I saw a recommendation for a replacement driver for the single sheet TH.
I have been following the thread and have had time to assess the credibility of the Members posting here.
I decided to buy based on (in my view) a credible recomendation. I don't need PA levels for large audience.
Your post does seem to me harassment. But I sometimes write my post in a manner that appear show disrespect. I regret that. I hope I don't challenge.

How can you state "I'm sure ................. won't have taken it the wrong way" ?

That's supposed to mean big Dunce. I on my way to deciding on that view, but I can await your reply before reaching a conclusion.

I can justify my own decisions, but I do not read your post as looking for my logic in arriving at my decision to purchase. I read it as a criticism for buying without knowing. The tone in the question gave me that impression.

edit,
I have done a quick head count and estimate that >90% of the speakers I have had or still have were bought without knowing the T/S
If I go on to include the cone speakers in the PCs and portable radios and alrams etc, I suspect the unknown T/S proportion rises to >99%

the forum shutdown prevented me from editing my previous post.
What is this message about "overnight"?
It's 1000hrs and now moving to 1034hrs when I discover the system lost my message again again again !!

Default DAP audio driver

I actually tried to get hold of one of these. Took the wholesaler months to ship it to my musician's shop, by which time I had bought eminence...

Did you get it reasonably quickly?

Regards, Ben

That's fine, obviously i wasn't aware of that, as you didn't mention it in the post.

Quote:

I really do not see how anyone could come to that conclusion, based on my asking a straightforward question ? As i've already said, if anyone asked me the same question, i wouldn't hesitate in explaining, or think Anything untoward either.

I didn't notice Any disrespect, & there was NONE given or intended on my part ! And there's nothing wrong in challenging opinions etc, that's how we can learn & progress etc

Quote:

Because i expected you would take my post exactly as written, without interpreting it into something i didn't write or mean. Plus due to several recent friendly PM's we exchanged.

Quote:

I'm sure you can, and i didn't say otherwise.

Quote:

That's good to hear

Quote:

You did buy without Actually knowing. That's not criticism, it's a fact.

Quote:
The tone in the question gave me that impression.
All i said was that i was "just curious ..." I didn't imply or state Anything else. I'm sorry if you & anyone else misinterpreted Exactly what i wrote, but in Only wrote what i did & nothing else.

If someone, not me as it wouldn't even cross my mind, were to have said for eg: Hey dude wutz up with shelling out da $'s when you don't got no info on da stuff, you're a clutz. Or words to that effect. Then that would we both harassment & criticism !

Quote:

Different strokes (pun intended) for different folks. From what you said, that means that you don't start off with a fixed box design/size etc in mind, for >90% of the time.

Quote:

Well they aren't as critical to the outcome compared to Home/PA etc criteria IMO.

Regards,

Zero D

Balderdash.
I don't accept any of your justification.
I do accept that you did not intend to harass.
Let's leave it at that.

The general rule for this Forum is no personal attacks.
It took me a while to adjust to both sides of that. Some can never stop themselves from making personal and racial attacks and yet we rarely see any action being taken to restrain them. I intervene and remind folk: This is basically a technical Forum that generally discusses technicalities.
That's probably why I sometimes get criticised for adopting a policeman's hat.

Default And now for the bit we've all been waiting for...

AndrewT - when you've got it installed, please let us know if speaker is doing its job

I'm guessing it'll go to about 3 dB less than the 3015LF due it's lower xmax. I am especially interested because where I am DAP audio isn't regarded too kindly by most audio professionals, and I almost bought the thing once already

Regards, Ben

It is likely to be quite a long time till I actually use these drivers.
But I do intend to test them fairly soon.
I still have my Lower Bass 2/3rds Pi Horn to finish and then set up.

Then I can start comparisons of Lower Bass performance between Vented, TH and Horn.
