Amplification with a FE206e Driver (Singular)

by rezurs @, Monday, October 29, 2007, 10:50 (3738 days ago)

Dear Forum Members

I use this opportunity to say hello to you all.

As I am relatively new to the "guild" of loudspeaker builders, I'd like to ask you about some tips for the singular speaker (I completed some projects before though, so I got my basics).

Now I'm building a Singular (enclousure is completed) with a Fostex FE206e. I intend to drive it with my Single-Ended 6W RMS Integrated.
Here now my questions:

Is the amp actually potent enough to drive such a configuration?

And/Or what choice of driver would be suitable for that kind of amp?

What kind of amp do you use to decently enpower a Fostex FE206e?

And finally what kind of crossover would make sense?


I am very grateful for any kind of advice.

Hi
Fostex would be good match for 6W SE amp.
I have 206E in accousta horn. My 2W 6GW8 SET amp drive them beautifully. My room is small tough.

Hello!!!

Thank you for your prompt reply! I'm pleased to hear that my "beast" could do the job well.

Now, further questions concern a correction network, do you use one in your horn?

Have a nice day!

No correction network, straight from the amp.
Bass depend on the recording. With some record/CD its more than enough. When theres lack of bass in the recording, I augmented a little with REL Stampede.

Dear Rezurs,

your horn?

The Singular has a built-in "correction" network as the drivers are directional. Just toe them a bit out and they sound less bright. For bass try to move them a bit around for best performance and if there is not enough bass then you could add a small subwoofer to tune in some "warmth".

Let the drivers play for a while first though, they will give more bass and sound less bright when they start to break-in.

I have used FE207E in Singulars with 6w amps. They are loud enough, but not rocking the house loud.
If you wish to add a little more bass use a single pair of wires stripped from a cat5 cable as your speaker cable <Horror!>
Untwist them and separate them by sticking them in between 2 pieces of masking tape.
No, I'm not joking.
It's too cheap not to try.
