Fostex 108 vs FE126

the FE126 is quite a bit more efficient and if levels aren't adjusted it will sound better because it is louder, but the FE108eS has more finese in the critical midrange, and better bass.
But is the sound twice as good, as the FE108's are twice the price of the FE126 drivers???

Very interesting project, Dave! Keep us posted if you can tweak the 126 drivers to perform up to the other drivers.

How do you measure that? Do you take into consideration that performance tends to have a logarithmic relation with price? Do you take into account that the FE108eS can often be had used (ie broken in) for the same price as FE126e? Do you take into account you need twice the watts for the same levels?

The FE126e sounds very good. The modded FE126 better (some of the rough edges taken off).The FE108eS (IMHO) sounds better yet. In the context of a Frugel-Horn build, using FE108s increases the build cost by maybe 25% (ignoring labour but finishing them nicely).

I think which one you pick should have more to do with the amp you have & the levels you play at.

Hi Dave, interesting little horn with cornerloading and I have had plans about something similar a while ago
I could not resist to try and change a little on the last section, but somehow it turned out this way

Very nice, I did not realize it was so small until I saw a picture with a person beside it.

Want some, want some! Be a good replacement for my Zigmas. Hey, Tinitus, I like it! Reminds me of the Zhorn a bit.
