So far I haven't figured out how to do it. The whole profile is very different for a different throat.

Example.

A midrange snappiness and 'paper' warmth? Now you've lost me. Do you mean it will sound more neutral? I don't know but I'd rather not discuss a sound of different cone materials here. I don't have much to add anyway.

There's not much to add because there is not much there. Over on another thread they are obsessing over THD and IMD measurements which have been proven to be completely unreliable aspects of a loudspeaker. I have better things to do than get into the depths of audio folklore and mysticism.

"Obsessing" might be overstating things a little.
Pano's comment concerning the BMS driver is pretty much supportive of your view.

Turk, why do you seem to get off on poking and prodding Dr. Geddes? I’ve been lurking these forums for many years and have never understood you and a certain other member from Toronto reason for doing so. It’s why I thought it was rich when you were earlier asking for ‘math to english translations’ in this thread. Sorry to others reading this to have called you out personally, but us DIY’ers are lucky to have an industry professional like Dr. Geddes share his knowledge on this forum. I’m certain that you know where he stands on these topics, and have for many years. This is unfortunately why most industry insiders stay away from these forums. Please stop.

I second that statement

gedlee 20th October 2019 04:28 PM

Me third!

Clear this up for me if you will, who are you referring to?

turk 182 21st October 2019 01:04 AM

Audio Elite is surely referring to me...
to BradH if pursuing a line of inquiry is viewed as "poking" or "prodding" my apologies, i must be mistaken in thinking my questions are fair and legitimate...
