Deep bass is not my goal. I just thought it seemed like others were trying to do that with this driver. In fact I was going to build them for the living room. My wife likes classical, some country, light rock and music from the Renaissance. She doesn't like deep bass, (it aggravates her rapid heartbeat problem). also she doesn't like large cabinets. So, I probably won't build this design. I'm thinking of doing a small, slim tower with a "stopped pipe" or stuffed pipe design. Still using this Fostex FE166En. I might add the super tweeter on top later. Thanks everyone for weighing in.

Thumbs up That music

Very nice! I listen to music of that kind and nearly every other kind. But my wife, not so much. Thanks for the sample.

I'm really torn between build this model or Frugel-Horn Mk3. Which should I choose? Any opinions?!?

Fugel-Horn is smaller and a lot easier to built but has one disadvantage should be placed in room corners. Position change can bring disapointing results as you may read here: FH3 - I've moved house and now they sound, not so awesome :(

"With the 126, corner loading is all but mandatory to get reasonable LF gain, & even then it's never going to have large amounts of output on the bottom end except in extremely lively rooms. If they're not in corners & you can change the layout a bit to get them there, then that will help a bit. Otherwise we need to consider other things" -Scottmoose

This statement is only true regards the size of the speakers and for any the Fostex drivers that are suited to the FH3 speakers. If you use any the MarkAudio drivers CHR70, CHP70 and Alpair 7 in the FH3 they DO NOT require to be corner loaded and are quite forgiving to position in a room to produce far better bass than any the Fostex can even corner loaded.

Of a choice betwwen the two designs my money would be on building FH3 with Alpair7 gen3 drivers. The FH3 is a better design.

Thank you both for your answers and opinions.
In fact the FH3 have a very important factor for me that is the simplicity of construction. However there is something in this building "concerti clone" that attracts me.
By the way, what is your opinion about using them also for home cinema, in both cases.

Have you compared the two by listening ? What are differences then ?

I have build the FH2 , so can't speak for the FH3. I cannot live without some authority in the bass so I developed the concerti clone.
If You use Dzius BCS , even more authority! (You will lose some , 2/3 dB , sensitivity but they will still be loud)
Each speaker has its own "tone" , I like the Fostex sound but this is Always very personal.
No use in comparing Dave's and my design ; I have great respect for Dave and would never do a saying about wich design is better.
