My idea is to print out the design on photo paper cut it out to the face plate and apply clear acrylic over and leave it to cure

You will probably be successful with that method but ink jet printer inks have a tendency to fade in UV light, you may notice some degradation after curing and it may also fade over time.

Can DTEC 30265  used?

post #2208 of 2215

I suspect that the difference between the various DTEC versions is mostly about the position of the sound port, the number of solder pads on the back, and impedance.

I re-shelled my quad driver set today and I apparently killed one side but for the life of me I cant figure out how. The right side does still play sound but it is at an extremely low volume and I can only hear it when my player is cranked to maximum. Has anyone else had this happen to them?  This set is using the knowles GQ and DTEC drivers both on independent sound ports. I can't figure out what could have happened that would kill the volume on both drivers. Is it possible that I created a short circuit somewhere and the drivers are still good?

 

Edit

 

I cut into the shell and found out that yes, I had created a short, drivers are still good but now I need to build a new shell for that side. :)

Hey guys! How would Knowles RAB-32257 work for bass? Also would it be any good for mids?

for a single armature probably will work, for multi-driver you have better choices out there

Even for mids? What about RAB-31761?

I do have some RAB drivers but I've never heard them so I cannot really say it's just that those drivers are relatively small. it's like 1/4th of DTEC or 1/7th of CI in size - you can really use those bigger drivers and get better overall response in multi-armature set up. Of course you can use 2xRAB and some TWFK or other from FK or ED and get very space-efficient and possibly good sounding design.

I've been reading the thread and couldn't find a compact, summarized (maybe step by step) guide (or a summary in similar form). Anyone keen on that? Considering the common trend around here, it's kinda weird nobody bothered with that. Any effort towards such a source will be much appreciated. (Hopefully not only by me).

 

This is the most compact, step by step guide I've came across; http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-In-Ear-Monitors/

Don't know if the link is already shared and cherished, resharing wouldn't hurt I guess.

I've been searching the thread (and the rest of the internet) for a source of skin safe silicone for DIY CIEM's that doesn't require the purchase of huge amounts of expensive product.

 

Without success :-(

 

Maybe I've missed mention of this here?

If anyone can advise I'd be very grateful.
