Question Can the Fostex FE206en be used in the Sachiko?

Hello all,

I have long been contemplating building the Sachiko (The Spawn Family of Double Horns). Alas, the Fostex FE206e drivers for which the Sachiko was originally designed were no longer available, replaced by the Fostex FE206en. Not having an understanding of the various speaker parameters (but the parameters do differ), I would like to ask the following two questions:

1. Is it optimal if I use the Fostex FE206en for the Sachiko enclosure, or should specifically be using FE206e instead?
2. Are the FE206e's available anywhere for sale? (e.g., as new old stock?)

Any input will be greatly appreciated.


God bless,

FE206En is fine. Measured parameters are much closer than the factory data would suggest.
