black light only - just be sure to change your jammies before switching that on

just remembering some embarrassing fun from my psychodelia days of the late 60s(the "high" in secondary education) - 45yrs later it's easier to laff about it

back to regularly scheduled programing - what I found with Bernie's little locust cabinets was eyestrain from even short exposure to the black lights - an age thing I guess

I didn't try that... i now am using the black light as a night lite... but i can say that the bottle of the arycrilic used would glow without the aid of a blck light if charged up.

Default The 1st FF125wKeN

This new driver is starting to come off the bench.

The stock colour will be natural with grey spots (the camera makes the difference larger than the human eye diserns (at least my eye)):

Click the image to open in full size.

And one of the 1st experiments with "colour", black with dark grey spots -- again the camera sees a greater difference:

Spot colour for these is as yet undecided, but they show that some interesting cone colours will be possible:

What is the audible effect of the two pattern "end caps" on the center dome ridge?

Hi Bud,

It kills a tiny bit of HF ringing from the cap. found using taps, a very subtle change of tone as you tap thru the cone... the "ridged" dustcap behaves quite differently.

spoiler alert: that might well explain some of what I heard on my weekend listening session - mind you 5 different pairs of speakers in one afternoon might have been a bit overwhelming for an amateur

Oh right, amateur. Spoiler folks. Chris is not one of those sort, even though he knows how to adopt unassuming and quiet camouflage.....

Finally the first examples of the enabl'ed FFxxxWK series!
I was very interested to see how the ridged domes will treated.
I'm watching this corner closely as I have a pair of FF165wk mounted in a metronome, and I'm sure these could benefit from enabl treatment.
And since I haven't mastered the "art of the tap test" my only option is to follow other people's lead concerning ring placement.
Hoping to see the treatment on the FF165WKeN soon.
Regards
Nick
