    Yes sir, I just need to know the total height including the diffraction strip that came from the factory above it

    Total height of the entire speaker or just the tweeter?

    I would need to know the measurement from the bottom of the tweeter to the top of that strip in the photo

    Is anyone else having trouble tonight with the forum?
    I’m trying to upload a pic and it won’t let me do it.
    Keeps timing out.
    Anyway 4 5/8” inches

    Yes, tried to load a few pics and get something like a "failed to upload" error. Tried 2 different browsers and no luck.

    Yes Carlton I have been fighting that all night. Keeps saying something about vanilla servers. Something is amiss.

    I will draw up a mock up for the 3.1 tonight and update.

    I was having issues as well with pictures, I used url links from old posted photos in half the pics

    Will the AD rings negate the need for that plastic strip across top of tweeter?

    Really cool, yet functional upgrade either way.

    It should negate the need for the strip but also wouldn't hurt to leave it either

    In that case, I'll take a pair for the 8TLs when they are ready. Thanks for making these available.

    the dark line up top will be a route out to give it a bend

    So the material would go onto the tweeter faceplate AND the diffraction strip above it?
  • VR3
    VR3 Posts: 24,524
    Yes

    I could include two pairs, one without and one with four you to compare as well.

    The way that strip is designed it looks like it would interact with the midrange driver as well, so would need to test both to come up with the best solution

    Where would the velcro dots be mounte, in between the top and bottom of the RDO198's, using two dots or on each mounting screw using 4 dots? No question is to dumb right? I might pick up a pair for 2.3tls.

    I would probably do the top two mounting screws and then two dots below the tweeter, leaving the bottom two mounting screws floating. (for a single tweeter)

    I have more material arriving today, once I have everything cut, let me see if I need to order more to make for the 2.3

    I used the little doughnut rings on mine today for about a hour and I couldn't believe the difference, totally forgot how much improvement these things bring

    Those tweeters seriously need washers on the back side of the mounting screws.

    Larry’s rings are behind all of the drivers. Which is why you don’t see the regular Phillips screw there and instead you see the Allen screws. I did this during the big, giant dreadnought group buy of 2016. I also got Trey to do the crossovers. You can see the upgrades in my thread about it.

    The RDO tweeters need a washer under each mount point so you don't distort the bezel when you tighten them. I understand that those button head Allen bolts are also missing the countersink on the rear but that only makes the distortion of the bezel worse.

    However they're your speakers and this is a FS thread so I'll stop off topic posting.

    No washers on these either.
