Default Cones of all flavors

Well just like ice cream cones, full range speaker cones seem to come in many flavors.

Just a few I've run across lately. Who's got some more?

Tang Band:--Bamboo
Fostex:-------Banana
Seas:---------Papyrus
Jantzen:-----Cotton
So-voioe:----Wool
JVC :---------Wood
Hemp:-------Weed

Yummy!

Selenium - Quartz composite fiber. Not very tasty, doesn't soften in milk.

The only relation of manilla to hemp, is that after Dupont got the US Government to make hemp illegal manilla was used as a substitute and the term manilla hemp was used to indicate that manilla was replacing hemp (which it didn't do a great job of and subsequently hemp was grown legally for the war effort -- and something similar should be done so the hemp can be used to make ethanol instead of corn.

/sorry for the politics (there is just so much mis-information wrt hemp)

Sugar cane is the best for that! We may be sitting pretty here on Maui, in that regard.

I know - I'll make speaker cones out of sugar cane! Guaranteed to have a "sweet" sound.

How much infra-structure support does sugar cane need (ie corn needs lots of fertilizer, and i believe chews up the ground)?

To be cost effective the plants need to be close to the source, so ethanol would need to be shipped to have a significant export market. I see ethanol in the long run, as a local industry, with little energy expended to transport it to its point of use (althou i guess pipelines would change that up a bit)

And that is one of the advantages of hemp - it will grow almost anywhere.And like the Eskimos & the whales, can be used for a lot more.

Sugar cane needs less resources...but the king is "switch grass", from the southern US. It yields 3 times the energy with almost no fertilizer and is pretty drought resistant to boot.
