I’ll go in again later to check tightness as some gaskets will settle. But finishing touches only.
They are different. The Be mids are far superior to the originals, so that’s been an improvement over the pair I have in storage.Nice work on these Tim! Are you happy with their sound and how do they compare to the Labos?
Good job. You have crazy skills. And I was happy with my arm replacement !So there was a noise. It’s a noise I’m pretty sure I’d noticed before, something felt like it could occasionally be a little distorted. Not obviously, but a little hashy. But I hadn’t used any music to really aggravate the middle range like say uncompressed treble or female soprano or mezzo can do.
I got a new disc yesterday and there it was. Breakup in the right hand Be midrange. Like a little shatter or odd doubling. Hmmmm. Over to the speaker a d off with the grille and the magnetic screen of the mid (genius). Put on nitrile gloves (Be is poisonous) and I can make it stop pressing lightly on the left side of the surround. Hmmm. Email to Bill Legall after the grilles are back in place.
Response: We don’t have the kits anymore, but sometimes you can find them in China, you can exchange the parts. Oh so the well enough versed user can take these apart. Swell. So out of the cabinet comes the driver, and out come the six screws which hold the protector and dome and coil and the mount plate in place. The protector comes all the way off and it can be set aside. The whole assembly comes away from the magnet, and was set aside on top of a bowl (to avoid any pressure on the coil). Next fold a bunch of cardboard and see if the gap is dirty. Dang it sure was. Fashioned a bunch of those folded cardboard cleaners,got the 91% alcohol and sprayed the wedges and cleaned all of the stuff out. Took my trusty neo ring magnet and place do it near the first cleanings in case any was metal. Once the wedges came clean, I lightly brushed the actual coil with a dry natural makeup brush to get rid of any loose stuff.
Back together and it’s as good as it was new. No more noise at all and a purer sound. The other one will be done tomorrow to match. It’s not making noise, but I’ll bet the gap is dirty. Note: these are dry gaps.
