Default It's not easy being green -- just pictures

Note: this thread is the picture posts extracted from this active thread It's not easy being green (apologies to Kermit)


One of the nice things about the white Fostex cones is that they can be made almost any colour... here is a recent set i did for a client in NY.

She likes these better than her TB 1772 (both sonically & cosmetically). I expect the TB to land here soon for the same treatment.

Here is a robin's egg blue FE126. These are in the UK now... they are pre-EnABL.

Another shade of blue... pretreated (and matched) for the client to do their own EnABL

More to follow.

Here are a couple more examples.

This one is an experiment to see about blending 2 colours together to get a gradient... i didn't suceed but learned a lot and still ended up with a pretty set of drivers (we have just built a special set of mFonken to house these (for our Fostex archives)

A set of light blue with purple spots:

One more for tonight. A client had his DCA4 sent directly here. He wanted Maroon with yellow spots. I drove a maroon Jaguar for awhile. I used that as a colour reference. He loves them.

One of my favourite experiments, my personal FE126eN until they met an untimely end at this year's diyFEST

Click the image to open in full size.

The most popular colour scheme Natural with Brown modeled by an FE127eN

http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/attac...10-fe126en.jpg

And a variation on the second most popular Natural with Black, with a contrasting dustcap (experimental FE126En)
