As I have taken so much heat for in other threads, I believe that compression drivers are basically a commodity. The "good' ones are all pretty much the same. I liked the neo for its smaller profile and it is a lot lighter. As to break-up this is not really a problem in the 1" drivers and is vastly over rated as a problem in all drivers. Those who want to sell the more exotic diaphragms are responsible for that.

No, I have no experience with woofers under my speakers as I don't think that is a very good place for them. I don't think that there is much info on "counter force woofers" because it works just like a single one of double the area.

Thank you Earl for your terrific speakers. They sound excellent in my difficult room (L-shaped, 20m2). I would like to use a minidsp for active setup sometime in future. I own a DEQX unit but I dont suppose you are willing to adjust filters for that one so I will have to buy 4x10hd. Now I am in a process of building 4 subs. For that I will use a DEQX to delay Abbeys if necessary and a minidsp 2x4 to deal with subs' phase and delays. I can fully recommend these for anyone looking for well designed project instead of well advertised one.

Do you have distortion data on your loudspeaker systems?

I do not take standard "distortion" measurements on my systems. That is because it is well known that these measures do not correlate with perception, so what good would taking that data do? I am sure that these numbers are very low and I could, of course, use them just like everyone else to play the "specsmanship" game, but I prefer to show things that are meaningful, not useless.

JBL does not do distortion measurements anymore either. They have found the same thing - no relevance to sound quality.

I do believe that there is something to the aspect of loudspeakers called "dynamics" which may be associated with "distortion" and I am working on measurements of this aspect of loudspeakers as I write this. But as to THD or IMD, no, I will probably never do those kinds of measurements.
