Any chance of your redoing the images in the gallery? I wanted to see them but it became obvious that I am not going to live long enough for them to download.

Timn8ter, thank you for you suggestions.

can you also please comment on my question 4 posts above since i think you worked closely with both drivers.
And I would like to say that your work is greatly appreciated. As a Junior EE student i learned a lot reading your website and pdf files. Thank you.

A better description is an OEM FE103 with an extra magnet for more sensitivity & a bit lower Q. (ie built by Foster to ACRs design specs)

Hello Timn8ter,
How would you compare 167E to 207E in ML TLs. say for 50% Music, 50% theater. Is Beaming from larger mains a problem for HT? Does beaming from 167E & 207E differ a lot. I understand that beaming for CC is actually very good.
Another thing: i see u did not recommend SuperTweeter for 167E but did for 207E. Do 167E sound more extended? How is the camparison of bass? If you were to do it all over again which driver would you chose?
As for me i was thinking 207E+ST MLTL and 167E MLTL(F3=50-60Hz) for center, 127MLTL(F3=60-70hz) for surround. Maybe u'll change my mind now.(i did not want to make surround smaller than 127E since i use it for DVD-Audio sometimes and i cross my sub as low as i can because i can hear where the bass is coming from)

Thank you, if you can tell me some other things i should note it would be good.
www.fostexspeakers.com will get you started with speakers and plans for a HT setup using the 206 or 207.
