Default NAGRA's Jean Claude Schlup's Plasma Tweeter and Reverse Engineering from Photo

Click the image to open in full size.

Hello , this is the plasma tweeter which is in place of NAGRA's Research Development Department Manager. He is conducting the company for last 40 years.

This design has been taken at a factory tour and I was not the lucky guy.

How can we reverse engineer that plasma tweeter from picture , Is it possible to identify the engineering secrets and DIY at home.

What is the role of 6 input sockets ? How a genius tune it ?

there are at least two extensive threads on this type of tweeter here, suggest you might want to search first.

IF you build one, PLEASE put a grounded screen around it!!
It is both dangerous to touch AND it radiates RF Interference (RFI).
Also the frequency ranges it can run in are limited by international and your countries laws, rules and regulations.


No magic - the one you show in the image is pretty simple...
