Default really newb question- fe127e

hi all-

i've been reading this and other full range forums for the past couple of weeks and i've decided to put together my own set of speakers. i ordered a pair of fe127e's from madisound and am now looking for a box to put them in.

i thought i saw somewhere plans for a small folded tower but can't find it now. i believe the dimensions were app. 36 tall by 6 wide by 12 deep- all in inches.

if anyone can point me in the right direction i'd really appreciate it.

thanks and merry christmas!

Default Fe127e

Thanks to Ed Shilling I guess it'll be a while before Madisound has the FE126 back in stock


The monopoles are a little lacking in bass extension and "slam" in a large room, and for most could benefit from powered bass augmentation.

There's also the Bipole version, which provided you've got the room, suffers far less from that problem: with a decent GC or functioning mini-aleph, the bass is a cunning stunt!

The height of the actual enclosure is approx 36", but since that places the driver too low for my preference, the design was modified to accomodate a "built in" stand. Finished height could be an issue as far as WAF is concerned.

thanks guys. i read that entire thread and i don't know how i couldn't find it again- info overload maybe?

i actually ordered the fe126's from madisound but they called me and said they were out of stock so i settled for the 127's. my hearing is so bad i probably won't be able to tell the difference anyway

thanks again,

Well, first of all I'm repeating myself, but you can thank our buddy Ed Shilling for the current shortage of FE126. I wonder how soon in the New Year before they're restocked?

Secondly, unless you're specifically going for a RLH or double bass reflex, the 127 is probably an easier driver to work with anyway.

Due to major differences in T/S parameters between the two drivers, I'd imagine it would be rather difficult to find a single enclosure design that could be optimized for both and permit a direct comparison. It's probably a "horses for courses" situation


The FE127 ain't chopped liver

I like mine just fine too.

Soon i will build a new smaller cabinet for my 127e... based on the mltl discussed in another thread.

Peace,
Godzilla
