@qwad:

But for the Jerichos: The German Jericho addicts build it now with the Fostex FE206E without the original notch filter and are very fond of it. My own Jerichos are equipped with the FE204, which is also out of production.

Nice greetings, Berndt

There is a Fostex substitution chart I believe on Madisound which shows the FE208e Sigma as a replacement for the 208 Sigma BUT you will need a tweeter as the e Sigma does not goes as high. I have built a pair of Jericos' with the original 208 Sigma many years ago and must say it is my favorite, the driver seems to take forever to break in though, even after maybe 4 or more years it seems to still sound better with time.

When I had first completed them I was very disappointed, they sounded literally like a bad transistor radio! The speakers I had had for around 2 years already so it was not a break in issue. It turned out to be the stuffing of the compression chamber, it is very sensitive to the amount and type of stuffing used. I used poly batting which is used to stuff cushions and used just a little behind the driver on the rear of the compression chamber and a little at the bottom of same.

The room position also makes quite a difference.
