...so, any new developments, is the design ready for "prime time"? I'm interested in building a pair for my EsR's, when i can get a hold of the plans, and assuming no problems holding the horn in "alpha/bata" build stage.

I'm sitting here enjoying them... haven't had time to swap in the FE166eN^2 (and access the area i need to to adjust the damping) so that i can treat the FE166esr.

I don't see the fe168Esigma listed on Scott's site for this plan so I assume it won't work?

It has been generally found that FE168eS works in boxes designed for FE166 with (maybe) the need to adjust air cavity size.

So i wouldn't rule it out.

Scott of Woden told me it was designed for the 166 only. The 168ES would require a redesign. Obviously best if he confirmed this as may have changed.

Scott was quite worried when i said we were going to put FE166eSR into Victor. He was pleased that it works... or at least works WAY better than the factory recommended horn (from Berie who has lived with the factory horn for > 6 months).

We'll see how it does vrs FE166 soon enuff (or rather FE166eN^2).

Default slightly OT: FH3 15' apart. Really? And the Victor

Chris, and others:

One thing that many of us forget about is the dimensions of our listening rooms. To get a real appreciation perhaps it can be instructional to create a basic sketchup or similar drawing so others can get an idea of the acoustic spaces we listen in.
Quote:
and in this particular room that places them approx 15 feet apart - so of course, depending on recording mix, channel separation can be a bit exaggerated and center imaging a bit thin and wandering.
Perhaps quick sketches could be posted in members albums or similar? The only place many of have seen before is Dave's central "hall" (best descriptor I could come up with)

Dave: Bernie's work is very impressive. His skill level appears to be amazing. Was the burnt offering at the designated annual location? Where are the marshmallows?

All: It is amazing that Dave, Scott et al continue to develop plans for such an array of drivers. The amount of work required to get a single good enclosure can be a huge task. But good multiple enclosures? Forget about it.

chrisb:: is this in reference to Dave's central hall?
Quote:
For those familiar with the voluminous room, these have little trouble creating a huge soundstage and plenty of bass.
Sometimes I wish I was rich, like chris

hmm, bamboo
When I grow up I wanna be just like Dave. Or maybe chris. OK, how about the mute? (TerryO hope things are going well for you)

Hi Nanook!

I've pretty much recovered and can actually talk again, much to my wife's disappointment.


I just got back last Tuesday from two wonderful weeks in Southern California visiting one of my sons and his family. It was 84 degrees when I left California and that night it got down to 32 degrees in Seattle!

I've just realized that I'm basically a Southern California Surfer Dude trapped in a Washingtonian's body. The very thought of this has caused excruciating mental agony.

Best Regards,
Terry
