Fountek K3 (made with FR89EX)
2 Attachment(s)
I don't know if this will be moved because it's a "do-it-yourself" forum but here's something I found just clicking on the Net:
Products_Fountek Electronics Co.,Ltd

It's a K3 pair of speakers made with the FR89EX. And there's also a Fountek MS88 even though I'm not sure what the little box is for and which drivers are used. :rolleyes:

EDIT: I wanted to make it clear these are on the Fountek website. I just casually wondered whether anyone would want to see Mark Audio, Fostex or others make completed products. Anyway, I found out the small box for the MS88 is an amplifier. Interesting since it means you wouldn't have to go hunting for a cheap Lepai amp. I don't see any sellers on the web though. An open opportunity for someone...?

I think that this one is using the Fountek driver too The Serene Audio Talisman Computer Speaker | InnerFidelity

There's a link to an interresting thread about nearfield listening in the article BTW.

Ah! Thanks for the link. :)

It's nice to see a more objectively-minded view of full range speakers with its limitations (at both extremes). And that they state they are more ideal for near field listening and can't fill a large room easilly and aren't ideal for certain dynamic type of music.

However, even though those full range drivers they described may be custom (that are unaccessible to diyers), I'm excited about the fact that they compared favorably to models like the AudioEngine A2 and even A5. So, this encourages me to continue with my interest in full rangers with the knowledge that they're good for near field listening anyway. (I'm usually at my computer anyway.) (I also read full rangers do better with either tube amps or class D or T amps.)
