And those FR drivers would be? I don’t know why this should be, but the highs stink on SS amps. In my opinion for the cost the performance is poor. I have now heard the FA in a couple of different systems and initially it sounds good but after listening for a while I have been disappointed each time. Logged Dracule1 Volunteer Posts: Martin J King, the designer of the system identified in my last post, and here: You wouldn’t know it was the same driver!
I contacted him recently and he stated “I took down the FA option for the Goldwood H frame design because in the end I was not happy with the performance of the FA. I really like the FA but it is an old design and FR drivers are getting better with each passing year. Logged planet10 Industry Participant Posts: The result is that last year I bought my first tubes since the ‘s. I’ve read good things about the FA in O. They sound kinda pitiful on all the SS amps I have tried.
Can you provide a link? I am now using a FEE in the Goldwood system and that sounds much better. I can’t see spending the money for them.
I was about ready to dump the Gostex until I experienced them on tubes. Logged roscoeiii Full Member Posts: He listed it on the same webpage, but has removed it. The lower midrange is particularly rich, which makes the driver sound larger than it is.
MJK brought over a tube amp. Overall sound is very smooth.
I’ve a couple sets in my living room now that i think are better than the FA I have a pair of Fa’s in Metronome quad. Fowtex tubes, they are wonderful.
Don’t know about OB application, but I have recently heard good things about the en Fostex driver that has recently come out. I haven’t tried them in an OB. But overall, I would not bother building any other speaker using the Fa.
JCS on 31 Aug Has anyone tried the Fostex Fa on an open baffle setup?
The FA’s are so coherent from top to bottom in a vented 15L enclosure.
