Default Urgent, alternate supplier for Aurasound needed

Madisound told me that the Aurasound Titanium tweeters weren't included with my order because they ran out, so I need new tweeters. Where can I get the NT1-204-8D 3/4" Titanium Dome Tweeter, or a substitute?

Go to www.aurasound.com, and click "Dealers" in the column on the left side.

This will take you to a page of dealers which contain, among others:

www.audiojunkies.com

www.solen.ca Right in your neck of the woods.

www.unical-usa.com

In addition to Madisound, of course.

Good luck!

PS: Couldn't find a price list on Solen's website, so perhaps you have to Email them with the model number for the quote.

Perhaps they (Solen) can special order it...Madisound said it'd be 4-6 weeks before they're back, so that's not an option. What about a substitute for the NT1?

Thanks, Brendan

Did you contact Solen? With no price list I could find, they might have them in stock and be ready to sell you one. Don't be confused by their page which lists stuff they have "on sale"-that's only the stuff that is marked down in price.

If you contact Solen and they don't actually have them, I would think the best person to contact for a substitute would be Zaph himself. You might want to include the fact that this is a project for school.

Finally, I think Timin8tr did some project with NT tweeters-maybe he has some experience with a substitute.

Oops, my mistake. If you click on the Aurasound icon on the Solen website, you get their Aurasound catalog and price list. And the NT 1 isn't on it.

Try the other suggestions, I guess.

Hi,

The Dayton ND20FB-4 has exactly the same fitting. It could be used
as a temporary substitute by omitting / increasing R5 in the crossover.
(possibly using R5 as R4 if they are too bright). It is not ideal at all,
see http://www.zaphaudio.com/audio-speaker20b.html ,
you should fit the NT1 (+ R5) when they are available.

/sreten.

I just need it for double checking my Xover and the correct fit in my baffle...So they ARE they exact same size right?

Thanks, Brendan

Sorry Brendan, I have no good answers for you. See this post for reasons why I won't recommend the PE rear mount neo. It has packaging issues. In fact, I plan on pulling that wall-mount design that uses that tweeter until I can redo-it using another one. I don't need to hear from anyone who bought one that didn't have a dent in it, but I would like to hear a recent buyer tell me the packaging issues have been resolved.

That said, if you want to take your chances with the PE rear mount neo, you will need to make it behave as close to the Aura (with L-pad) as possible. That will mean new L-pad values to match the impedance that the filter sees and the level the system requires. If I can find the time, I'll look at it. If I can recommend anything, I'll do so and stop back here. No guarantees.

For anyone else looking at this design, I'd say don't build it until all parts become available.

Everyone should be aware that every project I've posted has caused a run on the drivers used and has become unavailable shortly after. This NT1 dome is used in 2 of my recent designs and as such it was inevitable that it would soon sell out.

Nobody can contact me. I like it that way.

Thanks Zaph, but is the Dayton the same size? I just want a reference so I can construct the baffle correctly, and also the Xover. I don't mind waiting for a new tweeter, but I'd like to start on the enclosure ASAP (for a school summative). I can't cut MDF @ school, and I was thinking of using Baltic Birch. Problem is that I wanted to see the plies of the Baltic birch on the front roundover, so is it possible to have the baffle recessed, while preserving the same box volume?

Thanks, Brendan
