Default The Hilding horn

Actually i prefer 2-way speakers, like large lf drivers and large boxes.
But there is something very special with fr drivers, larger ones that can deliver real lf to are sparse, i havent heard any since Coral Beta 10 and Beta 8, these are unobtaiable today.

Stumbled on this tiny one when working on the quite large Experience Live cinema speaker project.

FaitalPRO - Professional Loudspeakers Made in Italy

So, what to do whit this one then?

Test it to find out how it sings.

Quick and dirty, glue it to one end of a large russian toiletpaper core.

Sound below a normal A awfull or nonexisting, but above that, really astonishing.

What do we do then?
Rear loaded horn? Why not!

Maybe like this?

Is your unit the 3FE20, it does looks more like it? The link points to the 3FE22.

I was looking at the former as a second driver to try in a small BLH I just made for Fostex FF85WK. Let us know if you build that back horn.

Then bring it home and hook up, right?

Letting them rest here until i know how to use them.

Havenīt had that much time for listening yet but the first impression is pure fun,
this little driver plays music in a very unstrained and realistic way.

After just a couple of hours listening i wanted to check if my ears and wishfull thinking was deceiving me.

In front of driver, 20cm distance, some hundred hours still needed to break in the drivers.

You cantīt use a 10cm tall speaker as a floor stander, no not if You, like me, are stupid,
Itīs not 10cm tall, itīs 10cm wide.

Perfect, it even points it upward towards your ears

Ingvar, do you like the SD feet under your OY speakers? Would you recommend I get them too?
