Default W4-1320sb

Has ayone played around with them yet? I cant find a thing on the net about them. They're being sold at parts express.

They look to be almost a drop in replayment for fe103e and fe108ez horns. With very little modification.

Yah, the Tang Bands have a little more spl, but seem a little ruffer at the top end than the CSS fr125's do. A bonus is the TB's are $35 cheaper than the fr125's. I have ordered the TB's today and will recieve them sometime tomarrow.

Thanks,

I think I'm going to start them off in Boushorns, and see were I go from there!

Waiting for my pair to arrive as well.

I am anxious to see what people come up with. Mine will be going into a simple bass reflex bookshelf first. Would have had the enclosures built this weekend but I fell ill.

Mine are going into a 9.25 x 6.25 x 7.25 dp 3/4" MDF 2.5 liter cabinet. Going virtually against the wall and the bass alignment looks better for this than FR-125.
I have an e-mail to Allen at T-B about vented vs. sealed. They look like they are to be vented but so close to the wall - what's the difference?
Also with the 8dB peak at 15-20kHz they apepar to be in break-up mode. Anyhow much better Qms than Fostex so I hope they won't have that bright edge Fostex are known for.
I ran my finger around the bamboo driver paper and I must say it is the most DEAD sound I have ever heard - a very good sign I think. I like the small Neo motor which allows better air flow behind the driver. Also cast frame is very nice.
Hopefully they will be forgiving enough and match well with "T" amp - my next project when time allows.

Well they are nowhere near as bright as my FE206e's. I listen to mine between on axis to 10 deg. toe in. I haven't listen to any other of Foxtex driver to compair.

All a can say is that the W4-1320 is smooth, and only once and a whlile have a bright egde. Could be that bump in that range.

The 1320sb's are out of the OB's and in old shop cab that were designed for the W4-616. I think 4L 1.5" x 5" port? Not perfect, but 90% of the time you can't pick the drivers position out of the sound field.

Mine will be going into Modded Bouchhorn MKII

Corloc,
Thanks for the info. The T-B has a 4dB "bump" at 5.5kHz but pretty narrow and still not as bad as most other F-R drivers I've seen.
You like them better than the paper TB W4-616?
