Frugel-Horn Mk3 Builds & Build Questions
It was -- in sims -- but trying to find one of Scott's sims from 6 years ago or so is not easy. A significant number of iterations were done for the FH2 (over a number of years), but then the new FE126 came out. From there (with a flash of creativity by Scott, and a builds by Chris) it only took 2 iterations (over a week) to get it to where it is now.

I just bought a Miniwatt APPJ mini2013 3W+3W. Just wondering if the FH3 would be something I can pair it with that little amp? I am thinking going Fostex or Tangbang or MA A7

I have driven my FH3's ( Fostex FE126En ) with the APPJ/MW and it's a nice combination.

Mass drop is selling the 4 tube APPJ/MW for $99.

Yup.. I got it there.. So now I am building my speakers. I see that the FE126En is a good choice for its 93dB. Are there other candidates for this little amp?

Default Frugel-Horn Mk3 Builds & Build Questions

A noob question, would the FH3 support a 6.5 driver? I wanted to build a pair of speakers that can also be used for my home theater for watching movie. I have been reading article that most FH3s are fitted with 4.5 drivers.

If that's not possible. Would a 12" sub pair nicely with the FH3 for the lower octaves?

I've been powering my original FH MK1 with Fostex drivers with the original MiniWatt for over 5 years. Tried a few different amps during that time but keep going back. It's a great combo. The Fostex drivers, even with eNable are just too harsh for my enjoyment with anything else. One of these days I'll get around to building the new plans.

No (hard to fit a 165mm driver into 140mm space). That is what Frugel-Horn XL is for.

Depends on the sub… to blend well with a FR it would need response up to 500-1k Hz.
