Default FE166es-r horn enclosure

Kind of a weird question but why not

I have the Fostex recommended horn enclosures that i built for my FE166esrs awhile ago...but have sense sold the drivers.

Would any other driver work halfway decent in that enclosure or would it be a waste of time to even try?

Thank you for your time

Aside from the standard FE166E, higher priced, possibly a Lowther PM45C / PM55C or DX45 / DX55. I don't know their measured T/S parameters however, and I would take the published ones on their site with about a ton of salt -martin sent me the measurements for his own pair of PM6C drivers, and they were so far out it wasn't even funny. Still superb drivers, I'd be the last to deny it; I'm even thinking seriously about buying a pair in the new year, but something tobe aware of.

Incidentally, why did you sell the ES-Rs? Not to your taste, got an offer you couldn't refuse, or do you plead temporary insanity? ;-)

Cheers
Scott

well i sold them because i was in need of some fast cash and i did get a great deal on them....i kick my self now but i had to get rid of them..oh well...no biggie...its just a toy in the end.

also keep in mind that speaker size dosnt matter as i can slap on a differnt baffle to fit the need


thanks for your suggestions so far!

Jeremy

I have a pair of FE166ES-R from EIFL I am willing to sell, but I am not willing to eat the Japanese shipping on these.
