That would be for the FE166, FE167 is designed for vented enclosures.

Thanks for pointing out the typo Dave. I was always referring to the Fe166EN. The FE167 does not even come up when searched on the Madisound site. I have edited my previous post

The FE167E is from the old FExxxE model range, and has been defunct for several years. The 6 1/2in Fostex units in independent measurements frequenly come out at a lower efficiency than the manufacturer claims, placing them at around 1/2dB - 1dB greater sensitivity than the A12P for a given input. There isn't a great deal in it in practice, if anything, and since the A12P has substantially greater linear travel (however you like to measure it), it can handle LF dynamic peaks more effectively than the Fostex. I've had both through here, and like both for different reasons, but the checks & balance sheet generally comes down in favour of the Alpair.

It's designed to be either vented or BH loaded since these are two sides of the same 'coin'.

My fault for not being clearer on that earlier. Fostex had vented boxes in mind with the shielded units, but as you say, they can be used either way.

Learn something new everyday, Never noticed on the spec sheet that it was shielded.

Yeah, presumably that's what did for the FExx7E range in general, what with the decline of CRT screens etc. I get the feeling more were bought for their higher Q than their shielding though.

Right! The FE line was advertised as AV drivers. The advent of LED/LCD/plasma displays made shielding moot.
