WTD. Full range drivers

Recommended Posts

 I have an itch to build some large horn speakers,  so looking for a pair of drivers, e.g. Lowther, Tang band or Fostex ?

I’ve got a pair of Fostex FE166En 160mm 8 Ohm Full Range drivers.

They have been used for about 300 hours - just taken them out some spec boxes.

Baskets have been dampened and the back magnet plate has some closeD cell foam applied to absorb internal reflections. Photo’s incoming.

£95 for the pair posted in original boxes

looks like a good place to start, would you recommend a massive pipe type horn or more regular type, construction is no problem for me .

NEVER had full range in all my years of hi fi

Fostex own recommended boxes:

But if you research the drivers online there are plenty other ideas and suggestions. I’m sure many on the forum will pass comment too.

I have a pair of AER MD3B drivers, these are lowther based but a lot better.

These are fairly new and just run in. selling due to upgrade to their newer version BD4.
