Anyone tried the new version of the 8545?

Haven't tried the new one but, the old one was phenomenal!

I used them in a two way tuned to 32 hz with a 9300 Scan Speak tweeter crossed at 2KHz.

One of the best sounding speakers I have heard. It had decent output at 30 hz. For a 7" driver, it was impressive for the 1990's. Only needed a sub for HT. No problem with music and this system could play loud with low distortion with a good powerful amp.

I may build them again, now that they are available again. I would bi-amp them this time.

Now that the cone is coated, I'm wondering if it will collect dust? I'm told it's not as sticky as the coated 15Ws though.
