Those are the drivers for my horn tweeters.

:eyebrow: no there's not.

And ATM, no I don't have a proper EQ. Just making due with what I have... if it sounds uber ****** with a 5 band I'll just put the XT25's back in till I get a dual 31 band.

IIRC those are the compression drivers that the newer ID Neo compression drivers are based off of, no?

Which horn bodies are you going with?

Molding your own ? :naughty:

BTW....those domes are a PITA to fit back into that tiny *** little gap without rubbing the VC horribly, and aligning them correctly. Took the compression drivers to my CH1's apart few times.

These have a small machined part that... SEEMED atleast... to fith the diaphram perfectly... maybe not, we'll see when I get them in.

The DE500's HAVE to be what ID based the neos off of unless the are using something other than B&C now, because it's the only neo 1" CD they offer IIRC.

I ordered the ID full body horns as I doubt anything I molded would do that good of a job.

That and the looks are nearly identical IIRC (been a while since I've seen a pic of the ID neo, but I remember the neo B&C looking just like the neo ID).

But ID, that I've seen, has neither confirmed nor denied it. All I've ever seen Matt say is that "they're not the same"....meaning ID probably had them slightly modified (in my estimation).

Either way.....nothing but praise is what I've heard about the ID neo's....so those should sound spectacular. I've honestly debated about doing the exact same thing you just did....buying the B&C Neo's and a full bodied ID horn. Bastage, you stole my idea :mad:

What's better is I picked them up at the PE tent sale for a cool 20% off. No shippping FTW!

You wouldn't have happen to have picked up a 12' Toslink cable and fiber optic coupler for super duper cheap at said tent sale, would you ?

If they have tubes at the tent sale, I'll give you teh moneys beforehand. PE is the only **** US distributor of SV811 triodes, and in a year my current set will be halfway through their life. 20% off would be a plus.

Not bad for $64 ;)

He picked up some revelators for dirt cheap last year and I picked up some nice cherry prefab cabinets that happened to have 2x 6" RS drivers, the RS tweeter and a xover made by Darren himself for... I don't remember it was like $60 or something stupid like that? The Morchellas were out there too by accident and I almost walked off with them w/o knowing it but I found out before I left and was nice and gave em back to Darren... He owes me lmao :)

DIY dayton is a nice event too... they give ya a discount on everything at that sale too (at least historically)

I should be bringing some DIY of a completely different nature to this Dayton DIY :naughty:



Nice looking compression drivers there ;)
