Purple Heart Veneer with a shellac finish. Turned out ok, finishing is not my forte.

nicely done - looks like they were made for each other

I was thinking something with more of a Royal conotation... purple & gold is a royal colour scheme. Same color as the cloth bag a bottle of Crown Royal wiskey comes in...

Hi all!
Does anybody have the measurements of the Fostex BK20 enclosures? I do have the plans, but they are made for building the kit, so they do not contain the length of each component, angles, etc.
Thank you!

AFAIK BK-20 from Madisound is based directly on the BK-201 from a decade & a half ago generically designed for 8" Fostex.

Thank you very much Dave!
Now, please let me know, does anybody have listening experience with this system - FE208EZ + BK-20/201? I mean I saw that some folks are saying that Fostex designs are not the most appropriate. However I find this project simple enough and this would fit my philosophy of life - things are simpler than we think.
Thank you very much again for your fast answer!
Marius

This is a 3rd party design, i 1st found it on euro-sites in the late 90s, so i always assummed it was designed there.

Marius - count me among the folks who've commented on variable results with "Fostex factory" designs - I've heard / built several over the years and some of the larger Nagaoka manifold / BLH for FE206, etc are quite fine indeed, if not simple and lightweight. I recall helping a buddy with a pair for FE206ESRs which required something like 6 sheets of 5x5 plywood, and lots of patience on his part with the assembly
