The best coils to be wound down are the ones that have baked wire. That way the coil remains rigid after the process.
Mundorf has them for example.
SB will eventually supply ready made crossovers anyway.

Yes, I wonder that too..

I would like to hear something how this "boxes" actually sounds like? It's there any comparison with other high-end drivers like Skanning, Acutone or SS's best?

By the way has anybody went that far and constructed a 24db x-over with this satori drivers (yet?)

I agree with Mr. Gerhard that newer tweeters has an outstanding ability to withstand low cut-of freq/high power. Been feeding many normal "1 inch softdome/harddome" with over 250w (QSC RMX 1450) in my active system and occasionally played at serious levels without damage. (x-over 1,5khz to 2khz /24db mostly)

With SB29, 1,5khz is no problem and you can almost play as high as you want =) The satori version is probably even better with back-cup/front-plate in casted alu. (or similar)

Only the the very old Philips AD0160 i tested couldn't take this but that's another story

It is a bit silent here because i ran into a mechanical problem. The rooting of the woofers is too tight in the factory made cabinets. I have to turn down the diameter of the woofers on a lathe a bit. It is maybe less then half of a millimeter.
I hope to solve that this week and then i will finish the speakers so that i can listen.

cnc is so accurate you don't need to check router adjustment like we have to
it just does what its being told to do

but even painting and laquer needs to calculated
many forget that

if driver chassies are painted etc, it may even have been forgotten there too, and factory specs are no longer 100% accurate

Sure, that is the reason that i usually draw with 2/10th of a millimeter over tollerance.
That was not enough here.
Anyway, the tweeter fits just fine.
