Any experience with FPS Planars?
I'm currently looking to build an aesthetically-pleasing surround-sound system. My system is mostly for listening to music recorded in surround-sound, where 5 full-range speakers are required.
On Parts Express, I came across a set of wide frequency-range planars manufactured by FPS.
For example, Parts express carries a "FPS 0212M7R1 OEM 1-9/16" x 6-1/4" Flat Panel MCMA Planar Speaker 6 Ohm 15W"
Their small depth gives me a lot of flexibility with keeping my system aesthetically-pleasing, and wide frequency range is appealing because it allows for a simple speaker design. Furthermore, their cost is also appealing; as a 5 or 7 channel system can quickly become expensive.
Unfortunately, I can not find any review or mention of these parts.
Has anyone used FPS planar speakers before? How do they perform? Will the above-linked speaker need a tweeter? Should it be crossed-over with a mid-range or woofer? Will it work well in surrounds, that might be closer to my ears than the front speakers?
