Has anyone tried the Fostex Fa on an open baffle setup?
In my opinion for the cost the performance is poor. I really like the FA but it is an old design and FR drivers are getting better with each passing year.

I haven’t tried them in an OB. Cookies help us provide you a better browsing experience.

Martin J King, the designer of the system identified in my last post, and here: I don’t know why this should be, but the highs stink on SS amps. JCS on 31 Aug And those FR drivers would be?
He listed it on the same webpage, but foshex removed it. Overall sound is very smooth. Regretted selling the little boxes. Has anyone tried the Fostex Fa on an open baffle setup?
