Finished Placed in the my listening environment I noticed some lack of the lows so I started to tune the speaker. My original stuffing was 112 g per speaker (about 3,95 oz), now I have 83 g (2,93 oz) and it is much better, but I still have to play with it. But it's fun
On top are the external xo's.

Sorry for writing that much about the speaker, but the sound is simply gorgeous I have listened to many expensive speaker but this speaker is really outstanding. If somebody would tell me they cost 8000 euros, I would believe it. That's it
Forgot to mention, in the cone I ended up with 8 g stuffing (about 0,28 oz).

Fantastic Istvan!!
Your wall of audio gear is quite a nice sight
If you feel the need for more bass, reduce the amount of stuffing behind and over the top turn of the RS225. That section looked a bit over packed with stuffing from your picture.
Enjoy your fresh set of FAST TLís!!

Many thanks Vunce I am really excited.
Yes, this is exactly the area where I have reduced the stuffing
And now it's time for your TL's

Hopefully this batch of newly built TLís by you, Meanie and X will nudge me enough to finally build mine

So you are tuning your speakers while watching an episode of Star Trek: TNG? Cool!

Nice build Istvan. How they compare vs Frugal horns? Probably more bass but what about mids and highs?

Thank you, Cindra!
The FH MkIII's are in my opinion special speaker for not too big soundmasses and they require special placement. In my case, they are a bit harsh in the higher midrange. I use the MA A7MS, maybe it would be better (for me) to use a paper cone and I plan to do so.
The TL's are just great, they easily outperform many many high-price commercial speaker. The mids are very open, clear, smooth and detailed, live-like, the stage is wide and deep and high.
