To 95386, FedEx would be $18 (3 days), USPS Parcel (slower) would be $15.71. If you want the sale (which would make the K's $55), you need to let me know what you are planning to do with them!


All: FWIW, nobody has taken me up on the deal yet. I'm only going to let a few drivers go this cheaply, so don't hesitate!

Hi Paul
On second thoughts, ribbons are too expencive

Im now playing with a 2" widerange, and its quite good
Its a TB and cost like 20USD
Maybe I will look fore waveguide

Due to the Xmax thing it doesnt make sense to use anything but small amps
Single end tube amp, chipamp, small classD, or small classA or AB, anything small
So that will be the target
And it will be fairly easy to build

>>> I'm really new to all this and would love to try another of your speakers with maybe a helper woofer but am lost in all the techno speak I read regarding crossovers, 2nd order, 3rd order, EQ ? I haven't a clue. Building the baffles/enclosures would not be the problem for me but understanding the electronics and connection options is where I'm lost.

The Betsy/Boomer allows you to blend a helper woofer into the Betsy without the complication of adding crossover components.

Tinitus: that looks nice!

For all you international folks, given the rock bottom price, I'd appreciate it if you'd cover whatever fees your payment method incurs. PayPal dings me an extra $5 for international transactions, in addition to the normal $2-3. Of course, if you use Western Union, you're already paying the fees at your end.

Hi Paul
I figured you might like the "retro" look
Well, I have had this design in my head before
But needed a purpos, and the drivers

I will send you PM
But I will be honest and say that my time frame to present a fully documented design here, with detailed pictures and all, might be a year or so

If you want the whizzer to stay, it stays
I will keep to whats available
But I might want to mount a center plug instead, if possible

Possible to get drivers without dustcap ?
Or is the dustcap needed to mount/support whizzer
And is there drilled hole through center pole piece ?

The bk-16's are far too small for the BetsyK. You'd need to build a box that mates better with her. There are enclosures that size that will work (sealed, BR, some TL's), but a BLH would need to be much larger.

I'm patient, just so long as they don't stay on the shelf forever! The whizzer and the dustcap are basically one piece, so it is tough to remove one without the other. If you want to cut them both off, that shouldn't be a problem! The voice coil protrudes in front of the cone a bit, so you've even got some margin for error. No hole through the back of the BetsyK.

I look forward to your PM!


All who are interested: I've got one taker and a couple of folks who seem very serious. If you want in, you better throw your hat in the ring now!

Paul

Ask Keantoken if he might want a pair, I'll spot the cost.

I think he was looking for something like a Fostex fullranger
but Keen's got no money (16yr old kid designing amplifiers),
and these seem to me on paper better than the Pioneer...

I was gonna send him some no-name 6.5 FR's I had, but they
measure terrible now I got em out of the cardboard boxes they
been collecting dust in for years... Deserves a better reference.

He'll have to come up with his own project first, of course.
