Default Aiko with a fe103en on 126en?

Hi everyone,
Could anyone tell me if one between the fe103en or fe126en may work in the Aiko bvr? It's the only 'horn' that fits my syster's room, so I was thinking of biulding this one too (I'll build a pair of fonkens with ff125wk for myself).

Has anyone tried it?

Ervin

Ervin,

Aiko is for different driver - Fostex FE108e Sigma.

If you like BVR, then you can try out the Lotus or Lotus^2 from the English Auto series:

The Lotus is designed for the Mark Audio CHR-70 driver.

Please note that for designs like this, you will need to give some distance between speaker and listener for horn mouths to integrate.

Hi, Erwin, I believe there is a post by Planet10(Dave) on using fe103 in Aiko, with good results. I am sure Dave will chime in.

What would be a good blh or bvr for each one of this drivers? I'm unsure on which one to choose and I'd really appreciate a little help.

The 103 should work. That box is shortly for the chop though. I was never completely happy with it, although the handful of people who built them seem to have been reasonably happy with the results.

If your room will permit a tall, rear mouth design, the Maeshowe (Mark Audio) / Valiant (Fostex 4") are well worth consideration

We tried FE103A in Aiko with good results. It was speculated the FE126 would work in it, but never tried.

People building back loaded horns tend to build larger cabinets with larger drivers. The smaller FE103En driver tends to get overlooked to a degree for this reason. You might take a hard look at the Sperrin. Its a nice looking project for people with limited space but for not much more money you can get the FE126En and build a larger enclosure.
