I have experience with BIB's - for me they were worth the build. Really simple to construct. My advice is not against any other design - I only recommend that you include BIB's on your shortlist.

I'll second the recommendation to look at Planet 10 designs. I have built Fonkens w/ FE127 and Metronomes w/ FE108eSigma. Both are very satisfying.

Also built Half Changs (using FE206e drivers, which aren't on your list) and love them too.

Kudos to Dave & Scott!

Cheers, Jim

I second the vote for planet10, a great repository of designs and knowledge.

My first project was an onken design too [My 'Moon-Onken']. I don't count myself as particularly gifted in the wood-working department and this type of speaker requires some care to build well. But I feel the reward was worth it. It helps if you have a sharp saw and good quality plywood.

Elation? Is that what they're calling it these days?

I was reading the label on the bottle of little blue pills and they said to call a doctor at that point. My wife said "forget it" and took the phone away.

Oops, that's OT, sorry.

lucky man, still early enough in the "marriage" that "me luv you long time" isn't a joke

back to your regularly scheduled progamming
