Can someone advise me on what inductors to use? There is a bewildering array to choose from and they are not cheap!

First, air core or ferrite? Which sounds best?
Second, power handling. Inductors seem to be sold by the thickness of the wire used with no indication of what this means in terms of power handling. I have built a pair of speakers using Fostex FE126eN full range units and intened to be using a low power valve amp to drive them. I have calculated the values I need but what spec do I need to buy?

Jantzen, ERSE, air core and great bang for the buck. Get the largest diameter you can afford, as that matters more then **modern** design and material core fillings.
