and as the guy who built them (the dual FF85K little boxes) - they weren't exciting enough to be memorable - actually after a few hundred pairs of different designs, it's probably not surprising that a few don't stand out

Yup, they're even more gorgeous in the flesh - but I can't take the credit for Bernie Foucher's craftsmanship - my personal favorite of the flock of these he made were probably the locust.

(sorry, couldn't resist)
Opening up an old post, but I have a pair of Enabled FF85wk's on the way. Recommended enclosure????

mike, I've used this driver in a few different applications - if you mean solo, without the aid of woofers, I'd list them in order of my personal preference for sonic performance

- FH Lite - best bass of this group
- microFonken SET (per the most recent several photos in above thread) *
- standard microFonken

* - look gorgeous in solid or a nice veneer, but Sasha royal pain in diaz build

(thanks, Tommy and Ray)

no doubt there are other recommendations to follow - I'm not sure if Scott ever penned anything like the V-Bomber or de Havilland series for this little guy.

Thanks Chris,
Is the microFonken SET online or do I need to purchase it?
Thanks for the input!.

Dave D should pipe in soon on that - I think they're part of a paid plan set?

If you have FF85wKeN from us (directly or indirectly — i couldn’t find your name in the database) then you are entitled to the paid planset.

Contact me.
