Fostex FE167E enclosure
 
Hi!

I'm going to build a pair of cabinets for my new Fostex FE167E.

I dont want to build the boring 15 liters bass reflex design, I want something better.

I found two options that seems nice but I cant find more info than the PDFs.

First option: Half Chili Chang
http://homepage.mac.com/tlinespeaker...v91-130108.pdf

Second option: Singular
woebking.net - Singular - Bauplšne

I'm not sure if the Singular was designed for FE167E. It is a big cabinet, I dont know if it's worthy the size.

What option do you think it is the best? do you have any other cabinet design? have anyone build one of this?

thankss
Jorge.-

Jorge,

There are a couple Chili Chang threads.

I thot singular was for FE206.

Don't forget the Fonken167. Well proven, and now that the driver is discontinued i'll let plans out on request.

Yes, the Fonken 167's are my (latest!) cup of tea.
They have much tighter, more controlled bass than a previous pair of MLTL's using the same driver.
Another league altogether.
They're a fun build too-- (more when I can figure out how to post pics!!)
-all the above based on using eNAbled drivers/phase plugs. YMMV
Best, Don

OK, good to know that the singular is for FE206, I wasn't sure.

>>> Fonken 167's are my (latest!) cup of tea.

Those really do look nice! I am so used to seeing BIBs that i've forgotten what more 'normal' sized speakers look like.

Yeah, get your 167's while you can! What's replacing it may not be as good. If i remember correctly the new driver may be harder to get as deep bass.

Dave (P-10) was kind enough to share the plans w/me.
They could also be configured as standmounters, as the actual required cabinet height is only approx 22".
The bass produced by these cabs is very well integrated, tight and controlled. By comparison, as mentioned, a previous of MLTL's, using the same driver, suffered from loose, ill defined bass.
There may be better cabs for this driver, but these are certainly worth considering.
Best, Don

I want to do floorstanders, as they will be in my living room for listening music & front speakers of my home theather.

I will use them with my Marantz SR4002. Now I'm using a pair of Yamaha NS-150 speakers, I hope a big sound improvement.

thankss
