I was waiting who comes up with a frugel for the sigmas., I do wonder why is there so little use of the 168EZ sigma???
I think its a good driver albeit a little more expensive.

The 168 goes into FHXL (which these are).

It was reasonably popular a few years back, but it's been around a while now & isn't cheap, plus there are more units out there, so it's slipped off the radar a bit.

Good morning,

@scotmosoe, @planet10
you can see , the speaker was standing on a bad place, but anyway the sound was good. He has make´s his job well.

I think, when the 2. is ready, i can tell you more about the sound. At the moment the speakers have to play with an old "marantz pm66 se". Next month, i hope so i will get a new tube-amp. It will be an OPERA AUDIO Cyber 100S with 4 300b Tubes.

Is it possible to buy plans for the FHXL? Shipping flat packs to India is simply not practical. Thanks.

It is time to ease these into full release.

The plans are pretty much ready to go. Like the FH3 we (Scott, Chris, andmyself) get no monetary benefit from these. Donate a minimum of $10 to diyAudio.com and send me your receipt and i'll get you the URL for the planset.

Thanks Dave! I'll do it. I trust that the FHXLs are one of the best to house the 168Sigmas.
