    Ahhh ... some famous "Engrish" translation. We had nothing to do with that piece - it came straight out of Akishima.

    (I admit I initially wasn't sure which brochure you were referring to ... I did write the brochure which initiated this thread! )

    I remember one incident when a Foster representative visited us in Winnipeg, witnessed from the back seat as we took the Japanese executive to his hotel ...
    Japanese passenger: "Oh, I see you have erection!"
    Canadian driver: "Yes, that is true."
    Japanese passenger: "How often do you have erections?"
    Canadian driver: "Normally, every four years. This year we are having two though ... one for city government and the other for federal government."

    Are, these (time aligned) because I noticed the (horn driver) was ahead of the (bullet tweeter) can these be bi-amplified and if thatís so then a little delay on the four drivers that I noticed in the picture. They look elegant.

    Yes. We referred to it as 'time-coherent'

    You could do that but we never felt it would be of any benefit and I do not know the time constants necessary to do it.
    They look elegant.
    Thank you.

    Thumbs up do you gentlemen think

    do you all think that this may be a Fostex horn?

    Is it possible to have the damage repaired?


    I'll post some better pics/measurements of the pair soon...

    OH, man, HOW did that happen?

    Im gonna say that YES that can be fixed, BUT Im going to leave this for the WOOD GURUS to answer how.

    Guys like Widget, and some others are JUST better equipped to answer how, than I am, and I REALLY want you to have 100% success at repairing this!

    happened in shipping, but to the seller...
    maybe part of why he decided to sell...


    they were pretty reasonable, i believe due to the horn damage...


    complete with FD600s...

    I am figuring I may need to enlist the help of a local furniture maker, or
    find another local craftsman...

    It just looks possible to fix. I am just NOT the guy to say how.

    And I DO agree, especially considering the weight of the driver that must be attached to the horn, to have this repair done professionally.

    There are guys that work magic with wood.

    AND research who is the REALLY GREAT woodworker/cabinet builders in your area.

    Cause the success of this repair, IS the SKILL of the hands doing the repair.
