Fostex is a japanese company, which mainly produces recording studio equipement. At the same time it is one of the better respected and often recommended names on fullrange drivers scene. Official information is sketchy and their web sites are not updated very often. Their drivers are nevertheless very good, especially when price/performance is concedered.

Sigma Fullrange Series
Fostex Sigma series are designed for backloaded horns. These drivers are the FE108 Sigma, the FE168 Sigma, and the FE208 Sigma.

FOSTEX FE 208 SS

Apparently there is a driver, which can not be found on Fostex's official site, and is somewhere inbetween 208 Sigma and new 208 ES. Its motor has bigger BxL ( 13.3 Tm) and needs special adapter to fit driver to hole in an enclosure, because its motor is so big. Diaphragm seams to be unchanged.

This series includes 200mm full range drivers, relatively flat freq response from 50hz-20hz.  These are designed for baffle/vented enclosures.  The smaller diameter FE drivers have dome center caps while the larger ones have dual cones.  Fostex driver magnets apparently include both ferrite and alnico.
