    Foreword: The FXA7 is a 2BA 1DD hybrid by Fender, derived from Aurisonic's ASG series (but apparently diverging from their sound). This unit has been graciously loaned by @shotgunshane.

    Analysis
    • V-shaped signature. Quite a bit of treble energy and bass power but not overwhelmingly so, IMO.
    • Minor nitpicks in the channel matching of the bass frequencies, but other than that it's spot-on.
    • Long fluctuations in impulse. Will have to try to correlate an audio quality to this characteristic.
    • Bass is rather quick for a hybrid. Midbass is the main focus of the lower frequencies.
    • Not stellar THD, but passable.
    • Very stable with impedance. Should be expected of hybrids at this point.
    • Overall, I quite like the FXA7. Expected recessed mids due to the V-shaped sound, but a very enjoyable listen still.

    Thanks for posting this.

    I would love to see more measurements of the current Fender line up.

    Got any of the others on hand?

    SGS sent over a FXA6 as well. Tonight's not a nice night for measurements; will do it tomorrow.

    If there is interest in the Fender iems, I can send more next go around.
