Quite. A 3in cone, irrespective of type, is never going to be renowned for it's ability to shift lots of air.

So do you mean that the sound quality on my speakers aren't good at all? Meaning there are not high end speakers? I' am sorta confused.
'High end' as a phrase is context and requirement dependant, so if you like them, that's all that matters.

Neodynium = high end, not really,

Creative's been using neodymium drivers since 2003 as far as I remember, so did lots of cheap small portable speakers.

They're probably powerful for their size, but sound quality... lets just say any type of product got high-end and low-end versions.

The material properties of NdFeB make it capable of building the best permanent magnet speakers. New motor designs are starting to use NdFeB to its full potential.


This post contains a comparison of magnet materials.

What is the draw of older alnico drivers?

Please define what 'the best' is supposed to mean. Neodium's nominal magnetic strength &c. may be greater for a given size, but there's more to life and driver design than just that.
