Default Fostex announced new limited edition 10cm driver: Fe103En-S

Hi to all,
Fostex just announced a release of new limited edition 10cm full range driver – FE103En-S.

Therefore I would like to ask competent forum members a qustion: is it possible to use these new drivers in Fe108eSigma reccomended enclosures without modifications (I already have them with the Fe108eSigmas but a bit more sensitive speakers would be beneficial for my amps).
The Fs of new driver is 72Hz, Qts = 0.2.
You can look for further info here

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Let me say right off that I'm not a "competent forum member"!
I wonder if this driver will make it out of Japan/Taiwan.
let's hope so!

Shouldn't be that hard to find someone who will ship outside of Japan if they decide not to release them in N.A.

Is it just me or is that one of the more difficult to read .pdf's?

I get $173 and $182 AUD. Not terribly expensive as I personally think many drivers are quite cheap anyway -- excluding the more esoteric ones. Anyway, blame MJK's OB projects for this release

They missed an opportunity to have the UDR surround...

We'll see, a whole new rev of Fostex drivers coming.

Info on all the new FExx6En drivers... i'm not happy they poached my suffixes -- have been leasking out for about 6 months. At this point it also looks like FExx7 may just disappear, given the dearth of info... maybe time so start stocking up for your Fonken.

Dave, I immediately wondered about the "En" suffix as well.

The Fe127e is now listed as no longer available on Madisound. It's not even listed on the 4 inch fullrange driver page any more.

The FE127e has been a standby for years now.

Maybe we will see something of a performance shootout between Fostex and Alpair in this forum when things get going.
