Thanks to John Krutke for doing the response graphs that led me to this very nice little driver.

Even though you call them "test boxes" it looks nice enough to me..


How do they sound compared to the 871, looks like they have more bass?

keep 'em comimg Tim

I like the diamond orientation of the driver -- did you borrow that idea from Scott (i'm sure it was used before that -- i'm sure i used it before that --but pictures of Scott's stick in my brain)

Thanks. Yes they do have more bass, a lot more. 5mm Xmax! Very smooth and easy to listen to. My initial reaction was that they don't have the same top end as the 871 but it's not missing much. I've thought about a super tweeter but for most listening they're fine.

Thanks Dave. It was a combination of things. When I discovered the terminals are at one of the points of the frame I remembered seeing Scott's diamond mounting so it seemed the right thing to do.

Aha! So you're a southpaw!

Kidding aside, nice job! Is the diamond mounting to reduce diffraction effects, or just for looks? I assume you didn't bother recessing the frame...

Very nice! Love the orientation, and I normally hate those frames. Did you put in any BSC?

Thanks. Just for looks. No recess for the flat pin frame. It might be nice to put some type of diffraction ring around it though.

Thank you. Nope, no BSC. I tuned the cab to have a slight rise toward the low end so it's very full sounding. It's nice to get away with a mechanical solution when possible.

Oh yeah, one more thing about the mounting position. That's the way the mounting is shown in the Aura spec sheet too.
