Winter warmers for Aussies: new DST drivers and 3 designs now accessible
WES Components, Australia's DST distributors, have recently updated their catalog. Their usual site www.d-s-t.com.au is being updated, in the meantime the new catalogs are available from their retail store Wagnerhttp://www.wagner.net.au/speakers
Unfortunately, prices are not in these catalogs, you will need to call in for pricing (typically very competitive with US pricing)
On top of maintaining the existing Peerless HDS/XLS series drivers, they added the entire new HDS family, the 12" XXLS subwoofers, as well as an exclusive dual 4 ohm voice coil.
A handful of ScanSpeak parts have been added including the S2904-7100-00 (dome version of the SS ring-radiator) and S2905/9700 (shielded 9700), 15M4531K00 (5.5" Revelator midrange)
Of particular interest to Aussie DIYers are some Vifa drivers that already have ready-to-build designs/recipes. No hassles with cabinet and crossover designs, or importing drivers from US:
*classic* Vifa M21WO-39-08
as used with the D25AG tweeter in Dennis Murphy's Vifa Tower:
*new* Vifa DX25TG as used with the Peerless 850488 in
Troels Gravesen's HDS/DX:
Vifa XG18WH00-08, as used with the Seas 27TDFC (also availalable in Australia from http://www.acousticconcepts.com.au) in John Krutke's XG18MTM:
As usual, my recommendations for inductors comes from Equinox Audio (www.equinoxaudio.com.au), capacitors (Solen, PMT and others) and resistors (non-inductive wire-wound) from WES.
All you need is a router and a shed.

Two more DIY design that uses Vifa parts, previously unavailable locally to Aussies.
as used in Troels Gravesens' 24L floorstanding 2 way:
as used in the Wayne J's big MTM floorstanding Eros
You might be wondering- am I not affiliated with any aforementioned business?
No. But as a DIYer I was looking for a long time for designs to build. Unfortunately, sometimes the tweeter was available, but not the woofer, or vice versa.
So, in total, here are 5 designs newly accessible to Aussies.
This summer it will be a great time for speaker building.
I have yet another excuse to stockpile drivers. Check out my website for in-progress projects...
