That's just what I could be interested in. In a room where one cannot physically fit a large speaker the choices for a quality small speaker presents a real challange. I had a pair of AMT-1's when they came out and thought they were dynamite. Only problem was that the diaphram was easilly fried. I wold love to lay my hands on a couple or reasonably priceed drivers.

Mark-Daniels has started manufacturing If I properly remember they produce the small monopolar Heils at 371 US fpor DIY. Check on the web. (or it was in Canada???)
Some others in Europe also do it and some off them to sells for DIY's.

I love Heil's cristal clear sound. Im Proud to have some.

Check google DIY Heil

Good luck

The 2 pair of Marks & Daniels Heil-style tweeters are both dipoles. Nice tweeters but they aren't anywhere near as efficient as the AMT Heil (88-89 dB estimate) making them much less useful, I still have a pair if someone really wants a pair.

I once was interested in importing FAL drivers from Japan. No problem via
FAL also manufactures Heil drivers, but even the big one seems to be no dipole:

A really good new amt is th Beyma TPL150, ive been using it since last november and think it is superior to my ESS amts, although it is not dipole but can be rebuilt (with care). Efficiency is superior to ESS, 99-100dB, can be applied from 1000Hz, can play loud, accepts lots of power and pricing is realy decent, in Sweden roughly 450 euro a piece.

AurumAMTs have some strange response on the graphs.

What I dont understand...we do everything we possibly can to avoid diffraction...and now these "frontgrilles" present on all AMTs I have seen, are you saying that they dont introduce any problems ?
sometimes we know very little, and sometimes we know too much
