I sent Jeff Poth a pair of FF85KeN (and a set of 1197 phase plugs). He has used them in an MJK style OB with a vintage JBL woofer. He had on hand a stock set for comparison.

This one will also be of interest to BOFU users -- he illustrates a set of modifications

Default dude, where's the smoke :) ?

What no smoke arising from the OB? As soon as I get a chance to listen to the dMar-Kens or whatever it is we built here, the CHRs are going into the OBs on the Spirits to compare to the Jordans.

nice little write up and great to see P9+1 stuff getting a little more exposure..

I've seen far uglier speakers, so they aren't that bad looking.

The white paint doesn't help.

No, it sure doesn't. It's actually appliance epoxy, which is extremely strong, and easy to clean. Particularly useful when the OB sits on the floor.....

But I've been meaning to fabricate a grille wrap. They're not in use at the moment, however, so a grille wrap will wait until they are again.
