    Haha, they might have two b's, but maybe just one.

    I like the Tioxid focal tweeter, it is also notable that this was the last user serviceable tweeter focal ever made, so in the event you need to repair, $100!

    Every tweeter after that? Around $1k and shipping it to France, for the higher end stuff

    Nice find!
    Micah

    Main system: Technics SL3200, Shure M97xE, Lafayette LR1100 for tuner, Hagerman Audio Labs Bugle 2 phono stage, NAD C352 integrated, Boston Acoustics VR 2, Boston PV500, generic ICs, and BJC Belden speaker cables.

    Desktop: Dell Precision 690 running iTunes, Yamaha RX-v665, Monitor Audio R90s, Velodyne VA-907, generic ICs and speaker cables.
    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    I think the only reason you need to ship the new tweeters to them is because they're beryllium and that's quite toxic stuff for people like you and meet him play with...
  • VR3VR3 Posts: 22,477
    The new stuff does not have a removable faceplate where as the Tioxid build did

    After listening to these for a bit, they are similar to the mezzo utopia in that their presentation is more of a performance versus a recreation, very entertaining speakers with a brilliant Soundstage. The mezzo utopia is the better speaker though to these ears

    So after 6 months I figured something out... And I don't feel to bad as the internet is littered with "the grills don't stay on" banter

    These nifty little Allen wrench inserts are to secure the grill to the speaker so that it can't be removed without it...

    Feel soooo stupid but I reallllly like this function.

    I think you need to start using a highly polished stainless steel Allen wrench so that you can get the proper torque on those in the future.
  • VR3VR3 Posts: 22,477
    True that, the rust helps with grip

    I thought so, for the last 6 months I kept marveling how higher end manufactures can't seem to master the grill... Lol

    I was taking these apart earlier, can't help myself! Nothing to see though, crossovers are fully encapsuled in epoxy... Wonk wonk wonk

    picture or it didn't happen Trey you know the rules :D
  • VR3VR3 Posts: 22,477
    Wilson definitely built them to where if you want to take them apart you have to be committed, I removed the back plate and then removed all of the screws to the second! Back plate... There is only about one inch of slack in the wires and the back plate... Since this back plate is recessed 1 inch, you can just barely see in the speaker
