Default any info on these conical horns

Flea Watt: New Fostex dipole conical front horns

They look like FE126e's. I like the idea because I have a pair not getting used. Anybody have a clue on the dimensions or how they might sound?

Ooh. Something about that speaker makes my spine go all tingly. I wonder what woofer is in the 828 cabinet?

Deep breaths Cal. And repeat, I will not build more gorilla coffins, I will not build more gorilla coffins.

Peace,

Dave

Smith horn is a misnomer at best. Regardless, been down the parallel wall horn 'road' with the Altec 210/211 and it's a dead end when high SQ and efficiency is desired/required. Ditto high aspect ratios, i.e. any beyond ~ 1:1.273.

210's seem to sound best on their side and stacked. Big difference from standing

Nice bass bins Cal. Too bad they are bigger than my living room!

Cal Is on the board of directors of the Altec Housing Authority so he gets some perks the rest of us do not. Best regards Moray James.
