Right. The L Cao drivers are like that too, and have a
good response without a whizzer. Modest price for the
ceramic versions.

Nelson, you have worked with the L Cao? What is your final observations? What did they use as surround material? Thanks for mentioning them!

Treated paper surround. I thought they were quite good,
particularly in getting the performance without a whizzer.

Not the last word in definition, but very pleasant with a
little bit of EQ at 3 KHz.

One of the best I've heard was a Jordan JX92s, DIY project is here: Jordan JX92S DIY Tower Loudspeakers

I have a pair of Fostex FE126e in Ron C's BLH design, A126 (or some such). After a couple of years of very sparse listening they have reached equilibrium and have a killer midrange, very clean and delicate. I think they could benefit from a circuit to tame some peaks or possibly, an eNable treatment.

Taming the FE126e is well documented.

EnABL How-To for Fostex FE127e and other speakers

FE206ES-R in Sachiko cabinets. Hooked up to a pair of 60 watt Atma-Sphere OTL's in a large room, they had it all.

Just wondering (as I happen to have a pair of 206ES-R around):

- would Sachiko's sound better than a pair of BIB's with these drivers..???

Anyone?

BIB's properly set up will have much more bass but I think the Sachikos will sound better overall.
