    Wonderful! Any info on what design they will be doing? The Quarks, or something else?

    Ah I was a fool and missed the sale on the Fountek FE-83 driver. Was there talk of a flat pack for these? Or does anyone else have some extra drivers they were willing to sell? (Doubt it as these are apparently awesome little speakers!)

    I do understand that the FE-85 can be used as a replacement, but the extra xmax and deeper bass of the FE-83 would be preferable for me.

    What an inspiring picture. Like a giant monolith in a crop circle. I have something cooked up for my Quarks that I hope people will enjoy seeing.

    Thanks Ken, the inductor and resistor had come loose in on of the Quarks. I used typical hot glue...obviously it was not strong enough to hold. So I re-glued with silicon.

    We'll see if that corrects the vibration.

    Thanks,

    Robert

    I really hope to see many other builds as I really enjoy mine.
    That is amazing. Who bought so many that quickly? Sorry guys. Now we need someone to drop in an FE85 and see if it truly is a "drop-in"

    Woodsart,I don't have any vibration I would check for a component vibrating or a loose woofer.

    Kind of hard to believe, taking into consideration that they started out with more than 6,500, not too long ago. I am glad I bought mine a while ago: enough to do an array and some extra's for Quarks and such.:D

    Hi Ken, I am enjoying mine as well.

    There is some vibration on the sides of mine. Is this normal?

    Those little woofers really move.
