Default FS - Frugalhorn Mk3 flatpak w/Fostex drivers

SOLD - For Sale: Frugalhorn Mk3 flatpack kit with removable baffles and Fostex FE126eN^2 drivers (natural cones w/copper treatment).

Still in original packing - never opened. Shipped in May, but health issues make it unlikely I will ever build the speaks. Someone should enjoy them.

Mk3 F-horn kit: $260
FE126eN^2 (no basket stiffening): $198
Removable baffle for driver swaps: $40

My out of pocket $498 plus shipping.

If I can get most of my out of pocket back I will pay UPS shipping to the lower 48 states. PM if interested - thanks!

Pete

Peter's drivers are done in Natural with Copper Spots. They escaped from here before i got pictures.

The matching data for the drivers attached" Note the close efficiency match.

Current flat-paks are $275 so there is a $15 savings right there.

Additional baffles so that other drivers can be tried are $25/pr. Or make your own. Held in place with 4 M4 bolts.

Pete,
Any luck selling ? If I lived closer to you I would build them for you so you could at least enjoy them. I have no need or room but if no one else buys them I may eventually buy them and build them for someone else. Keep me posted if no one else shows interest and you still want them to go.

Bill

Okey-dokey, these speaks aren't doing anyone any good sitting in the box.

The first $350 + shipping to the lower 48 takes them.

Thanks,

Pete

Pete, I hope you sell them.

Can anybody point me to something where I can start to learn about this sort of stuff? I take it this is all about building good sounding, highly efficient speakers that will work well with low power SE amps.
Thanks,
Jim

Hey Jim,

Low wattage amps (tubed or SS, SE or PP) can sound remarkably good due to their simplicity and moderate operating envelope. For a good overview of the philosophy, I'd start here:

FIRST WATT

And then go here:

Nutshell High Fidelity

If you think of the amp & speaker as a total system then it begins to make sense. Efficient speaks are simply the best way to take advantage of the first watt of power while retaining adequate dynamics, clarity, etc.

It's analogous to the Lotus vs Aston approach to high performance autos.

Pete
