The 3rd link says $1200 for the 15" coax! Wow! Out of my league.

Smile HEMP Coaxials

Hi everybody,
Someone just sent me this thread, so figure I would step up to the plate on a couple of things..First and foremost as It says on our website, we appreciate everyones patience with our growth,,but we getting there and its going very well indeed..

Now on to the show.
In regards to the Coaxials, our goal here was to put together a top of the line product, period! We and the many others that were involved in the development cycle and our new OEMs that are developing products around some of our models all seem to agree that our goals were met and then some.. but I am afraid that creating somthing in this caliber simply costs some money.. mind you that said..

The designs are first rate using only the finest materials and each of them employ mulipal propretory technologies. They easily out perform anything the likes of Tannoy and Altec have to offer and some have said they even out do TAD and Ale and the super stratospheric priced audio object d'art..

So considoring the prices of the line from 475.00-1200.00 for what you get, we honestly feel they offer high value. We hope that you get the oppertunity to try them for yourself..

Like always, we with fond wishes and thanks.

Hemp Acoustics..

Default Hemp acoustics Co15V

I have a lovely pair of the CO15V Hemp Acoustics 15 inch coaxial drivers in my rear loaded corner horns. I will say they do no wrong! They are bar none the best coaxial driver I have tryed or owned. I have been working on my horn designs for 12 years and tried as many 15inch coaxial drivers as I can afford and have made huge 4way horn systems for reference. I think, after what I have made and gone through, if I had the Hemp driver in the first place I could have saved a fortune. I think in terms of cost and sound quality it should cost double the asking price.
I have one of the first ones made i think, using the hemp matrix cone. The cone matirial is very light and the sound is very fast with a low Fc in my horn of 22.7 hz the lowbass is full fast and smooth,the mid bass is vibrant and alive (Peter Gabiel's No way out comes to mind) the high end is flawless imaging is perfect.
I am using these in a normal family room 12.6 feet by 18 feet and they are 18 feet apart and they image perfectly in stereo no sub no center chanel but yet they have wrap around imaging. and with the point soarce they are as time coherent as is possible. I have full test results if any one wants, I can send you the graghs.

From your pdf files it looks like the 8" and 12VOB have the same horn and the 12V and 15" have a different horn. Can you tell us anything about these differences? From the FR graphs it looks like the larger drivers are quite a bit better.

A Vanderkruk,

i'd like to see some graphs
