The FE126e is best in a horn enclosure. Check out the plans at Planet10.

They're lovely, if a little bass limited. I advise stuffing the tapered end and around the fold where the driver sits. Still, it's a personal preference.

+1 ... Do consider the Frugel-Horn Mk3!

My girlfriend instantly liked them after seeing pictures. (She likes the look of the Needles too.)

Here's the thread w/ pictures if you haven't come across it yet: Frugel-Horn Mk3

I hadn't come across it yet either. It looks like those have a baffle that can be changed out.

Perhaps the next build I do will not block the view from my windows. The sweep/arc would be a challenge to cut though. Also moving seems sort of problematic. I'm talking about moving in a truck. Are these going to have the deflector as well?

AFAIK the replaceable baffle is a "custom" addon - it's not in the official plans. Easy enough to implement, it seems.

And re. cutting the arc - there's a Trick Clamp a flexible board on, trace its curve. It's described in the plans, as well as either in that thread or the beta build thread: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/full-...ta-builds.html
