According to the theory EnabL should work all places there's a sudden change in air pressure, so that should include port/horn openings on boths end, bracing holes, on cabinet edges and naturally on the drivers themselves.

The EnabL theory naturally.

I'm not sure the theory accurately explains why EnabL'ing does work. And I have my own theories on it but I do think it's beyond a reasonable doubt that it does in fact have an effect on the sound.

Even lacking a theoretical basis, it's easy to settle this empirically. Either it's audible or it's not. I do have two sets of identical drivers and have been A/B'ing them for a month or so. It's a lot easier to listen than to slog through the debate. I guess I'm lazy.

Yes - on a cabinet!
The only way to be sure is to try it for yourself.

Cheers,

Alex

I assume you're referring to EnABL driver treatment - and the impressions of your listening are ....?


Full disclosure - I was "brain-washed" at my initial listening session at Bud's place almost 2 years ago, so for me the final (?) outcome of the technical / theoretical debate is meaningless.

The only thing that matters is getting closer to the music, and for me the polka-dots open that door just a little wider.

Hi Chris, I'm writing a mini-review as soon as I can finish my little experiment. I promise to post by the end of January. What I'm doing isn't scientific but I hope it will be informative. I will include a picture and lots of words.

Thankfully, throughout Hx, people have pursued such nonsense and come to prove the "sensible theory" wanting. That is the nature of science, the progress of learning, understanding... Scientific method has disproven innumerable sensible theories and proven many theories that were once considered nonsense.

Personally, I would not dismiss just because it has not been proven; this would limit my willingness to investigate and understand. However, I may choose not to accept or utilise something until it is proven... or I may take a leap of faith or investigate it myself.

Cheers
