Default Dalek and the fe166en

Now i have some 'Time' and some 'Money', Im looking to build a diy hifi system (again) after a 16yr lay-off. Mother got the last build as i was fed-up of her poxy one box system,it still sounds good all these years later, though it could prolly do with a bit of a service ect.
Just recently ive been listening to alot of simply arranged music and thought of Mr.Pass's electronics and of horn 'speekers..................

Zillion credit Question is, will/would the new fe166en work in the Dalek horn?

I did see the post by Oktyabr asking the same Q but regarding Ron Clarke's Austin A166, so i went and looked for info on the A166 and see from the 'final' drawing that theres some le-way in the chamber to make it larger and pack it down to lower the internal volume. It says in the orig Dalek artical that the horn throat was too big and was altered by useing sand filled cones, the drive chamber could also be made detachable for tuneing.
just a thought like.

Any thoughts?

FE166En should work fine. You might need to fine tune the air-cavity

No. You'll have to play it by ear.
