Default Adire HE 12.1

I was interested in this design, it looks really nice. Now the woofer is an Eminence beta 12cx, right? But what is the horn they use? Anything i should know?

As far as I know it is similar or identical to an Eminence APT-50 compression driver.

Just finished redesigning the crossover around an upgraded compression driver (still unique). This compression driver has a bit flatter top end, and the decay is a lot faster - better doping of the dome, as well as a new single-piece face and throat.

Will this be part of a general upgrade to the HEx.x line? If so, is there an ETA that you can share?

Just curious...

See dan, i heard there is no difference from the peerless tweeter and the "koda" tweeter. I wanted to see if i could save some money by just using eminence drivers, and making the crossover. So please inform me.

John,

Yes, it will be available in the HE10.1 and HE12.1. We're re-evaluating the position of the HE8.1.

BHG,

We have a different dome backing, different grade of ferrofluid, and different sized phase plug. It's subtle, but there are pretty good differences. So many people look at the outside of a box/driver and say "it's the same!", when in reality what really matters in a driver is completely hidden from view...

Dan,

I'm interested in the HE10 - is it better to remove the dustcap?

I don't know if Dan still hangs around here, but if so - can you give any status on the rumored (and kinda-sorta confirmed by you at RMAF) XBL^2 versions of the Beat coax drivers?

I have been eyeing the HE10s, but dont' want to jump in if the upgraded version is just around the corner.

XBL HE10?!
yes please!

I'm not sure how much it would improve however, since they are already probably very linear and only have to deal with an xmax of 3mm. I think they are best used with subs.
