Default Fostex and Nirvana Single Drivers for Sale

Hello there. I was going to list the following drivers on Ebay but I thought I would give you guys a crack at these.

3 - FE168 Sigma Drivers - these are the version before the current FE168EZ. Check out the following link for more information - Asking OBO$130.00

http://www.fostexinternational.com/d...fe168sigma.pdf

I can also provide you with the design I used - the BS168 base reflex -

2 - FE103 - These are quite old 3" drivers and in good condition considering their age. The cones require re gluing and this is a basic repair that can be done with white glue or modge podge. You can find allot of information on these drivers and designs at:

http://www.planet10-hifi.com/index.html
http://www.frugal-horn.com/

Asking $80.00 OBO

2 - Nirvana 8's. These great sounding 8" drivers sound the best of all the single drivers I have heard. Huge magnets and great value! Check out the following link for more information.

Asking $70.00 obo

2 - Fostex FE166E - http://www.fostexinternational.com/d...E-Series.shtml

Another well know driver from fostex. Asking $70.00 obo

All drivers are in great condition and broken in. Please contact me if you would like pictures. I will accept payment from paypal only. My email address is bezzlebubba99@yahoo.ca.

Kind Regards,

Default Speaks for sale

I emailed you...

I guess the sigmas are spoken for.

I am interested in the Audio Nirvanas and the Fostex FE166E's.

Unless the Sigmas are still available.. Then I want those too. Package deal?
Prices in US$? Or CA$
Cheers,
Erik

I used to live about an hour South of you during my junior and high school years. I miss the big sky and the rolling plains.

Default Drivers still Available for Offers

The speakers are still available. Please make an offer. The prices I quoted are US dollars and shipping would be extra.

I made a mistake on the pricing of the FE168 Sigmas. It should have read $195 for three or $65 each. A package deal would work well.

Kind Regards,



Doug Woodliffe

Default Big Sky but Snow and Cold!

Yes the big sky is nice but we pay the price - cold and snow! I would rather live a few hundred miles to the south where they get big sky and better weather. It is just starting to warm up now!

Where do you live?

Cheers,


Doug

I live in Eugene, Oregon. Rain, rain, rain. Damp. Pollen, hayfever.

It is beautiful though. Could you tell me what version of the Audio Nirvana 8's you have?

I am very interested in two of the Sigmas and the AN 8's. How did you like the Sigmas?

Erik

Default Driver Details

The drivers are the Audio Nirvana 8's. The Fostex drivers are very clear and detailed and sound great with well produced music. I listened to the FE168's on Sunday and really miss the sound. However, I have already committed to a couple of other projects and can't afford to keep all the drivers. I still have an old pair of Fostex OEM drivers and the FE103's (if they do not sell) for future experimentation. I like rock and heavy stuff now and again and decided to make some speakers with a more balanced sound.

I think that the Nirvanas' sound very good. I used a base reflex design and tamed the sound by stuffing the box. Other people have tamed them with a notch filter. All single drivers suffer from ragged response in the upper middle frequencies. However, some people really enjoy the sound. I may set up a third listening room at some point and play only well recorded material on single drivers. I have enough amplifiers and stuff around to do that.

Cheers,

Doug

Default Not the Super 8's

The drivers are the regular 8's not the Super 8's.
