Carver Amazing 60" Ribbon Better Than BG 60" Ribbon From PE?

Post by megasat16 » Thu Dec 03, 2009 10:27 pm

So, I wonder what are the options to get the replacement for 60" Carver Ribbons. I know Dave S would repair the old Carver Ribbons and TM in this forum may have new ones for sale but besides them, anyone makes ribbon or sells ribbon materials?

Would BG Ribbon be comparable to sonics performance to the ones come with ALS?

Mucho Gracious

Edit : Apologies! Copy and Pasted Within Both Forums make me looks like an A$S! ](*,)

From what I know DaveS and Toy Maker have the best solution. Parts Express I think has a replacement but someone said that they are not as good as the OEM from Carver.

From what I've heard the BG ribbons are not the same as Carver's.

BTW, Toy Maker RUNS this forum.

Screw the BG ribbons. Sub par replacement. Dave will make them proper.

Thanks Jesse for pointing this out! Shame on me but it's the result of posting the same questions in both Carver forums. That's why I don't like to post in two forums at the same time.

Thanks Beemer and Tuffman! I wonder how to ship the ribbons to Sir Dave S. I don't even want to start thinking about packaging and shipping the ribbons.

Nothing out there as good as the origianls.
BG never made a 60" either, theirs was 75"
I have a set, but never bothered hooking them up, and X-over point is 400Hz..
WAY too high for what I want.

Contact Dave, he'll tell you exactly how to pack them.

Yep James! I was incorrect! BG never made 60" version. The longer 75" RD75 is not going to work with the Carver Plats.

So, I am thinking what options do I have with the crap ribbons. Send to Sir Dave S or buy a new set.

Any chance Sir Dave S might help rebuilding these ribbons at home? I've taken one apart before and able to put them back without any problems (works well after putting them back together) but with much difficulty and with some tinkering.

Your best bet is to buy a couple of cheap WalMart gun cases with the foam lining & ship in them~

Listen to what Toymaker or DaveS says about shipping them. I heard the story about that set of ribbons and it was not pretty what happened to them. Packaging is very important. Lets me say that again...Packaging them correctly is very important!
