    I wonder why so many single driver guys putz around with screechy Fostexes instead of using LE-8s or 755s. Cost? Ignorance? Herd mentality?

    The best sounding Fostex IMO was the FX-200 which looked VERY LE-8ish. No longer made, go figure.

    this is the costing problems

    because single driver no need crossover device!


    3way 4 way and 6 way are good but money ($$$$$$)

    Hello Tom,

    I'm not a SIngle driver guy- but I know plenty of them from the Lowther Club in Melbourne. In Australia, the LE8 seems to be difficult to find. Also some of the other full range drivers have higher sensitivities which is preferred by the SET/Low power crowd. To me the LE8 would be better although not as high in efficency, but better LF extension and that JBL punch. As an aside- I gave one of my single driver (Lowther addicted) friends a listen to an unbaffled LE5-2 with 200Hz high pass- he liked it. Maybe an extended 2 way experiment one day.

    For anyone who knows- I would be interested to know if the Dual COne (whizzer) equipped LE8 are genuine JBL. I have never seen any of these in JBL spec sheets, but I have seen some on eBay.

    Hello zzzz Kendall,

    Congrats on your project- it shows a nice addiction to construction quality. Can you tell us the cabinet wall thickness?

    yes !

    This is very good driver

    but just how to make the good enclosure and
    the low frequency down to 39Hz at (1 watt at 1 meter 92dB SPL)
    and (10 watt at 1 meter 102dB SPL) linear scale

    my new front panel is 1 3/4 inch rosewood
    the bass is better then ply wood

    because Le8 the Qes is 0.44 need good material

    Thanks for the info boputman. Hmmm- more things to buy.

    Also zzzzKendall- I love the thick baffle solid timber baffle. Will you use concealed fixing from the back of the enclosure?
