Ehmmm... big problem here...buying the fostex ff125wk from madisound would cost me around 53$ for shipping to italy, which means almost another pair of drivers.. does anyone know another site where to buy them? I'm from italy, so an european seller would be perfect, but what matters is cost, so if you have any suggestion, please tell me!

Prices in the USA are always cheaper than in Europe. But, indeed you have to include shipping, and also custom tax which can be disappointing as well if next to a certain tax rate they also ask a "20 euro handling fee", which is very well possible.

Hence, look at the distributor list:
Europe Distributors | Fostex

From this list I learn that there is an Italian distributor, but the link doesn't work anymore. But there are other countries to explore.
A German fullrange specialist webshop (talking about a niche market focus!) is Breitbandlautsprecher und mehr - SpectrumAudio

Deni,

FE206 really needs a horn or similar. 8 litres tuned to 90 Hz, ~F3 110 Hz, ~F10 85 Hz.

Deni, everybody says that because quite simply, there is no good POSSIBLE fullrange bookshelf box design for the FE206En. Don't even try it, there's only tears in that direction.
Just put the data in WinISD and try to find a compact enclosure that works low enough. You won't be able to.

The only usage I see for the FE206En in a compact enclosure is as a sattelite speaker with a well-aligned separate active woofer for the lower frequencies, and of course assuming that you can get them to sound "right" together. This is exactly what Horst Muller proposes in one of his several clever designs: Trumpet-Sat (check the measurements link as well, it is an interesting design from say 120 hz onwards)

For bookshelf enclosures with Fostex look at the FFxx5WK series, possibly combined with a tweeter for the bigger ones. Or, investigate MarkAudio or some Tang Band drivers.

It is doable.

What you need is sufficient series resistance (or use an amplifier with variable output impedance) to raise Qes such that Qts hits ~0.3-0.4

Wasteful, yes, but it works according to winISD and the like.

Hi,

I bought the same drivers on ebay at the German ebay shop art-of-sound-sb.
Just make a search in ebay.it of fostex ff 15 wk on ebay.it.

The service was good. The drivers arrived at home in a couple of days
