The big whizzer and dustcap units are gone. I've had folks express interest in the last pair, but no paypal yet! So I still have three for sale.

I believe all I have left is the single with the dinged frame! I'll let you know if I miscounted.

Like I said above, all I have left is the single, no pairs! For those who are looking for speakers, the Betsy and BetsyK really are better in every way, and they aren't to expensive at $50 and $55 each, respectively!

I keep forgetting to post it, but the single is gone. That means there is no safety net, should you get glue in the gap. I have no replacements, so be careful! (Only one person has had a problem, the single is now in their hands). I like the "gel" loctite because it doesn't run.

Just wanted to say at after a few months with these speakers, listening every day, I am still in awe. My room is on the small side, but after a long break in they are really perfect to my ears (and most everyone that comes over)

So, whens the next "experimental" speaker coming out from Wild Burro Audio?

Which whizzer did you use? Still can't figure out which to use on mine.

The directionality of the BetsyKs is inconvenient to me, in my small, heavily obstructed room. By no fault of their design of course. Is it possible that using a smaller whizzer will decrease directionality, and improve HF behavior? And allow me to equalize out HF rolloff?

there was a 3 page thread started in march on what a whizzer does, very informative with graphs before and after whizzer removal. Yet other threads people like large or small whizzers, but not 8" whizzers for some reason. My an10 has a tiny whizzer, but I've never hooked it up. People seem to like the huge whizzer on the 12lta also, and people seem to like the whizzer on the fe166e and fe167e, and some like whizzers on even smaller drivers.

Here's the link.....

whizzer and intelligibility ?

The whizzer on an 8" helps dispersion from 2khz-4khz. If you cut off the whizzer (on a flat coral 8a anyway), the drivers response climbed from 1.5khz around 6khz, then fell off above that.

Otherwise the phase is wonky, especially where the whizzer and cone are both operating.

And yea, to me an 8" full ranger (even with a whizzer) is maybe 2 people wide dispersion up to past 5khz at 12' (using 8" whizzer no phase plug and a different 8" with phase plug).

p.s. those purples seem to have had an excellent freq response.

Norman

Im using the medium whizzers. I dont have a problem with the dispersion, but it is noticeable if you sit in weird places. But generally its good.
