Default FR125S

The first batch arrived by air on Friday and these will be sent out to a number of people for testing and enclosure design. In addition to the usual ported and sealed designs they are also being tested in horn, MLTL, TL, dipole and in-wall alignments. These will be released or published as soon as available. T/S parameters will be updated shortly. When the sea shipment arrives in about 3 weeks, the drivers will be released for sale.

For some, who took the time to listen to the preproduction samples at the Northwest Audio Review last Saturday, they were the highlight of the day. On certain kinds of music the single driver magic astounds me everyday and I want to upgrade the electronics and sources in front of them with stuff I can't afford.

I've been wondering if they use the same mounting pattern as the WR125S?

Comparing specs they seem quite similar - what causes the sound to be better than the FR range?

Thanks

The difference in the drivers.
From what I remeber Dan told me more copper in the motor as well as different soft parts were needed to get the upper end out to 20k.


Close yes in data but sound.Different for sure.
The FR is a driver that will be going after Jordan for sure with the X92S.

The voice coil has been improved and the surround comes a little bit further down on the cone providing better control. Other than that it is very much like the WR125S. I will be testing a pair and will post my results.

Dan Wiggins is in the middle of testing the first production units and I will make the full tests available when they are complete. Initial frequency response measured on a standard IES baffle is +/- 3 dB from 65Hz to 20KHz!
