The CD1.5NR1 may not be the best choice but CD1.5NR1P (PEN diaphragm) looks very clean, at least based on impedance in datasheet. I'm tempted to try this one out but the last thing I need are more compression drivers...

I expect goosebumps from seeing the price tag Carbon diaphragm sounds interesting.

I think I'll be in Prague in June, it might be fun to see if anyone else wants to meet up and talk shop.

I'm taking the fam on a Mediterranean cruise but I'll probably do a detour to Prague because it's one of my favorite cities.

I fully agree about Prague. Been there three times, I love it. My advisor was also from Prague.

I'd love to join you, but I just don't know what this summer will bring. I'll be in Madrid the end of the month though!

PS: Interesting catch on the driver material. That's new to me.

Prague isn't called the "Golden City" for nothing

Madrid is definitely also worth a visit, it's where my best buddy lives and works.
Compared to a miniature zoo, such as Amsterdam, the pace of life there is very relaxed.
Be sure to visit one of the many museums. If you don't feel like going to the big Prado, I recommend
Museo Reina Sofía, which hosts Picasso's Guernica.


Some pics of the Eminence "Be Killer", which is expected to be sold for around € 340 each.

During one of my visits, I went to see "Guernica" in the evening (free entrance). I walked straight to the room and was alone with the painting for about 10 minutes ... A transcedental experience.

Since you are interested in glass, I guess this is a "must see" as well:

Here's another driver with 2.5" VC, albeit with PEEK instead of PEN diaphragm.
This Chinese brand isn't well known in the Western world, but at least Crescendo thinks the huge Carbon cone drivers (up to 80") are good enough for their (ultra) expensive subs.

The driver is available at a number of Ukrainian stores for less than € 100.
