I want it, but don't know if I need another project ;)
Small, excellent sound, use almost anywhere. Kicks butt on the desktop.
Randy, the link in your signature line appears to be broken?
I'm not up for a project right now, but could really use a pair of smallish bookshelf speakers for my office. I'm good with Fostex, but perhaps am even more so intrigued this time for Alpair drivers. What would you suggest?
PS the twin Fonken project you provided the drivers and plans for is delayed indefinitely by nagging wrist issues. I wish they had been ready for Burning Amp. Maybe next year...
The original uFonken was inspired by Terry Crabbe’s comment about designing something as small as comercial example he had on hand.
We already had mSize boxes. I went thru the Fostex line and chose the FF85k because an optimum miniOnken was only 2 litre internal. So we ordered a pair to try out. First thing we put it into an OB and listened to it like that. We were worried about how we could possibly sell treated pais for $160 USD. We were soon not so worried… they had a top up to what some equally priced domes did. The original FF85k uFonken was outstanding.
Then Fostex discontinued them. With no word of replacement. We tried Fountek FR88ex to replace it. It was not as good, and then it doubled in price when neo skyrocketed.
Maybe a year after the FF85k was discontinued, Fostex brought out the FFxx5wk line. Generlly much easier to box than the earlier line (the larger of which mimiced the FExx6e line). The FF85 lost its fancy/brilliant surround design which had us worried at 1st. But it turned out that placed in the original uFonken — with very minor vent change) was a step up almost everywhere. And it was actually optimum in a 2.5 litre box — this led to the uFonkenSET (Special Edition Trapezoid). It is one of the speaker designs i am most proud of. The extra volume extended the bottom ~10 Hz.
But the trapezoids are a bitch to make*… all those angles, and not enuff room for clamps. So the rectangular, fairly easy to build uFonkenPlus. Also versions with sloped baffles to better aim them when sitting on the desk.
And wooferStands for all 3 to turn them into 1st class WAWs. note: the pictured is one of the sets of speakers for sale.
*(but with a large enuff 3D printer…)
And it turned out that the same boxes — with tweaked tuning — were perfect for the then new Alpair 5.2. And it looks like the Faital Pro 3F22 (i still have to order some, i have the boxes). So all the 2.5 litre boxes exist as well for the A5.2.
Direct comparisons have been inconclusive but i have the feeling that the Alpair is a bit smoother. It also has a slight (2-3Hz) in the bass. We really like it.
The microSize boxes are really quite small (ie our stands have a platform for the speaker that ends up sticking out). With a 24” iMac.
Many can live with a bigger box, and the wide range of milliSize boxes gives lots of choice. My personal favorite is the Alpair 6.2p. It is stil fairly small. Perhaps Jeff could post a picture of his mMar-Ken6.2PeN?
