I do like where you are going with all of this!

Flourescent paints are scarce. i used an off-brand. It went on just like the stealth testors, so i hope it is fine.

Do you think you could paint the dustcap of the grey Alpair 7.3 speakers in the same color as the CSS SDX-7's phase plug (copper)?
If so, I would only need to wait for my new Hypex nCores and I'd go into sawdust-mode...

No i don't think i could do that. One might try but it would kill the HF.

What could be done, with Mark's cooperation, is to directly order a pair of grey A7.3 and pay/bribe/wheedle Mark to swap the dustcaps for those from the copper cones (that colour was originally done in the 1st gen CHR to get as close to SDX7 phase plug as possible).

Thats what I was thinking, but thanks anyways.
Didn't even know that painted drivers could be usable at all until I found this thread, so I thought I'd just ask...
Your work on the other drivers is amazing btw.

I'll shoot Mark a message and see what he says.
Hopefully I won't have to sell a kidney, because I am quite satisfied with them.

Dots contribute anything sonically or just for looks? And how do you get them that even and have that much patience for all those drivers!?

Also how do you "aim" the process at certain resonances? It seems like it would be more like a guess and check sort of deal where you guess once and then check to see if it actually helped

Go here to learn how to apply these little dots so that it is a planned and rewarding activity. Then poke around in the rest of the urls in the attached text file.

Yes it certainly does. The aesthetics are just a bonus.

Why, we don't really know. There is an algotithm for findng where the rings of spots go.

Will the glow in black light rings glow in the dark? Or just under black light? That would be very cool to have those going while some friends are over.
