IIRC it was titanium, aluminum and fairly thick pulped paper.

back to the regularly scheduled programme
Chris while at first glance your POV would seem a quite logical one to put forth, I believe another POV that's equally as valid is to propose the Walsh driver which Lincoln Walsh originally applied for a patent in 1964 and later received said patent in 1969, has under almost 50 years worth of technical advances in driver manufacture since it's original conception, been throughly examined and been found wanting "as-is".

I believe my alternate POV would seem to gain even further validity & credibilty when one looks to the much more recent version of the Walsh drivers Peter Dicks developed and later licensed to a medium sized German company called Mainhattan Acustik that was owned by Holger Mueller. This improved version of the Walsh driver is made completely from either a titanium or a carbon cone ---{which is similar to Sonodyne in that both companies use all one type of cone material}--- and they routinely receives accolades for the quality of their speaker's sonics under their new company name German Physiks!

Chris just a different POV, not necessarily the correct one!

audio, what audio?


or was it just a La Leche League training film - not quite as salacious as you'd hope?
