Hi there. I'm back, and here is the embarrassing story I have.
I got the replacement driver from Danny, got it wired up and it worked great. Soldered in the bypass caps and hooked up my stereomour from bottlehead and it sounded great. Not lots of headroom (3.5 watts).
So I tried the bottlehead battery powered quickie preamp into the Folsom 7297 chip amp. Sounded great, but before the song was over, popping, crackling and lots of intermittent fuzz started. I tried swapping everything I could and it was still there. No idea how I was going to fix the gear. Turns out it was the directv box on the shelf below it. Took too many days to figure that out.
Love the sound, even in my untreated room.
I was going to put grill cloth over the drivers but behind the baffle, just didn't fit.
Now I am looking for best treatments to make and install to improve my imaging.
Thanks for looking and when I get a better handle on the sound to give a little review, I will.
