Interesting, and speaking of ceramics, I've been wondering about Zirconia Toughened Alumina (ZTA) diaphrams. This material features some desirable properties, notably a Young's Modulus of >300 (GPa) at a slightly lower density than Titanium.

Then what's the holdup? I mean it's just a matter of size and if too big, truncate it and make a [4] driver throat adapter, once a huge challenge, but judging by some the horn designs being pumped out lately, surely the program[s] can sim, 3D model make adapters like the pioneers likely couldn't even envision.

Do I need 4? Maybe 2 will work? I’m not going to pretend I know the challenge of designing this, or tuning it but where there’s a will there’s a way. If I could get the 15m the Axi and another driver to play super tweet, to come out of the same polar axis, like a unity, that’d be something. If I could get down there with 2 axis on one horn,, that’d be something

I have SB17CAC, 6.5'' woofer and SB26CDC, both have ceramic cone sandwich. And maybe it would cover from 35Hz to 20k at low SPL.

Ok here’s a good question, I think.
Where does wall, corner, and floor loading fit in the spectrum of time domain performance. Potentially Sealed is the best performing in this area because the sound isn’t coming from 2 sources like a port and driver. Outside of that how does plane loading perform. I read that keeping a front facing port within 3 inches of the ground cause a strong loading affect. Looking at the ariels a down firing port is executed. I tend to favor front firing as being more accurate but an I mistaken?
