A better look at the Beryllium ribbon tweeter. Easly the most effortless and cleanest highs I have ever heard.   Not that I'm an expert or anything (seriously), but this is one hell of a driver.

Repaired crack from a little further away.. Camo-crack. Not noticable from a large distance away.

S 1010 box.. These suckers are heavy, thick walled (all 1" at least) plus a ton of internal bracing.  Very unusual... but the inner sides of the cabinets are also veneered.... :)

How the approx 1" holes appeared... There was a drip in the glue from a previous attempt at fixing the spider. When I accidentally hit the loudness button, extreme distortion over extended the cone and hit the hot glue drip (which has since been snipped down)...   Since these cones are so thin and rigid.. they are also fragile. POP.

Pioneer S-1010 Passive Radiator woofer. Plan to run a single layer of carbon fiber along the back of the cone in between the red lines to reinforce the holes and maintain symmetry on the large cone.
