Here is fullrange set utilizing the CSS FR125S. I'm using these with a Tempest 15" subwoofer that you can see bit of in the left hand corner. The mains are miniOnken. The center channel has the same volume as the mains but no port. The rear surrounds are sealed 7 liter. I've built everything you see. Making furniture is a hobby of mine.
A big screen is placed in front of the TV when I watch DVDs with my projector.
I'm pleased with the sound of these speakers. I use the Panasonic SA-XR50 digital receiver. I'm very pleased with the clean sound it produces.

The miniOs replaced your AR.com jobbies?

My AR's have been moved to another room as a two speaker system utilizing a vintage Dyanaco amp. The combination sounds great for a small intimate listening session.

Never can have too many speakers.

Default Fonkens

Guess i should post a pic of the prototype Fonkens (plans will be posted in my Box Plan Libary). Except for a change to the height of the ports, it turns out that an FE127e works really well in the miniOnken box designed for the FR125S.

I'm currently working on mods to the drivers that will, hopefully, clean up the rough edges without sacrificing the glorious midrange. We are happy with the box. Bass is clean & tight, that being their primamry benefit over the diyRef FE127 ML-TL

and our version of the diyA FR Ref FE127e folded ML-TL (these went to Chris' mom). It is hard to beat these for the cuteness factor.

Amp? Here is where amp/speaker synergy really come into play... the FR125 does decent mids with almost any amp, as the amp gets better the Fostex gets ahead... perhaps not quite as smooth thou (but i'm working on that). With the amps i have, in my room, i prefer the Fostex.

Pic was taken at RAWfest '06. Those are Al's rendition of the Dan Wiggins Apex. Big sound, but kinda confused.
