Has anyone tried the Fostex Fa on an open baffle setup? Don’t know about OB application, but I have recently heard good things about the en Fostex driver that has recently come out. I’ve read good things about the FA in O. Did you hear about it on the net?

Can you provide a link? Martin J King, the designer of the system identified in my last post, and here: He listed it on the same webpage, but has removed it. 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 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.
In ffostex opinion for the cost the performance is poor. I am now using a FEE in the Goldwood system and that sounds much better.
I haven’t tried them in an OB. The FA’s are so coherent from top to bottom in a vented 15L enclosure. The lower midrange is particularly rich, which makes the driver sound larger than it is. Overall sound is very smooth. Regretted selling the little boxes.

I have a pair of Fa’s in Metronome quad. They fostfx kinda pitiful on all the SS amps I have tried. MJK brought over a tube amp. You wouldn’t know it was the same driver! I don’t know why this should be, but the highs stink on SS amps. On tubes, they are wonderful.
I was about ready to dump the Fa’s until I experienced them on tubes. The result is that last year I bought my first tubes since the ‘s. But overall, I would not bother building any other speaker using the Fa.
I can’t see spending the money for them.
