Lightbulb Aura 3"...phase plug?

The relatively new Aura 3" drivers with the smooth cone (NS3 something? )

Wouldn't there be the same nastiness inside the voice coil as with a driver with a dustcap?

Does anyone think you could improve the sound by cutting out the center of the cone and installing a 'phase' plug?

It would possibly spoil the looks, but ...

Every cone is going to have a soup can resonance in the void.... with its inverted cap, this resonance in the Aura is going to be pretty high.

High as in high frequency?

Yes, and therefore likely to be pretty well contained under an inverted dustcap.

Agreed. Also, it doesn't sit well with me to try and cut that cone. BTW, I got a package from you. I'll do some testing and let you know.

Now how about aesthetics? I don't personally, but does anyone think a plug of any sort could improve the looks of the cone? Probably only those who like the looks of pointy-centered drivers...
