Ever since my Hammer Foxtex started singing, I have been having lots of fun. Haven’t done much on it, but swapping the only electrolytic in the crossover with a better cap yielded even better sound! Upgrading every component in the crossover doesn’t sound fostx to me. No, not the sound, but the idea. I mean, how many parts on earth do you have to keep on buying until you find what you like?
You see, the Hammer Dynamics main 12″ driver has a sensitivity of 97dB while this Audax is only 94dB. This fy17h the VERY relaxed treble. The Fostex, at I got mine from Madisound but ordering through them isn’t as easy as before. Previously, all it takes is a couple of e-mail messages and the goods will ft17j on your way, but nowadays, they requested me to fax a copy of my ID AND my credit card.
Reason being, too many credit card frauds. I don’t have to tell you this new procedure is a P-A-I-N. Furthermore, if the fax gets to “somewhere else”, I’d be more worried about being a victim of credit fraud than anything else! Hey, you idiots reading this, stop spoiling our reputation!
Right out of the box, they look good. So far, build quality of all Fostex drivers I have come across look really good. Every unit even has frequency response chart, specifications, mounting dimensions fft17h configuration example.

I was suprised to find it quite heavy, g 0. If you haven’t been on this planet lately, a search on Ebay will show you fostexx speaker drivers with alnico magnets command a stratospheric price over their non-alnico cousins. However, they are too big to be mounted on the current tweeter position. Those guys on the Super 12 Forum is right. So I did as they did, and mounted mine on top of the cabinet, angled at the listener, with some Blu-tack.
Will fiddle around until I find a position I like. I haven’t heard so much treble from my system!
I get too conscious of the treble! But it’s very clear, and very extended I don’t have to say this right?
Super 12 Forum guys recommend “padding” the tweeter with a 1 ohm series resistor and 65 ohm shunt resistor. Another e-mail on the Forum recommended a single 0. What do I have? I hear a wider, more open soundstage. Still can’t hear much depth, but I reckon it’s more of a “room” problem.
Instruments have more “air” around them. Finally cymbals and hi-hats have more “body”.

Vocals are impressive too. Other than the “air” factor, it also seems to have more “body” and “feel” to it.
I have to say that if anything, these tweeters are under-hyped. I haven’t heard much mention of how pretty they sound.

Noting that I hate sizzle or exaggerated treble. Err, wish to add another point. DAC in use now, is the non-oversampling variety, thus, there should be a Since this Fostex has output up till 50kHz, there should be Heard that some commercial mosquitoes repellant utilize a 40kHz fostdx tone to “shoo-shoo” mosquitoes away.
Seems that mosquitoes can’t stand this frequency probably some pets too.
