Few day’s work ; reason for operation was – broken ends , due to too much manipulation (they aren’t exactly made flexible …. while still fragile )

Intention was to dismantle them , without ruining end stickers ………. ya can call me enthusiast 😉

However , thin foils are better …….. to my ears

Btw. – main stickers ( at fork ends ) are having arrows , as that cables are “directioned”

I couldn’t see any fact for that , in their construction


…..and , yes , they aren’t mine …….

K3809 as main driver , K3833(K3836) as bass helper

K3809 are mine , while K3833(K3836) , stars of previous blog entries  are prepared for SuperFi’s Westminster project .

Just having fun with some old OB “wood” , gift from Chakija ( he’s not feeling young enough to continue playing with them 😉 )

Disclaimer – I really wasn’t expecting real bass ……. that’s max width I can squeeze in living room , where spks must be situated ; also , MJK OB software didn’t predicted it (bass)

But !! – there is bass , at least in my smallish living room ; sound is remarkable , even with crude and quick xover , without any efforts put in measurements and polishing of same ; OB is far from optimal in almost every area , but it is so fun …..

Pair of non-matched Tanns – one 3833 (mint) and one 3836 ( supposedly needing recone), tnx to enormous and kind help of Ninja (and smuggling expertise of another friend – Paja959) – obtained from outer space for my kiddoe – SuperFi . As confirmed on net , difference between 3833 and 3836 is just here and there in color of some details ( golden ring around surround on one of them , while on other one, that ring is black) .

After some examination , measurements of all coils Rdc , I decided to make most direct and most benign steps , to decide is it necessary to buy new cone (150E franco BG) , or something else can be done .

So – all was needed is to soak spider circumference with acetone , pill it up , then unscrew 4 imbus bolts – to remove magnet assembly from basket ;

Bingo !
