BAM said:The new woofer for DirectServo kits is made by AE Speakers. I can personally speak to the quality of AE Speakers woofers and their impeccable attention to aesthetics as well. The dark gray anodized single-piece aluminum cone makes for an extremely nice-looking driver.
BAM said:I had a discussion some time back with John about what he was workingon, and he said he was pursuing some possible production contracts with Rythmik Audio and ACI. I saw the new Rhythmik woofer and made the leap. In a later conversation with John I learned that the Rythmik guy wanted a certain voice coil length that wouldn't have worked well for his application. then the Rhythmik guy decided he wasn't going to mess with AE and had TC Sound build the woofer. It was kind of a stupid thing, really, since the voice coil length would really have to be what the Rhythmik guy specified so that the motion sensing coil would interact properly with the magnetic gap for limiting functions, whichwas a bad move on John's part
