Using twice as thick perforated steel sheet, about crippled me cutting it with scissors, the holes are a lot smaller too. I hope this will increase the sensitivity?!

Which one is the monster? Have used all my 3 mm neos, only have 60 6 mm ones left, but have few more ferrites as well, with the success of the magnetic tape one, I will probably build some more of these if I can duplicate the first one which was as sensitive as a neo one. This was a big shock to me, you live and learn or not. I am still learning, surprise, surprise. Still there are so many different parameters involved, you will always be surprised. One of the perks of DIY!!

There is one song on my USB stick which sends one of gapped planars into a frenzy of resonance really loud, the other one is normal on this track. Changed them over just in case it was the amp, but no still makes the loud noise and diaphragm moves about an inch or more, any ideas???

If they were made to be identical then look for differences. What's the easiest thing to try, first? Tensioning of the diaphram? Maybe lay them horizontal and measure sag of diaphram from the same weight placed in the center of each one?

Funny isn't it have played over 3,000 songs with no problems then one track comes up and everything goes tits up on 1 diaphragm. Just shows how strange music can be. Makes you wonder whether you know what you are doing at all! You think you have solved a problem then this happens, well such is life I suppose. Still have not found a similar problem yet on the pair I am using at the moment, with any other track. We shall see, one never knows what's round the corner.

First of all, kudos to you JAMESBOS, we're sittin' here jibber jabbering while you're down in the basement getting it done. Awesome! But promise us you'll get someone to help you next time you have to move them, OK?

As to speakers that sound fine on all but one track, I always listen to solo piano to reveal misbehaving diaphragms.

Default new design of full range planar

Am in the process of thinking and building a new design of a full range planar. Still mulling it over in my mind, hopefully all will fall into place. Like to think things over in bed, my ideas and designs usually reach there goal when thinking in bed! Wish me luck.

Silly me ordered the wrong sized frame, must be going senile. Will cost me 10 postage, let's hope it is worth the effort! We shall see or not. Still keeps me out of mischief!
