Default Driver for Buschhorn

Hello

This is my latest "project", a Buschhorn, and I need help.

I live in a 3*4-meters room, pretty crowded with furniture, so I'm not very sure if a horn is a very suitable speaker in my case (or any speaker).

I'm using a hitachi mosfet amp, soon with a tube preamp.

I need a new pair of speakers, and the Buschhorn seems great.
My first option is Visaton FRS8, which is also available without problems, but for a second option, an up-grade, I don't know where to go!!

My options are limited: Visaton, Monacor, SAL, maybe P.Audio, Vifa and Morel.

Vifa 10 BGS is a very good solution, but I can't find it on
http://www.tymphany.com/prodvifa.php
it seems it's not in production anymore.

What can I use as a replacement for Visaton FRS8?
Fostex is not an option.

Dear Tuliman,

If you went for the Buschhorn Mk II and wanted to use the Visaton FR10 I could let you have a pair for the cost of the postage.

Regards - Jem

I found the following vivas on Spectumaudio:
10BG120/6 , 10BGS119/8 und 9BGS119/8.

When you have the money for a highend solution the much-praised Veravox 5 should also be a fine.

Default Fostex FE108E Sigma

wonderful midrange - driven with a nice little EL84 SET, I'd fallen asleep many an evening listening to mine

unwisely I sold them and moved on to other and so far less satisfying speaker projects

That's too bad... otherwise I'd have recommended the FE108EZ, too. I doubt a B'Horn can get any better than that.

Best regards,

Oliver

Thank you for your answers

@jemraid, thank you for your offer, but for 12 euro for a Visaton...I'll probably pay more for shipping.

Somebody suggested me these Vifas:

http://www.oregondv.com/Vifa_Speakers_M10MD39-08.htm
http://www.tymphany.com/prodvifa.php - MG10MD09-08

Tha last one, seems to be the closest to 10 BGS as TS.
The first one doesn't really seem to be a full range.

The Supravox 135LB is a bit cheaper than the Veravox 5, and Reson use it in BLHs.

- TG9FD-10-08
- TG9FSD10-08
- TG9WD-10-08
- TG9SD-10-08
- MG10MD09-08
- MG10SD09-08

And Vifa 10 BGS, or 9 BGS.
...and Visaton FRS8 and I want a horn.

I have e-mailed Tom Zurowski about his experience with Vifa or Monacor in his Zhorns, but he can't help me.

So far, the best choice it seems to be a Buschhorn with a 4" driver. Any sugestions?

Default Buschorn

Radio Shack 40-1197, with phase plugs and a little basket damping

Now if you can get your hands on a pair of the vintage Foster OEM driver aka FE103a, these are pretty darned good in the Buschorn.

Which driver is the "real" Fe103a??

If importing new or E-bay acquired vintage drivers is difficult or too expensive for your situation, my apologies.
