Default Backloaded Horn for Fostex FE 83

Hi im a newbie here and first of all i love this forum. Im building backloaded horns and im still looking for a small blh enclosure for the Fostex FE 83. Does anyone have an idea? I heard that there is a Nagaoka enclosure for this driver, but couldnt find a plan for it. So if you can help me, please answer. Thx a lot and best regards Thorsten

look at the original Buschhorn MkI enclosure - I think it's about as small a "BLH" as you're likely to find that actually works.

http://www.speaker-online.de/bauen/bhorn.htm

If you can't read the original German text, the diagram and parts list should be sufficient to build from.

This design/folding topology is relatively easy to modify for a 4" driver (i.e. FE126/FE108EZ/FF125K - works best with the 126)

Note that optimum performance of this type of design is predicated on using room corners to complete the final section of horn mouth - they will still work without, but be severely limited in the lowest octaves.

Default Nagaoka F-81

The Nagaoka Tetsuo F-81 design uses the Fostex 83E. The plans are available in Book #5 of Tetsuo's designs. Book #5 is out of print now though, so it might be hard to find.

Thanks for your answers. The Buschhorn is well known here in Germany. Works very good with Tangband or Visaton. I ve found a small horn of 40 x 25 x 14 cm on ebay germany. This guy sells em for a lot of money. Ill upload a pic later, maybe someone knows this enclosure

Yes, the F-81 was the starting point for the Naga design, which is now pretty heavily evolved. It is definitely viable in stock "F-81" form though.

I personally love the small Fostex drivers. harder to please than you think though... they are very resolute, especially in the upper frequencies. gotta feed 'em right.

I am having some modded by Dave Dlugos now, actually to offer as an option in the Naga horn... should take things to the next level.

I assume you mean this.

Can't guarantee how good it is though.
