Brand new never used. Doubt I will ever have time to use these. Located in San Jose California
$200 for the pair.

If you really need these specific drivers, yes! I bought them from oaktsh. They are wonderful drivers, very different from the FE207E and FE206E. I have since moved down to 4.5" drivers because my room is small. Are you building the Replikon or Basszilla or something?

Also, please note these are the original FE208-Sigmas, with the accordion surround (a.k.a. the W-shaped surround) and whizzer, and cream-colored cone -- not the FE208E-Sigmas (which need a tweeter). I'm not dying to sell them but if you need them, I will accomodate a DIY'er on a mission. :)

Thanks for your responses, openness and honesty. :)

I'm not on a mission but I am researching. Right now my speakers don't cut it but I don't have a lot of money to spend. I'm looking at various speaker options such as fullrange drivers, open baffle speakers, dipole, etc. The fosteks caught my eye and thought I'd ask. Right now I'm leaning towards some smaller full-range drivers, such as CSS FR125 transmission lines or something like that.

I'm also building an integrated amp based on the MyRef by Mauro w/ a Nelson Pass B1 passive section. :xeye: :cool:

Hi marc, there are lots of options out there. The only reason to use the FE208-Sigma would be to build one of the few cabs that really requires it (hello from Captain Obvious).

A smaller TL sounds like a good way to go! I like the Fostex FE127E at the moment but you could hardly go wrong with the CSS FR125. I wish you good luck and I hope you will post pics over in the Loudspeakers > Fullrange area. I'd love to see what you build. :)

I'll definitely post pics of the amp, speakers, not matter what I decide to build. I recently modded my Polk R30's as it was expedient and cheap but that only threw fuel on the fire to build a pair of speakers. :rolleyes: ;)

If Marc Brown has decided that he doesn't want the FE208Sigmas and you are still willing to sell them, please email me (I can't email you as I am a new member), I have been looking for a pair.

Thank you.

Right now I'm not in the position to purchase the Fostex (pair being Fostei?) -- due to monetary and time (too many projects) consraints. :xeye: :)

Probably would be Fosteces, but latin plurals only apply to words originally taken from latin and I doubt Fostex is, being Japanese
