Here are some full range speakers that are new to the market. Their
specs are very similar to the Fostex FE series drivers like I used in
the Voigt pipes. I started a thread about them on the AudioRoundtable
forum and everyone questioned their suitability for ported enclosures,
which is what the Audio Nirvana folks recommend. But I have always
been attracted to things different, so I ordered a pair of the 8"
drivers along with plans for the 2.5 cu ft double port enclosure. I
exchenged a few emails with David Dicks of AN, and he told me he tunes
for a rich midbass rather than maximum bass extension. He does this
because in A/B listening tests with customers they always choose the
warmth over the max extension. We'll see. AN also sells Lowther,
Fostex, and a few other brands along with enclosures and enclosure
plans. So many speakers, so little time.
