James,

How does the Kapton thickness compare, say, to a drum head? Is it kept taut with a system similar to a drum?

-wheelluup; i do remember that mr BC changed and patented his ribbon attachment method


-as far as i could tell you...kapton material iz finer [less mills] than a clear snare drum


-mr BC',s design for attachment differs than 'apogees style' and other ribbon speaker builders


-i believe the term 'floating' was used...man i should just ask you...

-how does a tube work ???, and you may understand the quanundrum




-mr rhino; i hope that you can pu a pr of plats for your amps [mk4's, oak, low was 12bills thru sir F1's buddy...7bills for non mk4's]...betchya; mr BC himself would fly-out to help you

-thats the very cheapest $$$, ive seen, for nicety's 8) ...

-dont leave-out the silvers :D

I'd love to have a pair of Plats and would have them now if economics were not a factor. The next biggest factor is space. These things could change for me in the next several months, but it's very hard to see beyond the immediate future for us right now. My time on the sidelines could come to an end.
