Good stuff Dave. About how much does a process such as that decrease the efficiency? Im only working with ~3W to power my FE207s.

With the added mass some efficiency is lost (usually on the order of 1/3-1/2 dB, maybe a bit more on the bigger drivers). But downward dynamic range is improved more than making up the difference.

And a customer's set of FF165KeN out of a set of Super Abbey's in a more conservative scheme:

I've been too busy to keep checking in on this forum, but I am very happy to see the colourful drivers! Lots of ideas spring to mind.

One of my favourite experiments, my personal FE126eN until they met an untimely end at this year's diyFEST

Click the image to open in full size.

The most popular colour scheme Natural with Brown modeled by an FE127eN

And a variation on the second most popular Natural with Black, with a contrasting dustcap (experimental FE126En)
