Yes, yes.

You will need to talk to Madisound. The design was gifted to them to with what they want. Because of a scarcity of FE126En it has taken a year to get from there to here.

The FHMk3 is a consideration for me. Size and shape is pretty much like the Brynn IIRC. No mFonkens for me for now.

I've been practicing recutting the driver hole in a BIB just to drop an MA speak in to see what happens. First attempt was less than satisfactory but that's my router technique to blame.

I wish it was as simple as designing a box tuned for a certain frequency and simply dropping drivers in.

Hi Dave, fantastic!

Maybe these will be at RMAF in Madisound's room. If so, I will definitely give them a listen.

And *I* wish there was a BIB spreadsheet for all speakers.


But off topic for this thread.

Well actually without additional feet / outriggers like Colin's excellent design, the FH taller (~900mm) and deeper but not as wide as the Brynn, but most significantly in terms of room placement is that the rear mouth exit does require at least some distance from rear / corner boundaries. For the FE126E, retaining proximity to the corners for reinforcement will probably work best for most folks - with other drivers shown to work in this enclosure that's not required at all.


While the mFonken is surprisingly good, it was never really intended as more than a near field mini / computer monitor unless supplemented by woofers - (generally I'd suggest stereo and XO in the upper mid-bass range for these guys)

what mr Zilla said - even with a perfectly machined fit, chances are hit or miss that the BIB (or many other designs) would work as well as with the drivers for which they were intended

It looks like the plan will be freely downloadable. I just did a bunch of detail revisions for Madisound to prep it for release.

No we didn't but given how often FE126 & FE108eS are interchanged i suspect someone will.
