Newbie wants to build single drive speakers.. (BD-Design)

by GC, Monday, February 14, 2005, 16:57 (4727 days ago)

Hi all,

I'm a newbie when it comes to speakers and hi-fi in general. Nevertheless I would like to build my own speakers. I thought a single drive would be good to start with, equiped with a fostex FE206E or a FE207E (good price value) But know the difficult part starts....

Should I make;

1) The singular speakers as descirbed on this site with the FE206E (with filter), or;
2) The singular speakers as descirbed on this site with the FE207E, or;
3) The back loaded horn type enclosure with the FE206E as recomended by Fostex (see www.fostex.com), or;
4) The double Bass reflex type enclosure with the FE207E as recomended by Fostex (see www.fostex.com)

I would like to hear your opinions and advice

Thanks,

Jacob

...then I would built the Singular with the FE207E for a good balanced and natural sound. If you're looking for a more "fun" sounding speaker being more dynamic and alive then I would not built the Fostex horn but the Solo designed/modified by Tony Gee.

The double reflex is an easy to built system and might do some things very well but it would not be my first choice. I never heard it though...

This would be my choise
At this moment i am playing with the Fostex FE 167 E in a ML TL
and they sound wonderfull.. with a simple BSC and
almost no stuffing

I hope a 8 in fullrange will give me a little more body in the bass

one important thing the Fostex need too burn in 300 -- 600 hours
and then they begin really to sing

For no more difficult 2 or 3 way systeem
Like to leave things simple

So less is more ...

Ok, it will almost be for sure a full range driver. Bert, how is de cluttering of high and low during busy music pieces in the Singular 207?

Hi Jacob,

cluttering of high and low during busy music pieces in the Singular 207?

You'll be surprised how well the drivers behave and remain transparent on normal listening levels. If you stress them by playing extremely loud then you'll loose the magic. Don't forget that the system (amplifier, source, etc.) are similar responsible for a proper reproduction of music.

Ciao,

Bert

Bert,

What is the reason you prefer the Solo design over the recommended design of Fostex for the FE206?

Hi Jacob,

of Fostex for the FE206?

Its just a feeling, liking the other one more while looking at both designs....
