I would love to have a go at making a pair myself and would appreciate any help that this forum might be able to provide an how to get started.

Cheers

Hey badman,

Why the Fostex 225k over the Lowther? Also, have you tried any other Fostex drivers in the Rethm cabs?

Well, those were the stands I had for the heils. I made some slick stands, they're now OVER the rethms (gives them lots of clearance, important since they're bipole tweeters).

No, I haven't tried any other fostex in the cabs, I'm not really inclined to either- the FF225k has a VERY smooth response, a very strong motor, and appropriate dispersion, even at 6500, to match the heils in terms of power response.

Oh and it sounds VERY good

Good to hear that FR mesurements on that 8" Fostex can be trusted

And you have no problem the very low Xmax and Qt ?

Yeah, no problems, the lowther the cabinet is designed for is pretty low Qts, and the xmax is a nonissue, I don't listen all that loud and bass excursions are controlled by the backhorn/acoustic labyrinth/thingamagig
