I'm sitting on a bunch of drivers that I plan to test soon.

In the photo:

Fostex FE126E and FE206E Fullrange Drivers.
Fostex FT96H Super Tweeters
Fostex L-Pads
CSS FR125SR Fullrange Drivers
Mach5Audio 12" Subwoofer
300W Bash Plate Amp

So far I have only tested the CSS FR125SR and sadly, they are very unmatched. Poor QA/QC I guess. They even got the label wrong. It says CSS FR125S but they are actually CSS FR125SR. I won them in a contest so no worries. I guess I could make two center channels with them.

I'll measure T/S parameters and post them soon.

I have to get a sub built before winter sets in. Then I want to try the Fostex FE206 in a double bass reflex enclosure.

Cheers

Maybe you should get a Class A built before winter sets in. Its the only time a Class A can be efficient AND the cold is a good excuse.

An L-Pad is a variable rheostat (resistor) that you use to adjust a level of a speaker (typically a tweeter). This way you can adjust the level to your taste rather than using a fixed resistor.
