7. A white shim may be present when you remove the MF diaphragm. Please take care to leave it in place when you replace the diaphragm.

  • This shim is not always present. Some units may require it to precisely adjust the clearance between the diaphragm and the phase plug.

10. Solder the lead wires on the Fast-on terminals



11. It is advisable, at this point, to do an acoustic test, to verify that you have installed the diaphragm properly:

a.       Hook up the driver to an oscillator and an amplifier.

b.      Conduct a sweep test from 200 Hz to 1000 Hz, applying 3 – 4 V rms. During the test you should not hear any noise or strange vibration; instead, you should hear a "clean" sweep sound. If not, it is possible that some particles of foreign matter were left in the gap.
