Which should include all of the practise needed to achieve a product worth selling.

I would have to more than double the amount of surcharge over stock to get the (relatively small) amount i get paid for doing work for my clients in non-audio disciplines. I do it for the love of the hobby.

Giving away your knowledge and expertise is a curious way to create a goldmine. Everything you need to know to enable your own speakers is contained in this thread given FREELY by those who have spent many many hours developing it, including patterns for specific drivers that can be downloaded FOR FREE! Yes, they will enable your speakers for a fee if that's what you want but given the amount of time it takes and the amount of time that was spent to develop the skill to do the fine work produced, it is IMO a very reasonable charge and certainly no get rich plan. Some people!

hence that makes this ongoing drivel "technical" I guess, eh?

Technically, I think what should be done is, except comparing a raw driver with an “enabled” one, to compare the second one with another that has been treated with the same amount of material (paint?) in the same circumference but with a radically different pattern (perhaps with just a few straight lines). Perhaps next week I will be able to perform such experimentation, trying to measure what is happening bellow the -30dB barrier (I have a feeling that if differences are to be found, it is there that they will most likely manifest themselves). Btw, is Blanco eraser a suggested substance for this treatment?

no no no no Tux, we don't have to know anything, we just splash some stuff on a speaker, club one of the conveniently circling sycophants into temporary stupidity and pass off our 1st grade art work as the very height of invention, class, social mobility, and coolth....way better than broccoli. Lots more money and we don't have to deal with digging in the dirt either.

thalis,

If you are actually interested in looking into this, please come over to this thread.

EnABL - Listening impressions & techniques - diyAudio

We will teach you how to do the very best job we know how to do and even treat you like an adult we have respect for. Then you can go off on any and all tangents you like, though you should probably be aware of this one too.

EnABL Processes large blocks and dots applied

Be happy to discuss whatever you want to discuss.

Bud

** Listening impressions***???? How about **Parameter changes and measurements***
But that wont happen..........My *Impression* is that this is pure snake oil..........but to measure, I would have to hack into someones bank account.
