I just found this thread. Thought i'd put my two pennies in. I'm using a pair of fe167 en on OB with dual 15" woofers per side to handle bass. Active set up with the mini dsp and three t amps.I use a 2" thick piece of foam behind the 167's because I have to place them close to the walls and found all the reflecting sound to be fatiguing after a short time. In this set up and with the mods iv'e done to the drivers they sound extremely nice. Tons of detail, awesome vocals very clear and revealing with no shout or nastiness. I can listen to them for hrs. I have heard other FR drivers although not the super expensive ones as well as many high end speakers and mine will easily beat or keep pace with the best iv.e heard.I am just starting a build with an el84 amp for the fe,s and I expect it will be a fantastic match.

Kendt, sounds like a nice set up. Love to hear a follow up on how you like the synergy with the el84's.

>>> I'm using a pair of fe167 en on OB...

In a box the Pioneer B20 was a cheap but good sounding driver (with a super tweeter). On an OB (with bass support and the same super tweeter) the sound is phenomenal! If you like the sound of OB - which I do - taking your favorite drivers (for example Kendt's Fostex 167e) you bring the sound up to another level altogether. Therefore, a great full range driver in a box may sound even better on OB (with bass support). So lesser expensive drivers can sound incredible. I don't doubt the 167e produces an amazing sound combined with the 15" woofers.

ive heard the philips, a bit unrefined for my taste but it was a quick listen.

I am not trying to hijack the thread and I am very interested in the discussion. I was wondering if anyone had opinions on the new CSS VWR126X or the previous generation WR125 series?
