Amazing how a $10K speaker that looks high end on the outside, looks like it has been thrown together by someone in a shed from the inside :-)

yep my thoughts exactly would be disapointed if i had brought a new pair they wanted 2800 to fit new bass panels and upgrade xover plus shipping cost so its over 3k ouch! thats why i am having a go at repairing them myself.

they are fixed at each end with support in the middle i have listened to these before and they are really transparant thats why i am going to the trouble of repairing them. in some respects they are the best speakers ive had .

Hi Bryan T, You can get the foil from CPC 9 mm wide and 45 mtrs long for a few quid. I have used 100's of mtrs of this tape, and the glue is very good . It has lasted over 20 yrs without falling off. Best of luck.$10,000 for a pair of planar speakers, I'm glad I built my own. I have built over 25 full range planars and counting, still rebuilding my old designs, will it never end, such is life. I don't use rubber to fix my diaphragms, I use a wood frame and screws, which don't rot, and you can re-tension if need be. If the 9 mm is too wide you can cut the tape in half, I use scissors and have cut many many mtrs using this method.In fact I have to cut another 45 mtrs for my latest rebuild.
