Question SEAS alum cones & little fingers...

Hello,

How sensitive are alum cones to little finger's prying (compared to paper)?

And you opinion pls on how does SEAS alum compare to SEAS paper.

Thanks,

Al cones are more damage proof than their paper counterparts. Dust caps and various suspension parts are as far as I can tell, identical. Having said that.... the Al cones are more expensive to replace once damaged.

Three kids, no problems... taught them while they were very young to leave some things alone. When my daughter was three, she would come into the machine shop at work and promptly put on her safety glasses.

Getting little ones enviornment proof, as opposed to making the environment kid proof can be done... it just takes lots more work from the adults.

Not hardly!

I ran a machine shop and was forced at times to have children with me, while the machinery was making chips. Had to find a way for the 16 foot planer to not eat them.

Children and machinery / electronics are not mutually exclusive. Mixing them does howerver take time.

I'm a rubbish father- Red Chief took out two DT101 titanium tweeters in 5 seconds flat this past weekend. I can attest that they do not sound as good in their new inverted dome configuration...

When one is a father, teching kids is part of the duty.

But a grandfather, you know...

Looks like paper cones are the way to go...

I have a pair of Scan Speak 2010 tweeters that were popped back (but not the same anymore) after a friend of my kid's pushed the domes in.
