Found my old woody cup 225s in the attic and did some additional mods. New foam pads, blue tack on the drivers, a couple of holes on the mesh and felt pads behind the SR225 badge. Thinking about changing the cable, enjoying it first so far. Nowhere near the TOTL cans but still fun and convenient to use. Wood is local hardwood we call Kamagong.

Nice! Can you explain what's going on here? Are the sr225 plastic cups still in place? Or is it only the face of the plastic cup in the wood?
I'm a bit confused. Lol

More pictures please!

Only the face of the plastic cups were retained. The new housing is all wood.

Hi,

any idea how to remove the driver from the cup? Will heat work?

Unfortunately the glue holding the drivers in the sleeves doesn't give with a hair dryer. There are two options:

1. place a block of wood the diameter of the driver over the white linen side, and use a wood clamp to slowly force the driver out the back end of the sleeve. Be sure to use an exacto/scalpel to cut away the little plastic nubs behind the driver on the inner wall of the sleeve before doing this. Do not put the jaw of the clamp that isn't on the wood on the back of the driver. Put it on the wall of the sleeve.

2. Use a hacksaw to make a thin cut through the wall of the sleeve, making sure not to cut the driver at all, and then using pliers to carefully pull off the sleeve.

I use option 2, as quite frankly I am a big ninny, and option 1 scares me.
