Default ML TL Fostex FE 167 E

Hello

I am building a ML TL with the fullrange 6"speaker from Fostex FE 167 E.
The dimensions will be height= 40" depht= 10 1/2' and wide = 8 1/2 1" and a port which will be round 3" and 4 1/4" long about 1 1/4" from the bottum

BSC will be L= 2 mH and R=6 ohm.

And most important no stuffing

How long must they burn in?

Pictures coming soon

Hello there:
I have been listening to mine for ten months now. I love everything about them with possible exception of bass intensity(My sub has solved that concern though). While I was building my cabinets I mounted the drivers to a baffle and let the local FM station warm them up for me. This lasted about a month or so. I set them up in my beer and wine room letting them play continuously. As you already have your design figured out you will not need to take any measurements so burning them in is not a big deal thing. I would be inclined to hook them up and let them play. You will notice a gradual change over the first two or three hundred hours. They will sound different from what you are currently using. Both your ears and the drivers will eventually settle down and you will enjoy the music and your creation.
Good luck and keep us posted

I modeled it with Martin's software. Here's what the FR graph looks like with no stuffing. Are you sure this is what you want?

[Added later: Are those inside dimensions? I assumed they were.]

The MkII version is an evolutionary improvement upon the original design. Over the three years since I published the original FT-1600, I have tried to improve the mid-range presence by reducing the amount of stuffing in the cabinet

So in his mkII version there is almost no stuffing !!!
