Default Speakers for TV

Hi, I have a pair of unused Fostex Fe126En and a pair of unused Tang Band W4-1879 one. I would try to build a couple of cabinets to be attached to my TV, using a Virtue Two T-Amp. Cabinets shuold have a maximum height of 50-55 cm. Can you suggest in your opinion if they are better Fostex or TB? And what kind of enclosure do you suggest: BR or labyrinth?
Thanks in advance to all of you

Ziocalepino,

From the specs looks like the TB would be a better bet in a smaller cabinet. XMAX is more, QTS is higher - better bet for a BR type of cab, while the Fostex is a candidate for horn loading (which will not be small cabs).

Also an MLTL like the TABAQ might work out, though not sure if all TB 4" drivers would be suitable. There is a folded TABAQ which is around 45 cm IIRC

Thanks zman, where can I find folded TABAQ plans? Also in my opinion TB is better. I've tried them in BiB enclosures and basses are impressive! But Bib are "too Big"!

ziocalepino,

BiB are quite easy to build and very nice sounding, but size is big - WAF is low.

Here you go with the thread on TABAQ and link to folded version:

TABAQ TL for Tang Band

I can't recall all of the discussion on that thread, but likely there are some examples of 4" drivers too...

I can recommend the "vifa fantasic" tml!
http://www.hifi-forum.de/index.php?a...thread=246&z=1
very inexpensive driver, wide + shallow cabinets (44cm x 65cm x 6,7cm). Perfect for the wall next to your flat screen tv or computer monitor. And no filter required!
I just finished putting my cabs together, tomorrow the drivers go in.

Sayrum,

An interesting project indeed - this is a speaker with high WAF - nearly invisible!

Let us know you listening impressions.

i finished the vifantastic last night.



wunderbar!

they are a bit small compared to my main speakers (3ways with d'appolito midrange + double bass), but the vifantastic sound great!

just the "tiny" driver in a tml enclosure. coherent, detailed + complete. for low to medium listening levels. so as a tv speaker they work great

divers are only €15 each here in germany + ~€15-20 for the rest (per side).
no filter, so smooth and preety efficient.
