Default FE166En different from FE166E?

I notice the specs for the new FE166En is quite different from the older FE166E.

Qts: 0.21
Vas: 45.11l
Xmax: 0.6mm

Qts: 0.25
Vas: 37.02l
Xmax: 1mm

Madisound recommends FF165K for BK-16.

Qts: 0.2
Vas: 48.2l
Xmax: 0.3mm

Looks like the new FE166En is not as compatible to the BK-16 than the older FE166E!

What do you guys think?

If I am going to build the BK-16 without the super tweeters, which full range driver do you suggest? The older FE166E or the new FE166En?

I tried it with the fe166e. Not as much bottom end as you would get from other designs like the fostex recommended cabinet for example.

Well not to froget the comparism with the 167E

Xmax: 0,6
Fs: 51,5

by the frequency responce of the supplied graphics it seems the 166En has a bether end, let say above 15KHz
it has a lover FS by 1,5Hz but a bether Xmax

both are ES cone

I for my self am currious how would the 166en perform compared to my 167E

As it's a replacement for the 166E, not the 167E, stating that they're different is about as far as you can take meaningful comparisons, esp. given that they are not really interchangeable in alignment terms (short of resorting to Eq).
