FS: Pair Hemp Acoustics FR8.1 NIB
Pair of brand new, in original boxes Hemp Acoustics FR8, bought them for a project and lost interest. Sat in the boxed for almost four years, need the space. The current price is $128 / piece (at, I'm asking
$130 for the pair plus shipping (probably less than $20 continental USA).
Full range, highly regarded, many designs on the web using this driver.

Thank you, Alex

What is the difference between these FR8.1 and the more common FR8C ?

I think these were "pre" version of the how much I don't know, and can't tell you exactly the differences between the two versions.
The manufacturer date code on mine is 02/08/07 and I'm attaching a pdf with the spec I found on the web.

thanks, alex

I have those drivers in the Metronome cabinet that was designed for them. There's a picture of them at The Metronome. Highly recommended. They can use a little BSC, I have a 1 mH coil paralleled with a resistor of which I can't remember the value. Very nice with tubes, but right now they are in my bedroom hooked to an old Yamaha receiver and a Squeezebox and they sound good there too.

Also sound very nice in a TL cabinet (Planet-10 design).

Isn't planet 10's design for the fr8c? I believe they are different enough that it matters.
