Default first fr build

Decided to buy drivers, bout $50 ea, for a fr build.

Read about the sachiko and chang back horns, loved the scale of the cabs.

If you can afford the floor space and near symmetrical placement to corners, Fostex FE126E / Woden Valiant - rear mouth double horn would be at the top of my short list.

Else-wise:

MA CHR70 / Pensil - forward vented ( MLTL)
CSS EL70 or MA CHR70 in FH3
