Default FR125S

It looks very much like the WR125S.

I wonder how it'd do in a Zigmahornet.

I'm not familiar with the design though I found some references to it. Once I have more drivers I'd be happy to give someone a pair if they want to build that design. Please send me a private email (via the website) and we can talk about it.

Hi Bob -

Just one idea for woodworking impaired potential customers: You're offering the first customers pre-cut baffles that are 11 by 6 and one-half. If the baffles were instead the same size as those on the cheap and nice Parts Express .25 liter cabs, you'd be able to direct customers to a ready to go solution to their speaker needs. - Pat

That would be possible but would duplicate what's already included in the PE offering. Such a baflle would also be considerably more expensive and less flexible from a veneer and finish point of view.

Listening to the FR125S in the PE cabinet at fairly loud volume also indicates that the cabinet is not as "dead" as it should be, particularly the large unbraced back. This driver is good enough to warrant a pair of Al's solid 1" walls, braced, ICE damped, reference cabinets with Kevin's new Exodus binding posts, 10-12 AWG silver coated copper wire, etc.

Thanks Bob -

Who is Al? If this is an all-out driver, I'd like to check into an all-out cabinet, too. Thanks - Pat

Out of curiosity Al, if you are marketing those kits for home theater, why not make them sealed for better integration with THX style crossovers, which seem to be the norm nowadays in most home recievers?
