    I just picked up a SONY ES N77 amp and 1000esd pre-amp and I have these drivers in my collection, and I bet they would be an amazing match to the SONY ES system. Going to build these DIY and put them to use. :D

    You'll never want for another system. Done right, those speakers sounds fantastic.

    Lol, yes :D That's a drawing I made. My vision of the final. I have the woofer drivers which I purchased at a thrift store and the horn drivers from Ebay. The wooden radial drivers I will hopefully (DIY) make them, or maybe use Altec metal horns. Sweet :D The drivers were part of this FOSTEX monitor series from around 1980. btw, Dennis, nice art work, congrats !

    Very nice - I'm in the process of getting a pair of RWOFostex LS/3V speakers up and running. Just waiting on getting one woofer rebuilt and then they are good to go. Mine have the L475 woofer, D252 mid compression driver and T825 tweeter. Mine are in the original cabinets with the H420 horns. Just the one by itself sounds incredible - I am sure you will be pleased!

    The wooden horns, just search Fostex enclosure on EBay, among the selections there will be some manufactured by a guy in Moldovia. He does excellent work and he can make the wooden radial horns for you. His pricing is very reasonable and freight might be less expensive that what you might think. He kniows his stuff.
