Here's a quick pic of one of the speakers.

I ran my VDH CS122 cable direct to the driver (where I attached some speaker plugs). I couldn't decide on what hook-up wire to use so I thought I'd do this until I found some FE207Es and chose the wire.

Very nice grain and finish. Bravo.
Is the Fostex broken in? A notch filter, break in, and a proper loudspeaker cable will stop comments like 'blown up pc speaker'.

They are breaking'n nicely. The highs are starting to even-out. I don't have a notch filter, but did put 5ohm Mills noninductive resisors on the + terminals. This brought the bass level up and smoothed-out the harshness/brightness. They are starting to approach the Omega Grande 8 that I listened to a little while ago (inspiring this DIY tribute).

I'm using a Bryston 3B-ST (a very high damping factor). So, I may try 10ohm to hear how that sounds. I have yet to try these with my t-amp...but I am curious so maybe this weekend.

I'll let me girlfriend have another listen when she gets home from work and try to get her to recant her "computer speaker" comment--though I doubt she will since she wants my PMC DB1s back on the stands.

Apart from creating a current source drive tiping the balance towards bass, dont your resistors create division and compress dynamics? Did you notice dynamic compression also?

I haven't noticed any loss of dynamics and only a little loss in resolution with the Mills resistor.
