Hello there,
I just want to ask anyone and everyone here if you could please point me out in the right direction. In your professional opinion, what would you believe to be the best full-range speaker project that would play electronic music world trance techno house music? If you have any thoughts at all on this I would really appreciate it. Years ago Dave enameled a pair of fostex 103s and put them in a Zigamahornet cabinet and still have them and love them, Thank you all

Paul

If the Fostex cover your music, then i’d recommend Mark Audio Alpair7.3 (or maybe A7p)

Paul - if you can spare the floorspace, I'd recommend the FH3 for A7.3

Despite my encouragement we are still the only ones in North America.

But i just sold out the latest batch so a new queue will form.

Any timing on the next batch? I'm not sure I can commit yet, but I've been thinking about it..

Turns out Chris made 6 in the batch which makes the above untrue. But i have just now sold the sixth one… 1st flat-pak going overseas (except for a couple where shipping was covered by the US Military).

Not sure when Chris is going to start the next batch.

Does FH3 need corner positioning? I've got one corner, and open space on one side.

If the FH3 has FE126 or similar corner loading is needed to maximize bass. With drivers like the A7x (those that also work in reflex enclosures) id corner loaded you will really need to damp down excessive bass, they work fine with just a near wall.

In your situation with different loading for each speaker you may need to damp the corner box more than the one without.

Ok, thanks. FE127e. I think I may need to look at other designs.
