Default WTB Apex Jr. Ribbon Tweeter

Hello all,
I am looking for a number of a ribbon tweeter sourced from Apex Jr, manufactured by Fuji Sanwa, AFAIK. It's a spiral coil on the ribbon, constrained between two magnets with a waveguide and perforated metal protective grill.
Anyone who has these to spare, I'd greatly appreciate it. To Planet10, I already contacted you via email, so no need to repond here as well.
Will pay reasonable prices.

Thanks all!

Nope. But that he did! But, no joy there. His 1200 (!) units sold out, somehow.

WOW! I figured those would be around for a while.

I bought 3 pair a while back and they are still awaiting the fabrication of the enclosure they are to be placed in.

May I ask what type project you used them in, and what X-over you chose?

6 units? all for a pair? Lookin' at high sensitivity I guess. And yes, you may ask, but I may not answer


Actually, the project is a little wierd, it's a 2 way with a series XO, using an MCM 55-1200 4.5" midrange. I used a high tweeter cut-in to damp that peak and level match the midwoof. Enclosure is .55 cu Ft. ported, port tuned to 65Hz, IIRC (been a while since I calc'd it) . I'll probably try a sealed enclosure with the same XO to get better integration to the sub... but I'm going to eventually also need to get stereo subs.

Actually I bought 6 units for "what ever"... The price was good and they looked interesting.

So you are using series XO... Ok.. I was going more conventional with parallel.

Let me know how they end up sounding and I will do the same.

I am actually planning on using them with four 2" drivers per speaker to make a desktop line array for my computer.
