these drivers seem optimized for the midrange even with that much excursion capability.

Perhaps it's a good sign that he's not spending all the valuable time
on the internet rather, staying in the shop building product. Because
he doesn't visit frequently doesn't mean progress is not being made.

ie, I've been cooking up a crazy speaker design for years and
I don't spam my idea on the forum daily

All in good time

Yes, its best to post when you've actually got something to show.

If I were noob and it was a commercial product I was trying to market, then I'd definitely have waited until there was data, measurements and a finished product before showing it.

On the other hand, over time the DIY community develops a
relationship as people become 'friends' and there is nothing
wrong with expressing ideas and showing sneak peaks of
projects in the works. It's called 'trust'. I trust that people
won't mock the idea and you also trust that the claims made
are sincere. Perhaps during the development phase, the product
could be better when the idea is posted and feedback is made,
ie., during the orginally conceptual design of the 6" midwoofer,
I gave him my 2 cents on what I want from a driver, the wishlist
was made.

I would caution those with interest to at least read through this thread before making conclusions based on the presented info. I don't have a dog in the fight, but sometimes it's nice to know what kind of background these things are coming from.

I found it enlightening... and more than a little amusing.

OMG this is the funniest thing I've read in a long time...

I almost fell out of my chair at work when they started arguing about resistance of wire of different gauges ....

Reminds me of little kids in a sandbox...

[EDIT] Just got to page 8 where Dan Wiggins finds pictures of AudiophileNoob/Feandil and posts links.. OMG even if you enver had a run in with NOOB you gotta read this thread...

There was some discussion and a test unit was going to be sent to me, but it never happened.

At this point, I can say I'm not interested. I've got enough test drivers on my plate from real, established companies.

oh, the classic Dan vs. [whomever] debate in the car audio
world, yep... I've seen many of those over the years and
I got to the point where I'm not interested in what is spoken
because there more than meets the eye.

I've been following the unfolding of the drama for months
as we exchange emails once in a while, moreso then, but less
now. I get the impression that he is busy with his DIY driver
project, not only DIY but OEM. I think he has too much on his
plate and is bombarded with projects and it may be catching
up with him. Too many goals and not enough time. I don't fault
him for being ambitious to create drivers from scratch, even
creating his own custom baskets in house, the amount of work
he needs to can drive one crazy. The attempt is sincere though
and even if there is delays, I still wait patiently to see what
product is handcrafted.

One example is Lambda Acoustics, I think it was a 4 year venture,
Nick worked like a dog to make his handcrafted woofers special.
I waited 1.5 years to get his Apollo drivers, lots of them.. In the
end I have a masterpiece which is now a rare driver unless you
have John @ AE tool an Apollo for you at a higher cost.
He took over the Lambda line when Nick called it quits.

So.. sometimes there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
if you wait
