Default Dayton ps220?

Hay Dave, I've been playing with the Dayton ps220... looks and sounds really good so far. Have you thought about doing EnaBl on this driver?

Aside from the sonic benefits, what treatment colors do you think could work well with the basic gray cone like the Dayton's?

Merry Christmas, and awaiting your reply!

For those of us that live in the Pacific Northwest, Grey "is" the basic color of our existance.

Looking at a grey cone is like peering through a porthole into our whole world, who would want to change that?


Best Regards,

Merry Christmas Terry
Chris,

If you venture to journey up the treacherous, winding mountain path to Castle Dlugos, you will eventually end up above all the clouds and fog that continuously choke the lowlands of your Island.


BTW: I hope that your Christmas was a very Merry one!

Best Regards,
TerryO

I have thot about it, but with the current backlog of trial drivers (SEAS, Scanspeak, Audio Nirvana, Eminence ...) and not being able to keep ahead on the regular items, they await someone to special order some (you'll have mail)

Grey cones i usually take to black, adding any sort of colour just adds a tone to the grey (something brownish to make them techno-punkish might work). A standard EL70 is a good example of the standard grey cone treatment. Grey spots are standard, but i have done myself a pair with goldish spots and did up both the Eminence & Iris coaxs with whote spots. A set of B20 with dark blue spots was, IMO, not the best choice of spot colour.

Default Stretching

A pair of glow in the dark FF85wKeN (actually black light). These are for Bernie's solid locust uFonkenSET (locust also reacts/glows under the black light). In daylight the spots are almost invisible.
