Picture taken of a Sony ECR-500. There are sweat screens on both sides, they're made of extremely thin ?PET? film at very low tension with millions of crinkles in it, spaced perhaps a cm away from the metal mesh (which is just outside -and I believe in contact with- the stator), and they have roughly the same radiating area as the diaphragm, perhaps slightly larger.
Hope this helps.
And a beauty shot of the diaphragm just to heat things up a bit. Somebody's gonna make a DIY stat with a scalene pentagonal diaphragm, right...? Riiight?!
I might take the SR-5 apart for you guys if you're truly interested and there's meritable cause, although I wasn't exactly planning on it for myself.
