Drivers arrived today and looks good

I will not comment on sound until I have connected a tweeter
Well, maybe I will try and mount them in a pair of older Lowther Acoustas I have stored in my garage
Im a bit curious how that will work

I have a pair of sealed 2 cubic foot boxes that currently have Altec 755Cs in them. You can see them on this page: Enjoy the Music.com New York Noise Show They are in the top picture - the black ones that are the innermost pair - that's me with the beard) I'd like to try a pair of the BetsyKs if they're still available. I sometimes add various tweeters (usually one of a variety of old Radio Shack tweets), which I think would be good to experiment with with the BetsyK.
I'm in NJ.
Let me know.

Very tempting offer, Zen! Actually, I've been thinking of trying different drivers in these boxes (and using the Altecs elsewhere, actually!), and now I'm excited about the BetsyK! I think a BSC would be a good idea to try (it's a nice efficient driver, so losing a little might be ok), and who knows, maybe even some heretical EQ!
I also have a pair of JE Labs-type baffles, and I'd love to hear the original Betsys (Betsies?) in there,but I think I should stick with one project at a time!
I'd be happy to document my experiments. I'll also use solid state, class D, push-pull and single-ended tube amps. (Yes, I'm trying to convince the head Burro to include me!)
Pete
