Well said...

PS: i have a rebuttal for Jim. but this is not the place.

Is it the best?

It might be a wise idea for Markaudio to consider designing a full range driver larger than the 4" Alpair 7.3 and smaller than the 6" Alpair 10.2 with new generation technology that actually will do it all with more emphasis on a flat frequency response with a little less concern on efficiency. This is a fairly large gap in cone size. A metal model and a paper model would also be nice. Have I left anything out?

It is called the Alpair 8 and is currently in development.

For emotion in vocals I would not use metal cones, because it does everything right almost textbook, but no emotion and naturality, it's rather sterile and clinic, for electro and techno okay, but for vocals not.

A bit of an over-generalization?

Get on with it. I mean, since 'emotion', 'naturality', 'sterile' and 'clinic' have precisely zero technical meaning when it comes to speakers, and this is only your opinion in any event, I really don't think Dave is quaking with fear of your potential terrible revelations.

Go ahead. There are some i could mention myself, but i wouldn't say that makes the generalization true.

Yes it's my opinion, not influenced or biased at all... I'm not an "secret" agent like you two, everyone in this forum knows that because it's more than obvious, and it's more than annoying... nothing personal, but everything has its toleration limits.

You can now degrade and negate this statement in multiple ways, but the truth stays, and you know it.
