On the bright side, I finished a BD-Pipes Project with the Radio Shack 40-1197 today! Almost two years of planning and finally some results. A special thank you goes out to Andrea and her dad at the Minnedosa speaker factory for all their fine carpentry work.
The drivers are 4" Radio Shack 40-1197 (FE103) full rangers, two of them per enclosure and thus no need for a baffle step compensation (BSC) circuit! The speakers are still being broken in, but thus far they sound pretty darn good. I am surprised how much bass these little four inch drivers produce. Being full range, the imaging is great. So far, I am pretty pleased with the sound. I'm looking forward to hearing how these sound when they are broken in.
