No worries, it's EnAbLeD now! Just ask her to do the other one!

And Chris, I'm with you on the day dream. Ali Larter, especially. She was the best (only) reason to watch Heroes.

What makes you think that touching the cone is limited to children? I know a lot of audiophiles that think they MUST tap on exposed driver cones. They don't know why. I guess is like the lemmings running over the cliff.

Or maybe it's just that audiophiles never grew up.

My daughter did the same thing with two drivers - I had just brought the first set in the house and before I could get the second one it, she dented the dustcap on the midbass and destroyed the tweeter...

A friend of mine was over the other day and for some reason he felt the need to prod one of my EL70 cones. He wasn't particularly gentle about it. The hair on the back of my heck stood on end and I could feel my face become quite hot. I really should have said something, but I have learned not to speak when I have those physical sensations. It is impossible for someone to fail to notice my anger in such situations.

So I just took a huge gulp of ale and smiled.
