Hello,


This new project is welcomed. It's good to see new designers entering the market.

Thanks for the detailed measurements, but with relatively high Q peaks in the consonant and especially in the sibilance BWs, at USA pricing these would have to be addressed before I would want to spend any quality time with them.
I tend to agree with GM on this, however we will have to wait for the first reviews to see how the frequency response translates in subjective terms. I have a feeling that it might sound similar to B200.

By the way, very nice pictures. May I ask what's the surround made of? It's transparent, am I right? Is that mylar or something?

HighVividity, good luck with your project!

Thank you. I will let him know your comments. I am reading N.W.Mclachlan's book "loudspeaker" and to my amateur eyes, he may be able to add more damping to his cone.

Thank you! But his is not my project, it is L CAO's, who is in China. I am in Ohio and merely want best full range drivers on market to be less expensive.

L CAO once said the surround was paper itself. It is semi-transparent because of its thickness. I will ask him to see whether he changed the surround, because on the photo it does not look like paper.

Well he confirmed that it was paper, thin and coated with gluey material for damping purpose.

L CAO lives in Zhongshan, which is very close to Guangzhou. I have messaged him. Once he replies with his email, I will give it to you.

hi,


would these work on open baffles? I have tried visaton b200 and didn't like the sound. Bass is augmented with 15 inch woofers

L CAO said yes. But there is no independent review on this setting as far as I know.
