They belong to a friend of mine. He said I can try if I like them I can buy.

this pair has a rising response around 8khz, I would not use it as a full ranger. I tried to use them as a 2-way x-over around 3.5khz, sounds very good. Hempcone material has an attractive sound. Efficiency around 96db.

why should I notch it if the spec tells you there is no rise. If you want tp purchase them you can notch it. you really need a measuring device to measure the precise freq in which the rise occurs. your units may be different from mine.

cheers.

Which seller allow you the pair for trial?


Hi cjctan,

Since you're not quite happy with Fr8C, can you sell it to me with a good discount. Just want to try out how it sound.

Regards.

Hi Ipanema,

I have no intention of selling it at a "good discount" but will consider swapping with a pair of fostex or other fullranger

I dont have experience with many FR, but I do find my FR8C shouty. Way too much. To the point that I either use a notch filter (or two) or replace them.

To their advantage, I can say that the HF (probably over 10k, havent measured yet) do not beam and are quite pleasant.

I'm not sure what to do ATM. My drivers have about 130hrs, so the burn-in is done.
