I must second Scott's general impression. I've used the 6.5's and the super 8's and was underwhelmed. They are OK, but lack the sparkle that the comparable Fostex drivers have. The build quality doesn't match the Fostex either. Also, one for one is size, the AN's have larger Vas. That may or may not be an issue depending on what you intend to put them in.

The price differential just isn't enough to make me go for the AN's. The few $$ don't make sense considering the cost of other parts and materials, not to mention the labor.

Thank you all for your input. I am going to pass on the AN drivers.

I can imagine. Luckily, I live several thousand miles away.

She'll get over it. Make sure the first thing you play once the cabinets are finished & you've got them properly positioned is something she likes. Her opinion will mellow. Women often like high quality sound more than many people think (that sounds really sexist doesn't it, although it's not meant to be so). Several of my ex GF's have what many people would consider to be huge speakers that I built, and they refuse to part with them.

Yes, Bigger Is Better.

I imagine i'd be building speakers for gf's if i wasn't married.

I'd like to hear the AN drivers. Anyone on Long Island that has a pair?

I live in the St. Louis metro area. I've gogglemapped Common Sense Audio's address, so I know exactly where they are. Now, if I just had some sort of budget . . .

Of course, the one I'd be interested in most would be the 12"er as it looks like a giant B20, pre-phase plugged, and I'd want to use it OB. The next most interesting is actually the Super 6.5 as it looks like it would make a thunderous, though very slender BiB.

It'd need a heck of a big baffle.
