Now, that is totally awesome!!! Shocked

That ought to start up a lot of conversations!

Have you seen how much those Nautilus Tweeters go for? Fantastic tweets, too bad. So just sub in the Sonys.
Yes, those are actually called 'nautilus'.

Thanks Drew, No idea of the price.
If so the kindness of the guy will need to be appreciated more me thinks.

It amazes me how much cutting, filing and individual pieces go into your work.

It's why it takes so long unfortunately.

A thing of beauty is right.  The flexible mounting is a great idea.

Thanks for the comment, appreciate it.

Making 4-6 of these is certainly going to keep you out of mischief for a good while!

One is more than enough  Grin

Cheers

Hmmm, just looked it up, a new diaphragm is relatively cheap ($75-300 USD), the whole tweet is just stupid.

Did he also give you the crossover? I'd use any tweet if so, chances are it will be fine.

No he didn't and this is where my headache starts as I don't know anything about them either Sad
It's too techno for me.

Stunning work ... hope it sounds as good as it looks.
I have a set of SONY satellite speakers off an old system and you have just inspired me to 'recreate' them.
Crossovers used to just a simple R\C network hung off the back of the speaker pair. Not sure where it's all gone to in these modern days or whether you can even buy the discrete components as I used to do. Jaycar might be a good starting point.

MCM electronics or Partexpress should, also, carry various parts along with already built units.

We don't have those down here.  Angry

Jaycar might be a good starting point.

or maybe Dick Smith's.

Using them online is no good? I assume the freight would be too much $$.
Ah, poop.

They got all the stuff, checking out the Parts express at least.
I'll have to compare prices.

Meanwhile trimmed some weight  Wink about 1/4" off the bottom of the supports.
4 of these knobs look better than just bolts.
