Default Full range driver recomendation for dual mono LM3875 gainclone?

As the title says, any recomendations for a full range driver? I don't listen loud, and a small design is good. I like mid range detail and don't care much for huge bass boom.

The cheaper the better, as I am on a tight budget.

Ta in advance,

Chris.

Not knowing a blind thing about gainclones, power output? Output impedance? How much can you afford?

The Mark Audio CHR-70 would appear a good candidate. Have a look at the thread a few posts down on this forum.

Power output is rated at 56W continuous into 8ohm. I'm looking at the cheap end of the market (40 Max for the pair). I know that narrows the field slightly, but my budget for the complete build is very tight. The Mark Audio units look interesting, but are over budget at this time.

A pair of FE103's will scrape in on budget (plus a bit for shipping).

There are a multitude of FR cabs around fo them, and they sound just peachy.

Improvements like phase plugs, and enabl'ing will take them further, and in a back horn (not complex to build) have satisfying bass...

Well worth a go, or find a pair of 40-1197s from radio shack - less expensive cousin to the 103....

of course what fr thread wouldnt pass without a mention of tangband...


Take a look for 'Foster' speakers - the parent to Fostex, but they also 'badge engineer' a wide range of drivers....

PLenty to go at, especially at madisound/partsexpress....

Have fun



Owen
