The extremely large magnet of the driver is also covered with bitumanized heavy aluminium foil to reduce sound reflections from the back of the box.

206wn by starting with a speaker toe-in of about degrees and adjust for best results. Two strands of wire wrap wire fine 30 AWG silver plated copper wire is use for both positive and negative of the speakers.

Once more I went back over each surface three or more times using a semi-dry roller. Not quite black more 2006en a dark charcoal. The circuit is simple, just one inductor and one resistor in parallel with each other and in series with the speaker. The back loaded horn speakers are large and according to my wife ugly speakers. The bottom chamber of the speakers remains empty. Other advantages of the double bass-reflex speaker compared to a conventional bass-reflex system are a reduction of the cone excursion around F 3 and a corresponding reduction distortion.

The fill material is used to dampen the rear wave from the driver and minimize standing waves and reflections within the speaker enclosure. Now many may find that the BSC circuit can reduce or suppress the dynamics and for that reason I don’t really like to use them. To evaluate I listened to the speakers with and without the BSC circuit, with and without the grill covers and all possible combinations in between.

For those who will ask, the impedance equalization circuit Zobel network for the Fostex FEEn driver shown Figure 3 fostec be used.


Fostex FE206En in Double Bass-Reflex Speaker Enclosure

Anyone who has tried a DIY audio project knows that you generally need to know more than how to just read a schematic and use a soldering iron. I don’t have a microphone setup but using the Stereophile test CD, bass starts to roll off very slowly from about hz until you reach about 50Hz where there is a definite rise and a there is an even bigger rise at 40Hz. I have had a pair of Fostex single driver back-loaded horns for a few years now.

See the Fostex FEEn in dual chamber box double bass reflex thread for more information or to ask any questions. That was the finished I had envisaged, dull and heavily stippled. Putting your ear to the port with a 40Hz tone you can hear air rushing in 260en out.

While the rise at 40Hz does not make itself present in general music listening, it does add drama when listening to movies which is the ofstex role these speakers are intended to fill. The double bass-reflex DBR speaker system is a variation of the standard bass-reflex BR enclosure that is intended to achieve further extension of the bass response.

After two hours of drying time I applied the top coat to the speaker boxes. You can use the online calculator to determine the value of choke and resistor required based fostexx the width of the speaker baffle and impedance of the speaker. Luckily when the double bass-reflex speaker boxes arrived they had already been sanded down and that meant I only had to finish the surface preparation with a pass of fine sand paper before applying a coat of primer.

The advantage is that there is no crossover distortion or suppression of the dynamics which occurs with almost all passive crossover circuits. The Fostex FEEn double bass reflex speakers sound excellent.

The amount of speaker toe-in will vary dependent 026en the listening room, amplifier and personal preference. Low frequency response from around Hz is gently damped with a controlled peak at Hz. I find that the mid-range richness is why these drivers can sound good with acoustic instruments and especially vocal. The top chamber of the double bass-reflex speaker boxes is lined but not stuffed with Dacron poly fill.


But if you find just the right volume the speakers can really sing.

Where these drivers can sound overly forward too hot in the mid-range this adjusts that forwardness leaving the bass and treble better balanced. I have added bituminous aluminium foil to dampen the driver frame. Those who know me know that I love my flea power single-ended SE valve amplifiers. The double 206eh speaker enclosure plan is from the datasheet that was included with the Fostex FEEn driver. Kit, my son, had the FEEn double bass-reflex speakers in the corner of the room on a wood floor.

With so little available power it is easy to understand why high-sensitivity loudspeakers are required. This process worked out very well. Created 17 September So much so that I had to have a pair for myself. There are many tweaks and modifications that can be done to improve the drivers. 206een family friend had built me the back-loaded horn speaker cabinets and at the same time a pair double bass-reflex boxes also for the Fostex FEEn driver. The photos below show the Fostex FEEn fullrange speaker drivers.

To achieve this I used a cheap paint-roller and after going once around the box with a white undercoating paint, I went around three more times with a semi-dry roller to fostsx tease-up that stipple finish.

Gold plated binding posts are used to connect the speakers at the back.

But when it comes to flea power amps they can make “boogie” real loud.
