I´m back again.

my Frugel (with the Visaton Fe 168ez sigma)work´s now a long time and I was happy with them a couple of month´s. But now for a wile i ´m missing the bass and the middle tons are very in front. we doing a lot of things to correct it, but nothing will help.(?????)
what can i doe to get mor deeper sound. Im not interestet about an extra bassbox.

Is it possible to change the 6" speaker for an 8" speaker??

sorry about my bad english. I hope you understand what i want.

For more bass from the FHXL than you're currently getting with the 168s, the FF165WK, or either of the Alpair 10s would at the top of my list.

While there are no doubt lots of 8" models you could possibly shoe-horn into the XLs- such as TB W18-772s, you'd probably be in uncharted waters in terms of damping fill.

I've built XLs for both models of A10, as well as FF165WK, and probably overall prefer the 10P

Dave,

I just sent you an email through the Frugal Horn website. I forwarded you the email I received from diyaudio.com regarding my donation and membership.

I would like to get FHXL build plans. I'll be using 18mm.

Don't rush, enjoy your Sunday. Please let me know this week if there's anything else you need, (i.e., my receipt from PayPal).

Cheers,
AlexQS

Has anyone attempted to shoe-horn (pun intended) a Lowther 8" driver into the XL? Looks just about possible, especially if you stretch the width by a few mm...

Interesting thought!
I happen to have a pair of unused AER MD3B in the cupboard from an as yet unrealised OB project.
AER | bd
I'm in a different house now and have size constraints so am considering other options.
... I think it might be just too tight to shoe-horn them in though :-S

Even if possible, any thoughts on suitability or unsuitability?

The drawings of the XL show 239mm as the width. Using 18mm material that leaves 203mm internal dimension. The cutout for a Lowther is 190mm diameter and the fixing holes are on a 208mm PCD. So it fits with about 6.5mm either side of the cutout. Shouldn't ne a problem ;-)

I would be fascinated to see (hear) what it sounds like.
