For all the work with BG NEO3 and NEO10 drivers, I have tested them along the way.  There have been poorly performing or bad units that were returned for replacement.

All the units I have are tested before use to make sure they are correctly working.

Just spotted that PE has updated the delivery date to 12/18/19 for the BG NEO10's.   :|

Hope Danny gets good news on his side.

I didn't know PS Audio is using Neo3s and Neo 10 in their new speakers.  This might at least partially explain the shortages.

No, they haven't ordered enough to amount to anything. They are also buying them from Parts Express.

Too bad for them.

I just got another set of measurements on the latest Neo 10 version, and it looked good. Samples will now be made and sent to me.

How long does that process take?

It varies from company to company on how fast they can produce a production run of drivers once a PO has been submitted. I'll keep you guys up to date.

Danny -- one more question --

Will your NEO10 version be swappable for the original NEO10? Stated another way, will you need to modify the Super 7 crossover to accommodate your NEO10 version?

Physically they are the same frames. But whether or not they can be swapped with no crossover adjustment needed is not something I can answer yet.

For anybody shopping for these, if you're quick on the trigger, Parts Express is showing 3 in stock right now.

Hello Danny,
Are you continuing to develop your own version of the B&G Neo 10?

FWIW, the Sounderlink AMT-2560 Chinese knockoffs are [$160 - $200].

Boy, I hope all the new Neo10 variants have better frequency response than this Sounderlink, which seems to have like a 13dB rise toward 10kHz?!  :duh:

It would be interesting to know if the rumors are true that the new BG drivers are improved??

Quality control and Chinese knockoff are oxymorons.

Shoot!  I may have spoken too soon since I just looked up the B&G Neo10 FR graph from Parts Express.  I suppose one can cross off the lowpass and highpass at strategic places to avoid the worst frequency response ranges, but still...
