+1!! If for some reason you really don't want to use the FF125wk (which would surprise me), then you could look at the FF105wk or the FE103en.

Cheers, Jim

Many thanks to Jim for your advice on using my FE 103S drivers.

I can hear the table saw warming up as I type!

For the FF125wk, I really advise to do the glue mod at the back of the driver (zig two-way glue is applied to the back of the driver where the surround meet the cone), the one Planet10 uses, helps tame the driver's sibillance (a 7khz peak that can make it unlistenable).
Should you be inclined to go all out on the EnAbl process, all the better

Interestingly, AmadeusMozart built a Met for the FF125WK and FF105WK. It seemed he may have slightly preferred the FF105WK but it was probably a close call. Look back at around 101.

Sorry, mind fade.
I have Fostex FE108EΣ for which I have metronome drawings by Steve Cresswell (with input by D Dlugos & S Lindgren) dated 31-August-06 / updated 28-august-2007

I have a pair of original Philips AD9710M full range 8" drivers with the unusual Ticonal magnet material. They look like they would deliver OK bass, although the treble is a bit ragged. Would it will need a uniquely sized cabinet, or will it be close enough to one of the existing Metronome cabinets that have been calculated for other 8" drive units?

I know Gentleman Jim Shearer has been looking into this topic, and I hope he can contribute.

cheers all

OK, is there an existing design regardless of driver size that's at least 184-200 L?
