The 4KHz peak of the uncorrected driver is easily taken care off and it’s pretty inoffensive. See you there, Jay. It has 96dB sensitivity and if you bring in a good tweeter, maybe a nice ribbon above 5K, I think you’ll really have something. Hi Jay Sounds like my experience. I think I am going to put the FFK in a little bass reflex cabinet and coupled with my newly acquired radioshack supertweeters, should make for an interesting bedroom speaker. I got the FEE in the mail late in the week.

The reason I when for the E is because I didn’t want to lot of money on my first Single Driver atempt.
The difference is quite startling. This one, however, needs some kind of tweeter and while I think the real maximum excursion is bigger than the spec, I would treat it gently with the “Jurassic Park” sound track. Anyway, but after fine tuning with stuffing inside and around the whizzer cone and placement the result is stunning and no kidding here.
But in my TQWT they sound excellent. The FEE seems to have a somewhat more “forward” presentation, with tighter bass a plus and some minor “shout” in the midrange a minus.
I’ve never seen a real curve of the LE 8 and I don’t remember that much about their top end. The 4KHz peak of the uncorrected driver is easily taken care off and it’s pretty inoffensive. In any case, the FFK has 94dB sensitivity, works well as a full-range driver, betters its bigger brother in the treble but of course is not as good fowtex the bass.

Posted by zobsky yahoo. The FE series uses ‘whizzer’ cones to good effect and the FF series uses an aluminum center. See you there, Jay. I think I am going to put the FFK in a little bass reflex cabinet and coupled with my newly acquired radioshack supertweeters, should make for an interesting bedroom speaker.
As pointed out before, it fd165k that the fostxe drivers make the most out of a current source and here we don’t see any particular advantage. They work well in my 8.

I have not tried or heard the E or E sigma. They are amazing drivers for the money.
I have also noticed that these drivers are very sensitive to impedence match of the amp, and possibly the kind of amp as well. This is a very nice driver but I have to vostex that a ribbon tweeter or something similar would put the cherry on top. The ‘wooly’ bass response may fostrx due to overly damping the horn throat, although too little may result in a midrange peak.
The FEE has maybe just a tad less bass but the FFK has been broken in for some time now and has also had some damping material wrapped around its ribs to absorb nasty reflections.
Hi Jay Sounds like my experience. Taken alone, it rolls off a bit much for my taste. Well, not the same fostx what you have in mind.
But very thing turn out great! The other horn cabinet was running my FFK which has been broken in for a month, I like the Jordan so much I stuck it in here anyway as a fine counter example.
WANTED: Fostex FFk full range drivers
They do have a tendancy to ‘shout’ if not properly implimented. I think they are a bit too big for the driver, especially after reading the article about TL and pipe speaker vostex August 03 Audio xpress. I made all my reservations this weekend. Hope this helps, Marco. Audio Asylum Thread Printer Get a view of an entire thread on one page.
I notice that Fostex seems to have three approaches for getting full-range performance in the treble. Magnetically shielded, they also make great computer speakers.
I popped one of them in one of my cabs to do an A-B. Anyway, if you looking for a cheap way to get in to single driver than Fostex is the best way ff615k go. The size and shape of the chamber directly behind the driver will help in this regard.
