Default FF125K in FH ?

Hi!
Have anybody tried other drivers than the FE126e or 108Ez in the FH?

I have looked at the FF125K datasheet and it looks like it might be a possible "drop-in" replacement. Basket and magnet seems to be identical to FE126, but with a different cone using an aluminum center dome/dustcap.

Why?,
well I do not know much about the FF series, but I have read some indications that they maybe could be a little smoother sounding than the little forward sounding FE series.


SveinB.

The hope is that a wide variaty of drivers will be tried.

I've had personal experience with FE126 & FE108eS, Josh is using FE127, and here is a Bulgarian build using "Sofaital" (made in France) drivers

PS: early days still in the life of the Frugel-Horn and we are already seeing some really nice builds with a lot of artistic flare.

Now that's one cool looking pair of frugels! The idea of the supra-baffle is nice, but they look so extremely sleek nude!!
