The drawing is linked off the Spawn page at the Frugal-Horn site (in the plan documents table)... i store all the pictures & big documents on my dotMac space for maximum speed (Apple has VERY big pipes)

With 500 + hrs on thm the Lyeco's character has not changed significantly for the better... i really want to pop the FE108eS in, but was i open up the hole for them, a new supraBaffle would be required for the Lyeco.... i'll probably do it anyway.

I did a quick tweeter experiment, that didn't help...

I'm not going to cut wood immediately anyway. I haven't figured out
exactly what materials will be on deal for this. Will try to catch up on the thread.


While I've seen the gallery of Frugals built, I haven't seen any Harvey's.

How to best describe it? The midrange is quite "murky" & coloured.

Yep, I'm backtracking on reading the thread and have found some good pics there.

BTW when will the verdict be in on the preferability of the BVH (still don't know that means) over the Nagaoka plate style?

BVR = Big Vent Reflex.

As a generalization, the drivers that prefer horns (ie FExx6) will likely do better in the Nagaoka stle boxes & the ones not usually associated with horns (ie FExx7) in the BVRs... the BVRs thou are very driver tolerant and seem pefectly happy with things like the FE126, FE166 and 208eS (all examples of successful Harvey, iris & Bruce)

Bummer, I was hoping they performed as good as they look. Oh well, just another #$%^& with a pretty 'face'.

Seems a shame doesn't it.

Dave, if you think it'd help & want to try some physical modifications, by all means, go for it. If you can't get them singing, then I reckon the rest of us would struggle.
