Frugel-Horn kits include everything you need to build your speakers except for drivers, glue, clamps, and finishing supplies. The kit includes two speakers, the attached photo shows the parts for one of the speakers.
In late 2006 – ’07 a small group of enthusiasts collaborated to develop a compact, inexpensive corner-horn design for the DIY community. This project became the very successful Frugel-Horn, which even spawned an extremely expensive commercial adaptation. The Frugel-horn Mk3 [FH3], a ground-up new design, followed and has been a very successful design with many 100s of builds. The FH3 led to many requests for a similar cabinet for larger drivers. That led to the Frugel-Horn XL [FHxl]. Now we introduce the Frugel-Horn Lite [FHL}, a smaller horn for 3” drivers.
Initially designed and tested for the Fostex FF85wk, it has been simulated for other drivers and like the FH3 and FHxl should find itself suitable for a wide range of drivers. Currently vetted drivers: Fostex FF85wk, Fountek FR88ex, FR89ex, FE85, Vifa TC9FD, AuraSound NS3, most 3” Tang Band units (some with the huge motors may have some clearance issues), Mark Audio Alpair 6.2 M & P (will require a supraBaffle to fit big bezel), ScanSpeak 10F
FHL is made freely available for DIY builders to make their own cabinets; we see it as an introduction to back-loaded horns, from which people may wish in future to move on to larger and / or more complicated designs.
This is not my design. For the full history, creators of, and plans for this fine loudspeaker please visit www.Frugal-horn.com.
Other drivers can be used, please email me with questions or requests at firstname.lastname@example.org.
