Default Any opinions on Neo-fone driver?

I followed a link from one of the sponsors of this site (DIY HiFi Supply) and saw they were advertising a speaker driver called "Neo-fone". I can't seem to find any information on it anywhere - perhaps is too new. Just wanted to know if anyone knows anything.

I don't know it, but the T/S parameters and the F/R graph suggest it has potential. Not the cheapest unit on Earth though.

Hi,

I ordered a pair and it arrived last Friday. They still remain in their packages because my time is limited right now. They look quite good but I'm not so sure they are real fullrange..... I'll keep you updated.

After tax & customs one pair is 150 Euro here in Germany - not the cheapest compared to a pair of FE127e or FE167e.

Regards
Thorsten

150e/pair is not so bad. Thorsten, did you order those from the Diy Hifi Supply site?

Its not to be negative and it really looks like worth a try, but I think that FR curve shows that it kind of "gives up" around 5khz and what we see up to about 10khz could be some very well controlled "spikes" - but only listening test will tell

Hello,

I orderd directly at "DIYHifiSupply" - it's quite easy with PayPal.

The frequency plot: well, to be honest - it looks a bit "painted" for me. We'll see how plot and reality match....

Regards
Thorsten

35 to 16khz..
They don't claim it is a full ranger. They call it a wide ranger. Brian Cherry suggest to me that it can be used as a full ranger without the listener wanting for highs. Let's face it ..the 40+ old farts can't hear above 16kHz anyway

I'm wondering if this could be a better choice for my next project than the FR125S. Maybe I'll wait a while and see what people think about this.

16Khz in real world listening situations is pretty darn good user- friendly treble. It is going to be down to how it Sounds.

I must say that spec-wise, on the surface, it looks like another very worthy candidate for the BIB database, once and if it is determined, perhaps by Thorsten, that it is worth building up into the bigger cab. Just my $.02. ..Mysterious lack of Xmax spec...

@Landroval: FR125S is a great driver - I like it very much. Here in Germany he is cheaper than the Neo's (even with the attached notch filters). German magazin "HobbyHifi" tested him up to 30000Hz.

We'll see how the Neo's play in the recommended 10 liters reflex cab ....

Regards
Thorsten
