The thin and tall Sachiko for 126 is very elegant.

Default Half Bruce

With a few weeks I will have 2 homeless FE207e drivers.

Now I like Bruce but unfortunately it is not possible to get such a big (tall) enclosure in the living room

So I was wondering if there is a possibillity to build a half Bruce so with only a big vent on the bottom?

Any use (see attached)?

Alternatively, there's the Replikon: http://www.hornlautsprecher.de/projekt_replikon.htm

I was more hoping of literally a half Bruce: i.e. just take the top mouth of and presto.
I know that it is not that simple but that is what I was thinking of.
I could use the replikon design but I would like it more if it is a "Spawn of" design.

If I can find time, I'll design a one-off. Time is something I don't have much of at present, but I'll do my best. It'd have to be a clean-sheet box as none of the existing cabinets can be halved.

Up side -those cabinets look like they're coming on very nicely indeed.

Second up-side: Derek, who's black Sachiko's are shown on the Frugal-horn site, has just sent me some images of the 126 cabinet based on this layout / design. Here's one of the shots he sent -you can see his black, full-size cabinets with FE206ES-R's lurking in the background. I think they look sensational.

Scott, do you know how Derek painted the sachiko's? and also those thinner versions for the 126, they look absolutley fab too!

I appreciate that you are willing to put some time in it.
Like I mentioned already I am not in a hurry as the drivers will come in a few weeks.
So far thanks alot in advance!

Default Harvey or Chang or Sachiko

I bought wood today. Found some 8x4 cabinet grade birch ply on deal at the HD and had the guy rough cut some pieces for my next over the winter build.

Any last words on the Harvey, Chang or Sachiko for the FE127e?

I have things cut oversize and will have everything re cut to square and measurments.

Last time I was in here, the Chang design was not recommended for the FE127 because of small excursion (Xmax) as I recall. The Sachiko may be for the larger Fostex drivers only.

That leaves the Harvey and her compression chamber design for the
Fostex.


No rush-- this is my winter project.

The Saburo (skinny sachiko -- named after Saburo Sakai) is really targeted at the FE126 (all the Nagaoka-style double horns are for the low Q big magnet Fostex).

There are 2 Changs for the FE127 (undrawn & unnamed at the moment -- loninappleton do you have children?). I have to get some EnABLing done right now, but i'll see if i can get at least 1st pass on them done... they are based on the Classic GR Fonken & Floorstander Fonken (the later will be quite Needle or Zigmahornet in aspect)
