congratulations!! Nuances STs are amazing looking.
Any word on the new woofers on the HT-3's?
The cones have finally passed muster so the only thing left now is the surround tooling. Hopefully that will be complete in the next two weeks and we can being producing surrounds. Then we'll be all set.
Dealing with machine shops can be quite frustrating. They are almost never able to do things in the time frame they quote. So it makes it difficult to plan.
The aluminum baffles for the new SongTower RT's were promised to me one week-end a while back. We finally got them 45 days after they should have been completed in the first place. During this whole period, the SongTower RT project just sat waiting. Had I known it before hand, I would have done some other type of front baffle. But that is past history and now they are done.
With the HT3 woofer, the test cone samples were very late and when they arrived, they were not in spec. The second test batch was also late but, thankfully, measured correctly. So that issue is resolved.
The surround tooling was supposed to be done a while ago as well, but was delayed for one reason or another. So we started some parallel tooling work and expect to have final tooling very shortly from one of the two shops working on it. That is the last item left to go.
The wait has been agonizing to be sure, but once the tooling is complete we'll have all the woofers we need from there on out.
