It sure looks like ESS is selling some tweeter by them selfs via e-bay. I have had two pairs of the older versions of the AMT tweeters and compared them to the new ones. The new ones are defenitly better. The older ones I have purchased via e-bay sounded a bit crappy actually. I have replaced the diaphragms of 1 pair wich made them better but still not as good as the new ones. Still when I compare the new AMT's with a pair of Raven R2's then the AMT's have more guts but the Ravens sound much much more detailed in the top-end. I have gave up on the AMT's but still $300,- for a new pair is a bargain, just buy them.

Dave,

Your phase plugs for the FE166/167, they'll work with my FE164's, right? Isn't it basically just an earlier version?

Tony,

Sorry for not getting back to you yet on this. I do suspect that the 166/167 plugs will work on the 164. The voice coil only needs to be the same size, and as Fostex seems pretty consistent i would strongly suspect they are.

Dave,

Can you supply phase plugs for Fostex FE 204?

I would be interested in some of those that are pictured on the first site of this thread.

It should be the same as for FE 206E I suppose. I don't know about the diameter of those for FE 206E, but for FE 204 they should be about 32,5-33mm diameter. probably more like 33mm.

The 1st batch of production 206/207 plugs are enroute to me right now. These should fit the 204.

Tim Forman did the beta tests, and he did some actual measurements. (production in red, stock in blue)
