Default Slightly creased driver MA CHR-70

Hi All

I was fiddling with my microtowers yesterday and noticed to my horror that one of the drivers have a slight crease. I have no idea how this happened, but its there. It does not appear to have altered the sound.

Click the image to open in full size.

Its probably worth leaving well alone, but can it be flattened out?

Does someone in the UK have a spare Mk1 CHR-70 for sale?

Thanks

Richard

Do you have children? I've a very similar looking mark on one of the chr-70 in my centre channel that I've put down to either one of mine or one of the others half's friends kids and wandering fingers .

If you do find any mk1 available , I'd be happy to half's on a pair .

Richard,

Good to see you back at the forums - albeit not for the happiest of reasons. If the unit is working, let it be, and best of luck in finding a replacement one in case you pursue that option.

How are the Microtowers playing now? Bass is better?

Hi Zia

Good to hear from you too!

If the truth be known the cabinets were put to one side for most of this year as I have been really busy with work and family. I'm also on the committee of a photographic club and this takes up a lot of time. Fun though.

Yes the bass is much better thanks. The back of the cabinets remain unglued as I wanted to run the drivers in before sealing them up. I currently have the playing at a low volume all day, every day. Once a have a few hundred hours on them I will start playing with the stuffing. There is currently stuffing behind the drivers, and down to the bottom of the lower brace.

Hi Steve

Yes, but these were in a box out of the way

Richard,

Your photography is really top notch!

For CHR-70, if I recall correctly break in time is not long as the Alpairs, but a daily run-in to get the hours on them is a good idea.

Thanks Zia

I've noticed a substantial improvement in the last 72 hrs!
