Line source adventures

After having seen several compact line source designs based on small full range drivers pop up in the product offerings from big name manufacturers I became intrigued and decided to give this a try.

The Faital Pro 3Fe22 driver seemed too be a good choice since they perform very well, have decent power handling and are affordable in larger quantities.

I decided on a sealed system with ~1,3dm3/driver when sectioning them in groups of four, and it works fine when combined with some low end support, in this case by two THAM10's loaded with Faital Pro 10HP1020.

Setup:


I'm currently using a Linux loaded skylake I3 NUC with a HRT microstreamer D/A as source, processed by a DBX Drivereack 260 and powered by two LabGruppen IP450's.

The system sound very clean and hints of having a lot of headroom if needed, no doubt it is overkill in the current application, but it sounds really good so I'm happy.

I also tested them together with the ROAR12 with impressive results in an outdoor environment, I really need to do this again, the FCAM123 seems to really like the outdoors, and they sound just fine at a distance.
