The little white spots are where I got excited opening them and...no actually, they come from the factory that way :) Where the tinsel leads connect with the cone on the undersides and go down to the coil.

Fostex :)

Ding ding :p:

This weekend I'm making open baffles for them, just to try them out/burn them in...their permanent home will be a pair of 6' tall upfiring horns :)

A Qts of .26 and an Xmax of 1.6mm doesn't hurt ;)

so... you're saying, that because they have such low x-max, and therefore wont really do much in a ported, or sealed enclosure, that they are meant for horns? hmm...

Woah, trippy design.I'd probably try to eat them, or at least lick em'.......because they sure as fawk look eatable lol.Except the basket and motor of course.

Awesome, I've been intrigued by those "full range" type Fostex drivers but have never been able to listen. I've eyed that one for a while wanting to do something with it but other projects have been holding priority :)

They won't do anything sealed. I've heard of people running them in ported boxes, but you won't get decent bass out of them unless they're horn loaded or put in a large transmission line.

We have a show coming up at Shelor's in Christiansburg...I don't live too far from there, you're welcome to have a listen to 'em on the monoblocks, and hopefully the VPI 'table if it's finished :up2somet:

so ****, I did a lot of research on the full range horns. Almost built a frugal horn but then decided that I didn't have the money cause college rapes me up the ***
