Rats. You should have 2 of each whizzer. I'll get replacements out ASAP if you want them. I should be more careful counting. Little buggers stick together!

Good point about the peanuts. I'll look for some bags. I'm not quite sure what to do about the whizzers. Maybe wrapping them in something would help? How did other folks' units fair?

OK Paul, thanks.

Maybe put them in a little baggy and put that in between the 2 drivers? The face to face drivers will protect them.

As you Betsy/BetsyK customers know, the speakers are individually boxed, and then, ever low budget, I just tape them together to ship. Early on I thought they might be prone to separate during shipping. Yesterday was the first time a customer received one when I had shipped two! I really think the next batch of B/BK may use this packing method.

Pjanda, I'm writing about this driver in my blog, can I borrow the frequency plot image and upload it to my page?
Thanks
J

Hey Paul, just remembered. When that box came, I heard a knock on the door and couldn't get there in time. Then I heard this slam, and shortly after a vehicle driving away. Only the day after did I find the package, and figured that the slam was the box and its contents being "dropped off".

The contents are perfectly fine as far as I can tell, but I thought I'd submit this for your consideration.

Paul, the post #4 response is referred to an unit whith the smallest size whizzer?
And , besides, I'm perfectly aware that a frequency response plot sometimes does not tell the whole story. But how you can describe the treble range of this unit, (playing standard music program)? lack of it, moderate, or overbright?
Cheers
J

Nope, that is with no whizzer, which is why it is nowhere close to fullrange in the graph. The small and medium whizzers give enough treble, IMO, and in my room are balanced and fullrange. The biggest whizzer will give you more up to 10K, which will be to the taste of many who crave "detail" and "speed", but to me counts as "overbright" (in stock form).
