Best of two worlds? (At least in theory)


/Jacozz
as Dave notes, Aura has done that (I've probably heard these, but can't specifically remember)

some folks are experimenting with sandwiches of different paper types (Fostex), or very esoteric paper compositions and fabrication techniques ( Feastrex, Lowther, Voxativ, SEAS, etc) to achieve some of the same goals that you're probably theorizing,

and then there's Mark's own MAOP experiments


"best" is a subjective and moving target

Well ok, that's fine. and worth looking in to.
My original idea was like that, instead of just listen to DIY community with all our different suggestions of how the perfect driver should be, instead Mark should focus the opitimization of a small(er) parameter of goals.

You can't please everyone, better to best in some area than, (in worst case) be average in all areas.

So. Personally would like Mark to focus his strengths instead of try to please everyone in the DIY community.

Of course, there is a balance here. But if I would give Mark an advice in this matter, it would be to believe in his original idea and stick with it.

No matter what.

as long as he's able to filter through the noise and second guessing on various the fora (including my own ), we can probably trust he will

You are probably right Crisb.
shooot, I never even heard a Mark Audio driver, so who am I to judge?
What I'm trying to say, is that I don't believe in "focus groups" (Hollywood style), I am a believer of the mindset; go with the gut feeling and original idea, instead of trying to please everyone.

But, maybe, there is no bearing to my reasoning?

All well, no hard feelings.
