And here's the front baffle. Hope he won't mind my posting them here but I always find seeking things out on AA a bind. My nose gets tired you know... At least this is quicker.

-never heard any FR BLH- this one's probably good for that type and IIRC RCA-Fan ran Lowther, several Fostex (and possibly LAB12) on k-slot BLH.

besides coherency, do BLH offer sufficent impact to interest "me"?

Probably depends on the cabinet. The FE208ESigma and FE206E have some serious clobber in the Fostex Factory FE208ESigma cabinet. But technically, that's not a horn. Sounds like one though. I still remember when my friend Simon fired up his 208s in the factory design cabinet at a recent speaker do. Nick had whipped out his torture track: Metallic Live with the San Fransisco Symphony Orchestra. The floor shook. As I haven't heard a Karlson I can't pass comment, but I can say that these things have massive LF heft. Be interesting to load one of the factory cabinets with a K-slot on the front of the mouth.

karlson as usually tuned can't go down deep - imo some coupler have good "inpact" with brief 60-300W peaks - their 97-101dB sensitivity is kinda low for SET - there must not be much new playing around with Karlson - I think they are effectively dead. I also think Karlson-coupler can be fun toys for the adventuresome (within reason) and can deliver a fair amount of power output with fairly low cone excursion.

can a 20cm fullrange augmented with 1-2 15" woofer on OB compete with most BLH for enjoyment factor and vocal quality ? what about colorations in BLH - must be a bit (?) waht about integration issue between 15 and 8?

what differentiates the transition into calling a BLH a "real horn"? I've built 3/16 55Hz which was 15 cubic feet

Thanks to all for your feedback.


It seems that my Future Ex-Wife Acceptance Factor (FEWAF) is pointing me in the direction of the Fostex factory recommended enclosure for the F206 ES-R.

So this will be it, for the sake of peace at home. I would love to do the BIB but when you factor in the other incidental costs (lawyer fees, throwing the pet rabbit in the BIB so it gets bored and can chew on the inclined panel, and so forth), this seems like a decent deal after all.

sometimes you win some, sometimes you lose some. So I tell my Mother-In-Law when she complains about her boyfriends.

I will keep you posted on the building.

thanks again, Sierra

Good luck building your project and enjoy it!

“when she complains about her boyfriends…”

Sounds like your ex needs a serious whomping on the behind with the internal BIB baffle!

Sierra, in the HP Reflectors thread, I had a friend post a couple photos of my walnut finished Fostex recommended horns for the FE206ESR. Of course, I feel they look great in my living room, and it will give your future ex and idea of their size and looks. I hope she does`nt become your ex, I hope the wonderful music will bring you closer together.

I think my ex-EX's disliked me even more than the speaker messes
