Updates and Upgrades
« on: 14 Jan 2018, 07:30 pm »
We will start posting comments and details about upgrades and design/parts changes here.

As many of you know Eton discontinued the tweeter we have been using for several years, but the new tweeter from Eton is definitely an improvement. Greater clarity, detail, extension, better off axis response etc but still the same natural Eton sound. :thumb:
This tweeter uses neodymium magnets and is a smaller mounting, so we have had to design a mounting flange so that it can be retrofitted to older systems and also for use in our dual offset tweeter systems.

My neighbors at work, the awesome metal wizards!
David and Robbie from CJ Manufacturing. These guys are the best! Their shop is right next door to the Daedalus factory and they do all our custom metal work.
We just finished the prototype for the new midrange mounting rings, (the final will be black anodized). A very nice improvement in clarity and they look cool as hell!
Thanks guys!

Lou

Is there any chance of doing a black anodized version of the mids trim ring?
or similar to the color of the woofer trim ring?

The silver seems to stand out a little bit from the other drivers and deemphasizes your luscious woodwork

Any options for a half length speaker cover on the Apollo?

Thanks

Tom

:duh: sorry I didn't make that clear, they will ALL be black anodized, these pics were just the prototypes.

We should have them in about two weeks!! Will post pics of the final black version then.
