Best SSE speakers
Starting my SSE build and am looking for Ideas on DIY speakers to work with this amp.I have built planet10 Foukens, Bob Brines QWTL, I would like to stay under 500 on driver prices full range,mtm, or just about anything not to big This has to go into a normal living room
Right now, my SSE is driving Fostex FE166E's as the top end of my open baffle speakers, with an active xover and a second amp driving the woofers.
$500 would buy a pair of Betsy's (the non-K OB version), a pair of Goldwood GW-1858 woofers, a MiniDSP crossover and a decent sized class D amp to run the woofers. You can have a lot of fun with a rig like that (though fitting them into you room might be problematic...).
If you tend towards rock'n'roll, you could even think about an Econowave/ SEOS type 2-way, with a high sensitivity 'pro' type woofer and a waveguide-loaded compression tweeter.
Lots of choices out there!
I built the Fostex BK-12m Folded Horn Kit from madisound (http://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com...horn-kit-pair/) for the SSE and have been very happy with it. It uses the fostex FE126En. I think the design is from Planet 10. I mostly listen to Jazz and Folk, which they handle very very well. Heavy Metal would be pushing it, but 70's hard rock Who, Zeppelin, etc sound pretty good. At first they were a little bright and forward for me, but between wear in and a little BSC, they have really come into form.
