perfect that was the response i was looking for, only thing im worried about is the full woodie. ive heard what can happen if dismantaling goes wrong. knowing me imma go balls to the wall and do it anyway. plus plus full woodie will make the detachable wire mod slightly easier (if i can find someone to pay to make the woodies for me with a portion drilled/dremeled out for the female connector)

 

 

what would you need to create the template? a CAD program?

 


I'm wondering that as well. There are plenty of circle templates out there, but considering I'd need an extra inch to inch and a half for all OD cuts due to template bits that long being a minimum of 1/2" in diameter (so 1 to 1-1/2" extra on already weird sizes) I'm wondering if I could just make the weird sizes and use them rather than buying a bunch of different templates.

As for making them full woodie, you could always make an outer shell that drops down to the driver inside the plastic avoiding the need to remove plastic at all.

If I get into templates though... these things will have way too much Jatoba in the end. New shells, new inners, new gimbals, new rod blocks, a Y split on a recable, etc, etc.

^That's extreme optimism right there... misbehaving older drill press ruined hole saws for me. I'm never going to try that again unless I have a new laser guided, keyless, variable speed, bolted down, brushless, counterbalanced, blah blah blah drill press with carbide tipped, balanced hole saws with carbide pilots and all that good junk. In other words, everything will have to be a perfect dream shop to get me trying that again. Routers are the way of the future. Well, CNC is better yet, but who has $10000 to spend on something to make a part for their headphone?

Hahahaha James the sad thing is I don't speak enough mandarin to extort money out of that Chinese seller who spells contact as contast!

I'll pop by jaben once my cups come and try to do a comparison with jumbos. Hopefully they'll have them both. Provided someone else here doesn't beat me to it heh.

Been checking my mail box every day like a little kid for a week now lol.

tongue_smile.gif I was waiting on the screens Bill forgot to send with the cups the past couple weeks, but gave up recently because something probably happened as it shouldn't take over 2 weeks for something to arrive. I'll be looking around my house for something that might work with the cup, but if there's nothing then I'll have to buy something that'll look like it can work. I really suck at DIY stuff and my screens will probably turn out like crap, but I'll give it a shot anyways since I really don't want to leave my cups naked, it just looks so incomplete. blink.gif

I believe Bila might be rather inconvenienced at this point in time, hasn't anyone noticed how quite a few pages have gone by without his contributing a single post. Stay patient guys (:

In the mean time, you could just buy some of those metal letter holders that people are using from the dollar store.  With a tin snips or a wire side-cutter, you should be able to whip up some protective screens in no time at all.

Yes. Correct. By all means, don't interrupt a mad scientist when they're at work.  basshead.gif

I have two big a!@ sheets of dynamat extreme. PM me. Also you can buy metal mesh online. Its not that expensive. Cut a hole in it and be done with it.

The grado line has been able to handle all the d&b,dubstep, and breaks I throw at them.

(i know, open headphones = weaker bass by not having a closed chamber for resonance) I want open headphones, tinker-ability, low cost mainly, so these are almost certain to fit the bill. I ask because I read on here that the bass response was better with the woodies. any comparison graphs out there?

Walmart man, Get a cup made out of mesh.. that's what I used, cut it with some heavy duty cutters to get to the mesh and then scissors to cut the mesh to shape... It was a bit of a pain, but it works pretty nicely.

You might want to wear some gloves when you're doing the cutting - so the material doesn't scrape your fingers up.  Safety is key.

I found some unused cheap speakers with a metal screen on it. I cut it out just now. Now do I cut a circle exactly the size of the opening of the cup or....?
