Fostex FE206En Double Bass-Reflex SpeakersFans of low power tube amps love high-sensitivity full-range drivers like the 200 mm Fostex FE206En and with good reason. The drivers are relatively inexpensive, they sound good and they do not require a crossover. The main reason for the fan fare is because of their high sensitivity (96 dB / 1 W / 1m), which makes them ideal for use with very low power amplifiers. However, the high sensitivity and wide frequency bandwidth of the driver come at a cost - a very low mass paper cone and a tiny excursion (Xmax=0.8 mm). This adds up to mean that extracting bass from the Fostex FE206En is often a challenge. The common solution to this challenge is a large back-loaded horn type enclosure.
