those are still under assessment - but in an significantly different enough enclosure design than we're used to hearing Fostex drivers in (i.e. the Vampyr), that there are 2 variables at play

FF105wk, only on early testing, is probably closer to FF125 than FF85. It is a quite good driver, and a surprising amount of bottom can be pulled out of it. Our 1st R&D set were scopped up for Mario's ceramic wedges, we have the 2nd set in Vampyr-V.

Well I bought the FF105wks and never used them. I sold them before I could play around and put them in boxes? I still think the FF 85wk and the FE 126en are my favs. I did have a pair of their 8 inch fullrange drivers the FE 206E and they were spooky real. I have also had the mark audio Alpair 6 -p's nice little drivers. I bought these drivers from parts express years ago the Tang Band Titanium cone drivers. They were way to bright and
no bass. I also had the First run of the Css w125 fullrange drivers years ago. They were to neutral sounding. Really didn't reach out anf grab me if I am using the terms right. I was up set when Aura stop making their 3 inch paper cone driver one of the best 3 inch drivers that is not a fostex.
I am so use to fullrange drivers that when I went into a hi-fi shop to listen to a new pair of speakers they sound so unnatural and unreal sounding. It seemed a box was playing the music instead of the speaker playing the music. Sorry about getting off track. Just wanted to share I am a fullrange driver man for life. I thank everyone here and at at the fullrange driver forum for helping me see the light even if you have to do a fast speaker it still is fullrange. C.R.
