Default 9.2 SYSTEM UPDATE.

Have finished covering my 9.2 full range planar speakers! Using the sewing machine was harder than building them, and more frustrating. Breaking threads all over the place, glad I have finished them Have still got more rebuilds to do mostly ferrites. Will be putting some more videos on utube. When I have found all the different music off my cards!Will be playing some piano music, as this is one of the hardest to reproduce correctly!!??

Default 9-2 Amp parameters

Could spend the rest of my life trying all the different parameters available with my new 9-2 Amp. But I don't have enough patience to do this or time left!? I wish there was an automatic program you could run on your computer which would do it for you!!

Thank you both for your kind words, I am lucky that I live on my own so I can do what I like, lucky me!!! I know its a big problem when you are married. They are very hard to please, at the best of times. Still you could always turn them into pictures with a very nice subject to please the better half! Or get a big garage in the garden and put them in there! The 60 x 40 mm is a very good size, you get good bass as well. As I said there just the right size for most hiding and disguising situations. Better than the large APPOGEE and MAGNAPAN sized speakers and a lot cheaper as well.

Default Pole pieces

Hi, just a thought, instead of using so many magnets why not use neo 50s
but instead of 1k use only 100 with pole pieces attached. There would be some reduction in the field but it would still be much better than ferrite strips.
Cheers
Boiss

Default LATEST REBUILDS FERRITES

The holographic ones are the latest rebuild and the blue ones are the next. They were both doubled up ferrites and very heavy. Have used the 23 micron membrane with the thinner width alu tape. This makes them more sensitive and very much lighter and frees up more magnets for other designs. The MDF is the new frame for the blue speaker. The white one is the old one made out of an old wardrobe door so was free. The magnets have been re arranged in a single layer. Doubling up the magnets was a complete waste of time and magnets, for no benefit whatsoever.
