Maybe slightly OT, -but still - out of curiosity..
is it possible to reveal what units were used in the now discontinued Rushmore.....?
( something may have been posted here before, but that did escape my attention..)

-Well, actually (being serious) I believe the Revelators are better than the Seas-units.

very interesting thoughts. being in audio and spending some seriuos time(7000hours or so)on listening and tested all posible(open to individual customers) and imposible(open only for OEM manufacturers) i can say few words about seas vs scan speak

after 2002-2003 years SS assembling quality went down quite a bit,also glue they using is very fine to work with(it takes about 18seconds to fully dismount surround and spider from basket) but has lot of flaws on excursion,sometimes deatach.
speaking about the sound of scan speak woofers almost ANY stock scan speak paper6.5inch midwoofers (from 1980 to 2009 18w iluminators) sound somewhat "calm", "warm and rich in timbre"(lots of low order HD). bass qty is one of the best in its class.

some seas midwoofes sounds opozite -quite lively at low levels,

scan speak manufacture what people want -lot of bass from small size. however they make MANY (scan speak have about 400diferent 6.5inch drivers on they clasic , revelator and iluminator base with exotic hybrid cones, 18w revelators which goes upt to 14khz and so on) really very diferent sounding drivers which is very opozite to stock scan speaks. some of OEM drivers have for example 96-98db/2.83v/m sensitivity (while stock units will fit in 86-88db/w/m range)


its not the best idea to start speaker with drivers.or with box. the best thing is start from.. xover. sounds crazy but knowing topology you can choose drivers which behaves what you want and will help you implement your vision of true sound.

wow... away for a few days and people start posting...lol

another reason why I ask, is that I know nelson gets cool new stuff thrown his way... I'm sure some are great... and I'm sure some are not so great...

I also figured Nelson would have played with AT drivers... for whatever reason when ever I see or play with AT I alsways think what they would sound like on some PASS amps

Like a monkey in a cage, I'll play with whatever people toss in.

Lacking that, I have to play with myself...

Default Ill luminators...

By the way, don't count the Illuminators in, as one the drivers I'm promoting. I'm afraid they look better than they sound. - They sure look good, though.
