TABAQ is similar but smoother on the bottom end from what I have read. I have not built it but have been threatening to do so with a pair of new W3-871S that have benn sitting in boxes for years.

I would like to build a pair of needles using the Peerless FR35/8 (should be similar to Vifa 9BN119/8).

Does someone has an idea for the notch filter?

I wanted to build a Metronome with the Vifa (my favorite driver) but Jim Shearer who built the FH3-inspired horn for the Vifa says not to bother as it would be similar in sound to the FH3-inspired horn which I have already - a fantastic sounding speaker if anyone wants to give it a try. Here is link to Jim Shearer's build with measurements and listening impressions. It does not need any BSC - plenty of bass from horn.

I have a question? What Tang Band driver would you use in place of the W3-871S Drivers? This would be great in my mom and dads new music room in there house? Thanks N.S.

Alternate for W3-871S would be:

Tang Band W3-593SF 3" Full Range Silver Cone Driver 264-809

Note similar specs and looks. The pin-cushion frame might be a shortcoming for flush mounting.

if you're going to order from PE, you may also want to consider trying out a pair of the tang band w3-881si's on buyout, they're supposed to be pretty nice for the cost.

i've also built these using the Hivi B3N and M3N, and like the M3N a lot. but it does take two LCR filters to get it there, so the cost is higher - prob $30-35 in filter parts plus the drivers.

I want to build the simple Visaton version. Should I use the 4 Ohm drivers, or 8 Ohm? Or is that entirely dependent on the amp used? I have an SMSL TA2024. Something tells me that this is not enough to run these speakers properly, due to the low efficiency of the drivers. Will I need something more powerful? I've been looking at a TA2021 (2x25W) solution.
