Default Help with MBL type Radialstrahler build

Hi,

I did bite more than i can chew with this project and would like to find someone in the Montreal, Quebec area to help.

Back a few years ago i had a pair of omnidirectional radialstrahler (MBL clone) drivers ; tweeter and mid range manufactured. The drivers came unassembled and need to be put together and re-tested...

There is no "instruction manual" but access to the talented craftman who made them..

This is an opportunity to build something unique...

Maybe look up Sparrow Legs Speaker Design. From what I've red in the past he's on Facebook and willing to help other DIY'ers through contact there.

Thank you very much Cubby01!
Great recommendation indeed. Might still need a local guy (Sparrow is UK based it seems) to assist as i am not much as a speaker person..

You may want to provide a little more information about the state of the drivers currently (with pictures) and exactly how much help you think you need.

Assembly and testing can mean so many different things. I could see assembly being a couple hours of work or much, much more, but I'm just guessing.

Also, are you looking for someone to help finish the whole project or just get the drivers reassembled?

Thanks to James from Sparrow Legs Speaker Design, the assembly is completed. Great guy!

It seems that i can't download a picture directly to show you the final product (only a link??)

I am left with testing and integration with the mid and sub...
