Altec 414 from Great Plains Audio is the best sounding midrange I have ever had in my system. I'm running it from 100 hz to 850 hz.

Wow that looks nice!
Hey ScottG, any personal experience with that Neo10 thing?
Does it sound worlds better than accuton/atc/altec/whatev?

Only the Neo 8, not the 10.

It *can* sound better than accuton/atc/at/etc..

This depends on the design/implementation and the partnering equipment, and particularly the amplifier and crossover.

There are 2 others on this thread using the 10:

PHL1120, 300Hz to 2500Hz, a really good midrange, high sensitivity, less bass of audiotechnology (of course it doesn't do thaht...), less precise than Accuton but really more dynamic and expressive, a music maker!

I've measured and listened to a dozen other drivers over the last year in consideration for my project. From 3" - 8", paper, metal, nomex, carbon fiber, bamboo. I like the Neo10s best of all for my tastes and my application.

How exactly is a beryllium diaphragm a soft dome?

From what I recall, Accuton and AT drivers measure fairly well, but they aren't the best.
