No pages, sorry, but two (obvious?) facts: Thiel mid and high inverted domes, Eton woofers.

Not very mutch is currently obvious for me...
Thanks for the input (I'll just take what I get and see what info I'm having at the end.)

Could you give me a reference to a dealer that seels the Thiel elements? I guess you don't know the tiel type for some of the models? Not that important yet, as I have'nt decided for one special model to build.

regards TEK

I remember I talked to Adrian Bankewitz (the company's boss) about his Avalon-OEM business some tome ago;
as far as I remember he does not produce any special drivers for Avalon, they are using the "normal" series models.
As there are not too many different units, you should be able to determine the correct type just from the Avalon and Thiel specs.
Happy hunting!

Hi TEK,

I don't what particular model from the Avalon range you have in mind but here's a copy of the filters a friend built for his Ascent.

Hello

Thank's a lot for the scematic.
What speaker I will build depends on what design/drawings I get my hands on.
The Ascent is absolutly a very good candidate.

But the cabinet shown on the picture is'nt the Ascent, is it? I thought that the Ascent had a "flat" lower part.

A couple of questions;
- Is it possible to get contact information to your friend that build the speakers?
- Do you know if he have drawings for the cabinets?
- Do you have any information about the damping material used?
- Do you know where I might get my hands on the Eton element?

Regards, TEK

Eton is distributed by Intertechnik (as far as I know) and is atleast available in The Netherlands and Germany. Check http://www.intertechnik.de or http://www.intertechnik.de/cgi-local...lass33.grp&&13 other shop http://www.schuro.de/eton.htm (cheaper than the listprice)
Just a warning Eton drivers are quite expensive!

Hi Tek,

If it isn't the Ascent then it is my mistake,I guessed.

It has been a couple of years since I last met him so I think the best way for you would be to visit his website and send him a email from there.
And say hello from me if you like.

http://www.gydotron.com/

He's currently building a new version of the speakers,you may ask him if he sells the older pair.

The damping material he usually uses is Pritex (kind of PU foam).

If I can be of any help just send me an e-mail.

Regards,
