

Does the fx120 sound better than the fe127?

Thank you.

From all reports. One would also hope this is the case given the price differential. I have a pair breaking in to play with.

I haven't had a chance to really crunch the numbers or measure the drivers. Factory specs put it really close to the 127.

That the PAWO works with the FE127 is a fluke... it was not designed for the driver... you might look at some of the designs specifically targeting the FE127 -- the Mileva was designed to filt a similar form factor.

Thank you, Dave


Now I'm hoping to read about your sound comparison between the 2 drivers and hopefully including some enabled drivers of yours.

Thanks.

To my ears, the stock FX120 is a huge improvement over the stock FE127E.
