Default Fostex Tweeters : T90A, T900A, T500A

Hello.

I was wondering if there was a great difference between T90A, T900A and T500A ? Does it justify the cost ? The tweeter would be used over 13-14Khz

I have a FT96H, how would you compare it to the others ?

Thanks for your help.

Greg.

I have both the FT96H and the T90A, and prefer the T90A as
sounding warmer and more extended. The comparison is
like the (discontinued) Audax PR120 vs the PR130.

I cross them both up around 10KHz.

I have not played with the T900A and T500A.

Thanks for your reply.

Yeah I was pretty sure that the T90A was better than the FT96H, that's why I am going to put the FT96H on the FE168EZ which are my surround speakers and get new tweeters for the FE208EZ.

I am now wondering what could bring the T900A or the T500A. But I think it will be T90A or T900A.

Thanks.

PS : funny thing, I am making an Audax kit with a PR130

For me there is no comparison, when I listen to B&W speakers I am quite bored and I find nothing natural. They seem to smooth all the edges.
I didn't listen to Triangle speakers for a long time.

Hi,

Which kind of music you can listen using these full range speakers ? You need also a subwoofer to work with these speakers ?

Thanks,

Alexandre.

Hi,

I listen to a lot of kind of music but mostly rock and metal music.

Depending on what and how you listen to music, a subwoofer is quite recommended.

I have backhorn enclosures for my FE208EZ, you can listen to music without a subwoofer. But depending on how I feel and the music I am listening to I plug or not the bass speakers. Crossover frequency variying from 80 to 200Hz.

Greg.

Greg,

Do you have the recommended enclosures from Fostex for your 208EZs?
A friend of mine is planning to build them and he is wondering how they sound.
He allready has order a pair of 208EZ and a pair of T90A.
Do you use a different cap instead of 1uF that is reccomended for the T900A?Or the same?
