Awesome thanks!

Would corner loading it be a big benefit? Also how do you like it compared to the Aikos you had with the FE108E Sigmas, big improvement?

I am getting a pair of the ES-Rs and bringing them to MIT with me. I will build some cabs when I get there and design the dorm layout around the sound system

Hello dave. I tryed to e-mail scott today and I got 2 bounced back e-mails? Maybe something is wrong on his end. I was looking at the sperrin box for the fostex fe103en speaker and I had a few questions? Also how would I get a hold of scott now? C.R.

So tell me, are the Hiro, Victor and Harouna all roughly the same height ? I still have a pair of never used 166esr in the boxes from original sale at solen and I have yet to build something. I veered off the single full range path onto open baffles with vintage coax and triax drivers but might find the courage to build something for these special drivers. I just don't have the room for something from the looks of it very tall.

Cheers
Paba

Haruna is the successor to Hiro and is 6' tall. Victor is 5' tall

well 5 feet tall, certainly could work, since my current open baffles are 4 ft tall.
I'll have to bookmark that victor.
Thanks

Just curious...

Wondering how close to the wall they need to be?? Does a foot away produce an overwhelming amount of bass or does it need to be that close just to get enough to balance out the top end??

At the time they were here they were somewhere like 15-24" out from the wall. Bass was very good. Wife didn't like them, they blocked the TV when sitting at the dinner table.
