The new Woofers are great they even have dual post just like the originals. I'm having a slight problem with the ribbons at higher power levels, it looks as if I will be sending these out for repair to James as soon as I get some extra cash. It looks as if it's time to get rid of some extra equimpment I have sitting around.

Hey guys I put my heart into these, hand rubbed finish...5 coats...new woofers..new solder joints and they sound fantastic and are getting better as the woofers break in. I will be sending the Ribbons to Dave to do his magic within the next couple of weeks if he can work on them. I really want these to be right. Thanks for all the interest. Funny thing is my wife really likes them too! Something tell me she's messed up something and I will find out soon!!!!!!

Yes you did put your heart into them and thanks for sharing it! I ended up with "2" bad woofers out of (8) but ada quickly replaced them so I am happy! Those ribbons will be singing soon and they will last for YEARS. Keep us posted!!!
BillD, You will be forever with us! RIP until we meet again on the other side...
