The North American distributor for Fane, Solen.ca, has 4 12-250TC in stock. Get them while they are hot.

I did have a look at Solen but shipping from Canada/USA to Australia is ridiculously expensive. Purchasing from Europe, total cost (including drivers) was $200 AUD cheaper! Approximately half the difference was the additional shipping cost from North America.

Exactly mirrors my path, except that I am basicly using an oversized FAST/WAW setup now... Still, going from 4way setup to 2way setup, with more frequency extension, and more dynamics, this hobby can be a blast.

I have a pair of the Fane 12's in a sealed box and they sound good.
Maybe a little light on bottom end.
I put a 15 in a folded horn cabinet and liked that too.

Best supplier for Fane in UK is Blue Aran - The UK's no.1 Loudspeaker Component Stockist

Thanks for that Nigel.

What size of enclosure do you use for the 12”, and would you mind perhaps giving a subjective description of the sound, imaging, staging etc?

Cheers!

Matt.

I have a couple of dipoles with fane 15-300 TC, and I am very happy. For little money, you have two very efficient and well sounding transducers. High dynamics, if you like live sound, sound real as you hear it from real. If you like smooth sound, this is not a speaker for you. Excellent piano and air instruments. A little less female voices. To strengthen the bass I also put eminence 15 alpha woofer up to 200hz.I use them with conrad johnson ev2000 hybrid power amp. Pre valve ev 20. C.J. I live happy now.

I have played both Fane 12" and 15" on wide 30" X 50" baffles assisted by 15" bass woofers, crossed at 120Hz.

The 12" has better HF extension than 15" but 15" has better off axis response particularly on HF. However I liked mid of 12" much more than 15". I enjoyed 12" for over an year and 15" played for a couple of months. May be not enough time for 15" to break in well.

Both drivers were driven by SE tube amps. Both sounded fabulous. Incredible bang for buck.

I even toyed with an idea of placing a phase plug on the 12". The experiment remained unfulfilled as I sold both to a friend. (Big stupid mistake, had two pairs of 12" and one of 15").

He installed them in Telefunken Open Baffle and they amaze him every single day !
