Here is a update on the wizzer/voice coil former. It went pretty well, it is durable for sure but for now I need to make a former a each wizzer. Hentai, I can try to make one with paper for you, but what kind of paper do you want to use.

Hi Frank,

Looking good, looking good. How much does it weight?
Good paper is that used for calligraphy, should be around 100-150g/m2 density, 0.2mm thick.
Can you change the outer diameter to something bigger?

Hi Hentai

I am sorry to say that I had no luck in making a wizzer with paper, I only had silkpapaer so that is what I used. But I think if you are going to use paper it is best to use a positive and a negative form, under high pressure.

The weight is 3.8 gr with the voice coil. I did a quick test and it relay works...There is plenty of energy in the high frequency range, a super tweeter for real. My guess is that it start a around 4-5KHz and up, but this is just by judgeing by ear.

Here is some pic's:

Hi Hentai,

Sure I can make a pair of wizzers for you. But sense you have access to Machinery, the best way is if you make a former and send it to me. You can make it of any kind of hard plastic or even hard wood, and if you make it your self, you decide the dimensions. On the other hand... if you like I can show you in more details how I make them, the hard point is to make the formers when you don't have the prober machinery. Once you have the former, there is relay nothing to it.

I apologize for intruding.

But where do you find a suitable selection of wire for VC?

Very nice thread btw! Best I've seen for ages!

For regular enamelled wire, check transformer winding supply houses.
Be CERTAIN to get "high temperature"wire, if possible "Class F/170 degrees Celsius" because nowadays thin wires often come in weak self fluxing enamel, which is designed to *evaporate* when hot.
VERY bad in a VC.

Here is some spiders and voicecoils.It seems you have to cut the hole to the right size for the voicecoil yourself.
