If we're talking current production, the Alpair 12, primarily because appearance was not a design concern. Possibly one of the Supravox range for the same reason.

I'm not a fan of the cosmetics of those, but they can be tarted up:

Any word on the sound from those Dave? I've been curious about them from the beginning.

I think you can get better sounding drivers for less.

I have a pair of treated & untreated in the same mMar-Kel boxes for anyone that wants to come by and compare.

It is possible to say what is happening (greater downward dynamic range), but you have to hear to Grok what it really means.

The Coral Beta-10 is a beautiful thing.

I've never seen a Coral in person. What is the material of that white ring in front of the frame? It's quite deep. Don't know if it cause some reflections just like rear-mounted without chamfering the baffle hole.

The phase plug is unique, no doubt. Looks like a carambola (starfruit).

The Fostex F200A is the prettiest driver out there!

I found this thread this morning when I was having my coffee and thought to myself; Self, I can do better than that. These and the best sounding RS 1354 your ever heard.
