Dave, are these the Hawthorne Audio Coaxials in post #22?
If so, did EnABL'ing them yield as many benefits as with other drivers?

Yes.

But there was more work than just EnABL. These drivers are not very well built (sloppy) and the 15" has a lot of resonances in at least the top 2 octaves of its range. I was able to clean up some of them and was able to reduce the resonances.

They are in The Netherlands now, and the owner thinks they are a big improvement. From some of the questions asked after, i'm gonna guess that he learned to EnABL himself so that he could do his other (5?) SIs (he also has a set of Augies (a much better driver thn the coax) that i treated as well)

Some people really like this driver and i can understand the appeal, but i'm not a fan. Something like MJKs passive OB does the same things and a lot better.

And mounted in the complementary box they were done for. The drivers aren't quite as subtle as i was aiming for, but such is R&D.

Dave,

The pictures are excellent, but I'm starting to see spots. I better get my eyes checked.


Best Regards,
Terry
