We have actually only worked with another manufacturers, so the PlyBoo might be a bit different, but we find that if you are not really careful with it, it warps. Chris can say more.

Thats funny that someone mentions this brand. My buddy who is living in china pointed me at this company noting that they had used the frame I used in the last prototype for my 7" project. (The taiwan firm I was working with went under and had their assets acquired.)
It is rather odd but I talked directly with the frame die manufacturer and apparently its proprietary so I can't just buy the frames directly (from them at least) -- its funny how things circulate around the region...

One of the units with the old frame has a wood cone, I've inquired if I could get a cone made with balsa as the material and I'll hear back in a little while.

I'm expecting better results with balsa, particularly if its a composite. Theres the chance it will provide decent wideband performance without sacrificing its ability to be used as a traditional midwoofer.
