Well, I finally got a pair of FU10RB 4 ohm version at ebay.
I put them in sealed compartments of 1,5 litres aprox. I also managed to put in a third compartment a TA2021 board, a linear power supply of 12 V, an alps volume pot and a switchcraft 3,5 mm jack. I think they call it a boombox. I used an old central DIY speaker box I had layng arround. It's something I had in mind to do: smallish portable hifi system.
Got other things for full proper hifi.
It's okay, but I'm not sure if the drivers need burning or may be the amp need to be changed or ad some crossover parts...
May be the source, as I've been using an iphone and spotify: not the best source!
But the intention is to get the best mini portable hifi system. I cannot compare to my 2 way diy loudspeakers, its just a diferent thing.
I feel that at mid high volumes it can distort; olso it depends on the tracks I'm playing, for example rock or music with lots of instruments and voices it can get a bit muddy.
I've got to keep on trying: which is fun!

One of the changes I was considering is to use the connexelectronic TA2022 with SMPS and volume pot module. Looks very convinient for the power rating and it's small and compact.
Nice to fit in a smaller place.

Any suggestions? Any experiences with these fullranges?

Bye

Hi,

FWIW it doesn't look much like a genuine FR to me, more a wide range
HT bass/mid with good Xmax best used with a small top end tweeter.

This is IMO a high value FR The Madisound Speaker Store

rgds, sreten.

I second that notion!
Clean, fine high frequency and no cone break up hurting your ears

Used in a flat wall mounted enclosure (like a thick picture frame) no baffle step correction needed.

You can add me to the list of Vifa TC9FD fan club. I have built all types of speakers with these. Great sound. Great value.

Hi,

Two in a small box arranged as a 1.5 way away from walls
(as they have full BSC) will image somewhat better I imagine.

Not much not to like about a 4 ohm 1.5 way over a single
driver 8 ohm version, the extra 6dB sensitivity and SPL.

rgds, sreten.

(1.5 way is often called 0.5 way, but I think that is wrong.)

I am currently running dual Vifa's in a mini Karlsonator and they sound fantastic. The extra 6 dB sensitivity really makes them come alive and effortless. They still image very nicely.

Hi,

But the intrinsic BSC and dispersion of a 1.5 way is better than 2 drivers 1 way.
I can't imagine you can't make things better manipulating one (lower) driver.

rgds, sreten.

What circuitry do you suggest - a crossover ( cap) to let the top handle say 1 khz and up and let the bottom run full range? I would rather not use full blown crossovers.

This one is on my short list as a midrange. Maybe, just maybe it is a driver that can behave between 500 and 5K in a 3 way. Not sure on the breakup modes. If we can get a REAL midrange and push the crossovers out of the critical hearing range, then all the "continuity" so sought after by the full range camp may be obtainable and still have a listenable result.

This one is also a fabulous midrange.
I use it with the Monacor DT-28N in a MTM configuration (+ 2 SPH-225 C)
