Default FE108ESigma

Hi there,

is 65 Euro, thatīs 80.6$, okay for one FE108ESigma?
Iīm considering buying a pair...

Iīve read a lot about the FE108E and also a lot about designs including this fella, but I havenīt heard a lot about the FE108ESigma.

Any oppinions? Are ther interchangeable? Can I use a FE108E Enclosure-Design with the FE108ESigma?

Thanks for reading, David

Hi Rodeodave,

I don't know about the FE108S but here is the recommanded enclosure for this driver I found on fostex site:

Doesn't look like very straightforward!

The FE108ES is one of my favorite drivers of all time. Definitly a step up from the FE108S. It really likes a horn (or a current amp) to generate bass.

With modifications to the compression chamber it can be put into the buschorn II.

Yep, might be true. But I think Iīll give it a try anyway. Maybe Iīll build a downscaled "prototype" out of cardboard first, to see where all the parts should go...
I know that you probably know as little as I do about this design, but a few questions anyway:

The "Sound Absorbents", thatīs damping material, right?
Whatīs up with parts 21 to 25? Why is there only one piece ā per speaker?
What are the "2 - ø20 holes" (on the back, top) for?
Where does the terminal board go?

Yeah, that makes me confident, plus, Iīll be using a current amp, thatīs good.

Thanks for your replies, David

i konw that enclosures can't be downscaled if you want a working version.
i just couldn't figure out how the thingy look like in 3D.
plus i wanted to figure out where i should start glueing parts together.

Good questions. Let me add another: Why cut those six blocks just under the driver, only to glue them back together again?

The pieces 21-25 are reinforcements.
The littles blocks can change the volume of the cell and tune the sound

HEY RODEODAVE!

May I ask where you are going to buy the FE108EZ? Prices I saw are quite higher than the one you got.
