Audax HD-3P tweeter replacement kit

Audax logo

The  Audax HD-3P  tweeter was a piece of exotic, visionary engineering from the 1990s. Fundamentally a piezo tweeter, it featured a gold spattered elliptical diaphragm formed onto a nitrogen filled balloon. Technically and sonically brilliant but fatally flawed due to gas loss and barometric pressure changes; many are now defunct with low / no output or exhibit the 'crinkle of doom'.

This unique, state of the art tweeter was used in various high end loudspeakers including the World Audio Design KLS3, KLS10, Heybrook Duet and Heybrook Octet.

We offer a replacement kit for the HD-3P featuring a matched pair of the excellent Scanspeak D2905/950000  tweeters with custom built crossovers - our crossovers are modelled with LspCAD 6 Pro / Audiomatica Clio and built to the specific application.

Mission 753 Crossover Rebuilds

Mission 753 Crossover Rebuilds.

We now offer a crossover rebuild service for the ever popular Mission 753 floorstanding loudspeaker.

Rather than using specific crossover capacitors, the 753 featured standard aluminium electrolytics wired in series to form non-polarised electrolytics - this far from ideal cost / space saving excercise was part of the price to performance balance, and to be fair worked reasonably well but is now a prime candidate for upgrade.

Another potential problem with the 753 is the very high tweeter failure rate and subsequent crossover damage:

Melted inductor

The 753 often turns up on auction sites with dead tweeters - running these speakers with open circuit tweeters for extended periods of time causes the tweeter bypass inductors to heat up and melt; we supply a kit of components to cure this issue:
