Default Thanks for the interest

Hi Hugo and George,
I hope you read this reply and thanks for your interest.

My interest is mainly small (10cm to begin with) single full range driver speakers, utilizing enclosure design as opposed to crossover circuits. I want to achieve satisfying results without extra electronics or sub-bass units.

I just finished building a pair of TQWT enclosures for some JBL dual cone 4" drivers (new old stock) I found gathering dust in an auto audio shop in Delhi. The following project will be a modified Fostex rear loaded horn design for a pair of FE103E's I just picked up while in Tokyo.

Cheers, Stuart

Hello Stuart,

Welcome to the forums. You'll find lots to talk about in the full range forum including a small driver you might not have access to: The CSS WR or FR125 that seems quite popular now.

Heres a link
CSS FR125S ... production units playing now...

and another
just ordered my CSS 4.5" XBL wideranges... who else?

Cal

Thanks Cal, for the links. I will check them out. For sure, there are slim pickings in India for FR/WR drivers. I will be moving within the next 6 months, anyway.

FYI, I picked up in Japan (there is a very active DIY community there) a magazine dedicated to DIY speaker people. In this issue comes a small (3", i assume) fostex "kit" to build your own speaker...all components and instructions included in an attached box. It was 2800 yen, which is about 20 USD. I bought two, so I could have a set. It will be interesting to play around with these and see what you can do with the minimum.

CHeers, Stuart

Hi Stuart

Sorry for the delayed reply, I just saw this..

I have built a few speakers systems for my home(for audio and HT), all two ways, a couple of them are designs that Joe D'Appollito has done-the MTM type two ways. I also have a couple of powered subs using passive radiators.

I have heard Lowthers, but never listened to Fostex. I considred trying full raneg but with too many speakers around the house, just gave up!

Rgds

George

Hi George,

Check out the link I posted on the "Indian equivalents to DIY..." thread. Or do a google search for "cadence Brenthworth" and read about these Brentworth single driver enclosures. It just might convert you...

Good luck.

Stuart

Hi,
I do not have the Japan links in front of me, but do a scan of the last week in the "DIY equivalents in India..." thread. I posted the info there.

Japan has some very interesting designs happening and lots of supply. They have a way of giving much attention to aesthetics and unusual materials and do not seem to rely purely on math, and the "ultimate" performance. I suppose part of it is that the experience of listening to music is spacial, visual (for those with eye sight), etc...

Stuart
