Hi Guys,
This work is at a very early stage. We're some way off a workable per-production prototype. I will do my best to post more information over the coming weeks/months, hoping to gauge the level of support for future driver development.

Thanks
Mark.

Hi Chris,
I think you're referring to the CHR-Alnic test unit. Its got a weak strength motor, hence the very limited impedance output.

The Alpair 6P Neo had a quick listen (already commented in that thread)

Thanks
Mark.

They are full ranges, not woofers or subwoofers so considerably less expensive since so much neo is not needed or desired.

In theory, I've heard neo "can" improve high frequencies so worth looking into. Might do the trick with the A10 and 12P since the larger drivers would embrace any additional treble response.

No stone left unturned with Mark--should be educational to see how this plays out.
Hi 18,
Neo is mostly used on small drivers where space saving is critical. Due to its cost, its rarely used on larger units.

Thanks
Mark
