These have been many months in the making, but I am finally happy with the result. Bill send me the shells raw as I asked and I decided to put a couple of coats of linnseed oil on them.

Here's a picture of my burl cups (left) and the Cabillas cups (right):

Here's a picture of the Grado driver housing mated to the end of the of the Cabillas cup.  As you can see, the Grado driver housing itself won't directly fit into the Cabillas cups.  The driver itself will have to be "liberated" from the housing and then it will fit properly into the Cabillas cups.  Sure, this means a bit more work.  However, in the end, the results will be much more superior.  Getting rid of that extra layer of plastic is a big hurdle - but, it's all spades when it comes to improved sound quality.  At this time, I'm not going to liberate the SR-225i driver housing that's in this picture.  Instead, I'll await my Alessandro MS-1i and then perform the work next weekend on those drivers.  The cup opening on the Cabillas cups are 1 13/16" in diameter.  That's the same diameter as the driver diameter when removed from the housing.

And, drats, the local sale of my SR-325i Goldies fell through.  The guy decided to back out this afternoon before we were going to meet up. mad.gif


I think you know you have to liverate the driver!!!, i have information and pictures of this. Whatever i´m hapy that you receive them good.

Oh WOW, if my zebrano's off billa  are anything like those I'm gonna be one happy camper! Just beautiful!

dgcrane... or, I guess I should be asking bilavideo.. What screens those are in the zebrawood cups and how I can get my hands on some. I think I want to spray it gold and put something like that in my cups. I'm off to the fabric store to see if I can't tame a bit o this bass.

 

-EDIT-  fabric store was closed :((. Oh well, another day. I still need to take pics of the new cable.

If he is still using the same mesh as he stated sometime earlier in the thread its a .028 aluminum mesh. A google search for .028 aluminum mesh brought up an amazon link. This mesh is likely quite common at hardware stores as well.
