The designers are strongly discouraging the use of MDF in any FH3 flat-paks. And none of the 3 in process are using it.

We typically use utility grade baltic birch. For higher end bilds we have been using bamboo plywood (the stranded variety being the best).We have yet to do a build that has required us to use the premium grade architectural plywoods.

Better downward dynamic range, better imaging/soundstage, less boxy speakers, and the ability of the speaker to become harder to locate (the ability to dissappear). Box design, shape, and other details play a interdependent role.

Is there a new FH really getting designed for the 166en?

I have started to make my MK3. As a boilermaker i see this a lot in drawings, Why don't the draftsmen put in a dimension instead of an angle. only 1 min extra work for the draftsmen that results in an easier and more correct build. Also the drawing would be easier to read if it had correct hidden detail on the baffle. I have to say that the info on marking the radius is good work!! Also Have to say a thanks to everyone who has contributed to the design on the speakers.
