Default Fostex FE207E PhasePlugs

Hello all...

I have a pair of Dave's PhasePlugs laying in my shop.

But until now, i didn't managed to cut the dustcap out, and manage to actually install it, due to unknowing if i understood the instructions right.

At Dave's site, there is a clear explanation howto install it on Fostex Fe167, or whatever, but i don't know, if i just have to do the same thing with my drivers FE207E, or ???

Hope that someone could expain to me, what to do excatly...

Jesper.

Yes. It just happens to be a bit bigger.

The very hardest part of the phase plug installation is getting up the nerve to take a scalpel to those precious speakers.

Of course, the question is, how do they sound now the plugs are in?

Some listning impressions so far :

First impression, was a (even) wider stereo perspective, the perspective was quite impressive before, due (i think) to my balanced F4's, but the plugs gave me even more of this... If to explain, i think the sweet-spot also is bigger now, but i am not sure if this causes the wider perspective, or if it's the plugs themselves ?

I slightly can hear some de-sibbiliance (the good way), maybe it's just beliving ? - no ... I think it's for real, but time will tell for sure, when spending some more hours with them plugs...

So far so good, they are sure some improvements

Jesper.
