All of the RAAL 70-20's I've worked with have had wrinkles.  If you felt how light and thin that foil was, you would understand why it's hard to avoid some wrinkles.  It doesn't affect performance.

A friend contacted RAAL some years back about the wrinkles.  It was a change in the manufacturing process that does not affect performance, but made the tweeters much more durable.  RAAL ribbons have been wrinkely for many years now.

Thanks everybody!

I really am loving these speakers !
Picked them up from a poster here - Hogzilla ...

He lives in my neighborhood and is a great guy ....
He replaced the Salks with a pair of Cornwall III’s...

He took my Klipsch KG4’s off my hands as well ....

To say the Salks are an improvement over the KG4’s is an understatement....
