    TAD 2404 Build

    Its been a while folks ....

    Many of you know Ari .... He's helped many of us get those components we've drooled over . He helped me get my 1500AL a few years ago .

    Ari and I talk on the phone quite a bit and during one of these conversations he declares ownership of TAD's rare and highly prized parts for the 2404 studio monitor . I've been trying to help him sell the parts after he decided to go another direction ,but after 6 months no one has shown any serious interest ..... So then we decided to put them in cabinets to try and sweeten the deal . Now he's seen them he's not so sure he want s to part with them .

    Theres still the grills to make and the stands ( in the same design and material as the speaker ) Some labels made by the Paolo in Italy . He did a wonderful job of the TAD 2251 project I did last year .

    Nice Rich!

    I love the skid rails on the back of the cabinet ( protecting the crossover parts ) .

    How about some more pics ( please ) ?

    Hi Rich,

    I think your message is a bit too cryptic ( as a proper cry for help ).

    Descriptions of ( initial impressions/disappointments ) are helpful ( assuming you can't provide any response captures ).

    Ian ( Macka ) at one time had a network schematic for the double woofer model ( I'd suggest contacting him ).

    Did you build the horns ( or are they someone elses handiwork) ?

    The horns are original Earl .... The crossover is completely different to the TN 4 ... I've emailed GT sound for advice . I don't understand why they stopped making them .....even with the hook up issue I can hear what they do .

    In the category of "I saw it on the Interwebz, so it must be true"...
    Googling for 2404 images to compare, the upper/inset panel terminals may be missing some jumpers.
    Having a valid schematic/wiring-diagram would indeed make things simpler.

    Hi

    The TN4 is a 36 Db low pass on the Tad woofer

    The high pass is 12 Db

    The horn has a series and a parrellel trap and a Lpad fixed

    There is a mild bump in the horn response

    I never had a chance to test it on live drivers

    There are other ways to set up the horn

    I would look at an active DSP these days

    Beautiful work as always

    Rich, you are a true craftsman

    Have you checked the voltage drive of the crossover on the Tad driver?

    It might be going too low

    Suggest you inspect the diaphragm.

    Are you the original owner?

    Bad news!

    there look´s like on of the Td-4003 diaphragms is broken, there is a hole in the surround

    I was going to sell the speakers and get some profit but it look´s like now I will get a big hit out of this
    I have ask Speaker Exchange about the price for new Td-4003 dias and the price is 2200 USD for single and more than 3600 USD for single Td-4003 driver

    this is very bad because Richard have made a great job in his work on the the enclosure

    there is unlikely at I will sell them now, the most likely is that at I will get all the parts shipped back to me with the beautiful 2404 enclosures and the project will go on hold until I have got new diaphragms for the Td-4003 drivers

    I have send mail to the seller who sold me the driver parts
    he said at all the parts he sold to me were 100% in good shape

    the best way for him is to send me two new Td-4003 diaphragms

    If you were my neighbour you could borrow mine (4003) so you could at least hear those beautiful loudspeakers go after all the work that has been done.
