You might also consider FE167... easy cabinets, no real need for a tweeter. Better midrange but not quite as efficient, or with as much low bass impact.

Hi Guys,

There seems to be 2 versions of FE207 & FE207E.
Do they sound the same or which is the better
speaker ?

Thanks

Current version is FE207e, part of a major line upgrade 4-5 years ago... there are older 207s (some without the 207 moniker) that probably go back 40 years.

Depends on room, placement in your room, amps & cables.

A good place to start is with Martin King's article on the subject.

Hi Planet,
As per your advice that the 167E would sound better,
would it be feasible to build a 2X 167e in the G Chang
cabinets ?

Thank you
