That is just a darn shame!

Oh, well, it IS/WAS worth it!

By the way, finally got around to trying your Mod Podge and Ideal Duct Seal mods on the 8" woofer of the B&O Beovox S40.

Be warned! Postage is about $100.
Thanks!

I have been corresponding with Dave...and yes, it's about $130.00! He is a very patient man

Dave and Chris are both fine examples of the best this hobby has to offer.

I just finished with the Damar and Mod Podge stage on a pair of 126 drivers. Just this alone smoothed them out a bit. Look forward to starting the dot patterns.

Once these are broken in and this is applied it really does transform the drivers. I do plan to do the Alpair 7 drivers when they are fully broken in.

Just the dot pattern on the Alpairs please. Any more than that will be too much.

EdbSchiller's "bass augmented" (or a DIY alternative could be added later on). Any thoughts on a driver? I have a back wall but the corners are 3 feet away from each speaker. Listening position is 7 feet. Mostly classical, jazz, maybe antique rock.
Please don't worry about efficiency. The Alpair 7 is perfect for cello reproduction! It is by far the best driver in that instance. The efficiency is not at all a problem a good valve amplifier of 8 watts will be fine or even a 45 watt per channel silicon amp will be perfect. If you don't believe me check out Home Page and look up Valentini, it is a special build of the FHMK3 designed solely with reproducing the Cello in mind!

Hi, I'm interested in the FH 3 with Fostex FE126En drivers.

Only real question I have is; how suitable are the FH 3 for a small room [2.9m(L) x 3m(W) x 2.4m (H)] and a nearfield listening position [1 - 1.3m]? Prepared to do some room treatment & EQ tweaks if needed.

Thanks in advance...

Paul

1-1.3m might well be somewhat close to get the bass from the horn to integrate with the utput from the front.

Contacted Toppsy regarding kits, was recommended MarkAudio drivers above the Fostex ones...

Dependent upon how far these can be pushed into the corners [physically & critical placement], I have enough floor space to get a listening position of 2m, measured from the drivers.
