Hi Buzz,
Good to hear from you. Arrrrr...... you've guessed what's brewing on the test bench. I've got something in mind. Feel free to send me an email

What amp have you in mind for the 12P?

Cheers
Mark.

if not, you might have just added another item to the Christmas wish list

it looks to me more like the current dust cap geometry of CHR series - maybe with magic pixie dust, oops, I mean MAOP ; that's a joke - from my limited understanding of the process, I've no doubt that the MAOP does some very special things

no doubt Mark will let us twist in the wind for a while yet

My money's still on a paper cone. We already have the MAOP A10 in white & charcoal, so evidently it's not that. Agreed, the dustcap on the unit in the picture does look like the CHR cap, or the old gen.1 A10. Either way, be interesting to see what happens. Assuming it's a widebander rather than a midbass, and it is a paper cone of some description, maybe another dB or so sensitivity over the metal cone unit; judging from prior form, I can't picture it sacrificing travel for efficiency. No doubt we'll find out in the fullness of time.

Mark, thank you for the overview. That sort of commentary is probably the most valuable to me as a buyer and it should be prominent and easy to access. Thanks again for all of your great work, I'm greatly enjoying my AP12s gen 1, in my octagon Mar-Ken boxes.
