The original tip-plug used by Acoustat is Abbatron/HH Smith p/n 108. These are available from many electronic distributors, one of them is Allied Electronics (www.alliedelec.com), their p/n 920-0108, $14.35 for a pack of 25.

Keystone makes a near identical tip-plug(p/n 1601) that you can buy in smaller amounts for $0.40 a piece.
Allied Electronics p/n 70182233.

Alternatively, if you prefer crimp connection to the wires, Molex makes some tip-plugs that I can attest fit well:
Molex p/n 19211-0005 (non-insulate)
Molex p/n 19212-0005 (PVC insulation)
Molex p/n 19213-0011 (Nylon insulation)

Mouser Electronics and Digikey have these in stock.

The model X's have been wired , warmed up and tested. Upon first listening I missed the height of the 1+1's, but the X's have better bass and a fuller sound, if not quite the imaging of the 1+1's. They are also easier on my 100 wpc hybrid amp. The volume at 11 o'clock is quite loud in my small (11ft. X 14 ) room. Thanks again to those who helped with my questions. Now I am on the hunt for an amp for the 1+1's !:)

Your comments about the differences between the 1+1 and the X (or any of the later Model 3's) are spot-on! In the pre-Spectra days, there was always that set of compromises in the different models that pitted imaging against bass response, etc. The later Spectra models largely addressed those issues due to the segmented approach. Finally Acoustat had a line where each successively larger model simply offered more of the same performance, without the previous trade-offs.
