Thanks GM. I think it's because my laptop is old and running an older version of Acrobat.

The plot looks fugly.

Actualy Zilla, if you look at the scale of the measurment, it actually measures better than most Fostex fullrangers of equal SD and the resolution of the graph is MUCH better than the smoothed Fostex graphs gone over with ink freehand Scaling a measure to represent a more presentable performance is common practice.....and let's not even talk about accuracy or the lack of measurement condition reports where 'wacky' tecniques are used for a positive outcome yet are still 'accurate'! We've heard this discussion lately haven't we.

As to other 'Boutique' FR's.....at least Dayton's giving you the off axis info, the question is why aren't they?

Knowing my ears, that plot looks not only honest, I bet I would love those things.

You have ears, too? Gosh!
(I thought the big speakers were to make up for the no ears thing)


Put a small inductor in front of that driver and it will flatten right out.

I'm having trouble with the 8" pdf... what downloads is an empty file...checked it in illustrator.

Attached is the factory FE166En FR (dotted), overlaid the Dayton. Fostex data doesn't look any more smoothed than the Dayton.

Probably because in the scheme of things it's irrelevant to folks committed to single driver systems or at least for using them over the majority of the audible BW where any XOs used are typically outside our acute hearing BW.
