Default Fertin vs Supravox

Hi!
I want to put all of you into a delicate situation.To choose from Fertin 20s or Supravox 215s bicone.All 8"drivers.
I want you to come with more details about these two superdrivers,compare them,frecvency response,linearity and sound and finally a note from 0 to 5.

Default Fertin vs Supravox

Well, I must say I am pretty intersted in this discusion too...
I am thinking at the same thing for a while, and I guess that Fertin would better the bicones in the upper frequencies (just because I know that wizzer cones are not that good)...

But again, maybe you should tell what cabinet are you going to use for them...for example I was thinking at an open baffle (wich nevertheless qualefies both of them because of the Qts..)

sorry, my mistake. I was thinking at another driver (the 165 from Supravox). The Fertin has a wizzer cone too. Back to the place we've started ...

Yes!
An OB I was thinking me to,but also on a Voigt or ML TQWT.
I have same opinion about the whizzer but seems Fertin is best in highs and sparkle,detail over Supravox.
Maybe he isn't?

Blackforest Audio have modified Fertins with higher Qts and different whizzer. The "Helix to Heaven" once got a very good test in a German magazine. They probably didn`t make this with the frequency response of the standard version you can see at Spectrumaudio. Maybe you can get FR graphs from Mr. Kühn.

I bought a pair of Fertins (20EX with all upgrades) in December, but didn't have time to install them yet. When I do, I will certainly post some comments.

They certainly know how to package them properly:

Given the fact they have large quantities of gold on them, do you think these will be at their best playing the Electric Light Orchestra's Mr Blue Sky?

Peter Daniel!
Do you think that improvements adds something new on the driver?
Do you listen Supravox,to compare them?

I have no idea if it adds any improvement, I was gambling here.
Never listened to Supravox either.
