    Replacing 044Ti's with - Something. 035Ts, 052's....

    So I tried to repair one of my 044Ti's, as chronicled here: http://mail.audiokarma.org/forums/sh...ighlight=044ti

    Didn't work out for me, so now I'm scouring the web trying to figure my options. I'd like to get a pair of new 035TiA's (have a pair on order) and bolt them to the rear-mount 044Ti housings. has anyone done this, or a similar fix?

    If I can't get hold of 035Ti's, how do the 052Ti's compare spec & performance-wise? Thanks for any information.

    The diaphrams for the 035's are attached to the plastic faceplate. They are not attached to the magnet assembly as a seperate phenoic part as in the 044Ti. You can't just swap things out using an 044 body with an 035 magnet and diaphram.

    "If I can't get hold of 035Ti's, how do the 052Ti's compare spec & performance-wise?"

    They are the recommended replacement for the 035's.

    Thanks much

    for the offer, Edgewound - I think I'll take you up on it! Just one is buzzing presently, I can ship to you at the end of the week.

    If you can't get it 'singing' again... I just need it back. 052Ti's are coming in and I'll rig something up.
