I don't know if there's enough traffic to support a separate section, but we'll look into it.

Bose but no Acoustat. Hmpf!

Why a separate section, especially with so many sub categories?
You can discuss all of that in the general forums, and we don't like to split things up too much because then there is less cross polination of ideas.

Rice-Kellogg, isn't that a breakfast cereal?

:edit: Well the boss got here first, and his word is law, so we will look into it...

Well, it's a matter of traffic versus limited programming resources. Looking through the archives, there are lots of discussions about these veterans, but not the sort of broad and continuous discussion that falls under, say, "subwoofers." I think you can use the Search feature to do what you want (that's how I researched past threads on a couple of the ones you mentioned).

I can tell you outright that this won't be happening in the near future. Please just use the main loudspeaker forum.

At least not as is outlined in this thread.

OK well thanks anyway for considering the suggestion. Just to clarify, the intent was more of a reference section where crossover schematics, T&S driver parameters, plans for cloning out of production designs and so on could be kept so I didn't expect it to detract from the main Loudspeaker section.

That is the kind of thing that is perfect for the Wiki...

I added a vintage section and added a couple appropriate links
