I'm very intrigued, how about four together, no partitions internally with a single large driver in the middle, say an fe206en? I know this is moving away from a Frugal horn but it's interesting.

You would end up putting a driver with lower Q & Fs into a box still tuned for a 4"driver (because it changes to a half-wave design instead of a 1/4 wave design (length dimensions need to be double for the same tuning) it is theoretically the same as the 4 individual FH3), so you would likely end up with less bass than FE126En.

To make the larger driver work you need to do increase path length -- something like Vulcan.

Funny enough, I've built a pair of Vulcans and love 'em, as we speak I'm finally after seven months finishing them piano black.

I have a question to dampning, would there be any effort into useing some bitumen on the rear of the baffle, behind the driver?

Still have a sheet left over from dampning the car doors its a nice heavy bitumen with an aluminium liner.

Not really. The panels are quite well braced, so it's not likely to bring much to the table.

Bitumen adds mass without adding stiffness, lowering the frequency at which the panel will resonate making it more likely to get excited, and lower the Q making the resonance more audiable if excited.
