Sorry about the bump!

Found it in another Fane datasheet, it says: "Half space response measured in a 965 Litre sealed box. Blue Line = fundamental 45 off-axis."

Example:
https://www.fane-international.com/d...2BDS040714.pdf

I will assume they use the same methods of measurement to all drivers. It seems they write this in all the Pro series units, for some reason they skip that sentence in many of the sovereign data sheets?

Just eq it and sit on axis.

I've heard 8's that seem flat using a 30 degree averaged plot, looks good.
On axis was off, and so was on axis.

Like my 12" fane, sit a little off axis and eq it to how you want it to sound.


Mother's calling..........

Yes indeed!
I was thinking this driver would be a perfect match for a super budget setup, if you build my simulation with reasonably braced 15mm OSB, get some rockwool leftovers and a bit of felt from an construction site, power it with a TDA7297, use your smartphone as a source and also just do simple "pad down" eq'ing you have a insanely cheap setup that is flat from 40hz up at 95db/2,83v!

I am very excited about this driver.

I dont liked the low VC Re 5.2 ohms.
Though the blue line 10 dB depression at 1500Hz is very suited to Hi-Fi music in a home room, it will sound as a smooth midrange.
Any info on price?

Wow... I thought I had the same driver, at first glance. But nope, there are little differences.

This one is made in Taiwan. Not exactly the same, but quite similar in some ways.

I am using it in OB, as the low end woofer. I tried it as a fullrange, but it drops way too fast around 9kHz. The supplied FR is a little enthusiastic showing more output higher up... in reality, it doesn't go that high.

New 15" full range- FANE
I think this Fane would play "ok" in a Karlson K15. A bit "ripe" on the low end so the lowpass gap and vent area might be reduced until transients sound decent. I've run the higher Q EV SP15B form the 1950's in K15 and it was enjoyable. A helper tweeter might be added on a bracket.

If it's close to their similar 12", it's pretty full !

I keep hearing good things about the 12", but I have not heard it myself (not that my ears are worth much these days).

Big drivers are fun, And the Fane 12" and now also 15" is very interesting in combination with some extra 2x12" or maybe 2x15" for low freq oomph. But I am still evaluating options for my next build and it is very hard to ignore the Seas FA22RCZ possibly in combination with the A26RE4, the data is just too good. Though the sensitivity is not comparable to the fane, the FA22RCZ can play flat to 30hz completely alone in a 144 liter enclosure. A possibillity is making a sort of WFW setup with the FA22RCZ with 2 x A26RE4, but the same is also possible with the Fane 15" sandwiched between two other 15"s, the total cost of parts will probably be about the same after taxes, import and shipping is calculated. There will be a difference in material cost also so it's a tough choice.

New 15" full range- FANE
the 12 is quite good - had it in a slit vent Karlson 12 with slits damped - no low bass, no boom, no midrange "artifacts" - -upper treble "papery" (and beaming as expected) I also had it in the Karlsonator 12 where it played pretty deep and strong. - I should have experimented with damping to see how flat I could get it as the Karlsonaotor only had fluffed polyfil in its stub and one piece of bonded Dacron on the floor of the cabinet. If would be nice if Fane made a stronger motor version of the 12.

the Fane 15 might be fun open baffle with two Goldwood GW1858 - that would get it to 32Hz - (Goldwood might be a bit "fat" sounding)

I have 2 12's in a sealed cabinet and they sound very good.
Bass is a little lacking though.
