Default Foster 16F3 cabinet advice needed!

Hi DIYers,

I've just bought a pair of like new Foster 16F3 drivers and been trying to find out a suitabe cabinet plan for them, but I couldn't. There's no information related to this driver.

I am wondering if I could use Fostex FE167E recommended cabinet plan for my Foster 16F3. Is it possible?

If you guys have experiences with cabinet for Foster 16F3, please share or give me an advice.

Thanks in advance.

Can you post pictures, i've never seen one of these. To do a proper cabinet you need to know about these specific drivers. But if you had a guess what modern driver was closest FE167 would be it. If you go with a box where the box dominates, like a TL kinda boz you will likely have more latitude for differences.

Thanks Dave for your reply.

These are fullrange drivers with diameter of 16cm (~ 6.5in), that's why I think about Fostex FE167E cabinet.

Thanx for the pics, those look beautiful.

They could be considered the great-great...great grandmother of the FE167

One more cabinet option is Half Chilli Chang.

Any idea is welcome.
