It was mentioned that the whole Satori line will be available as the TX version. Regarding Eminence, no idea.

Of course- 5th and I meant Eminence, and we knew SB was doing it already.

Well yeah but 'acoustical figure of merit' is a whole new level of marketing BS which I did not expect from a company that is serving the pro market.

Probably wouldn't have batted an eyelid if that horse manure would have come from SB rather than Eminence.

Having worked in engineering for 30 years, I can read between the lines and guess what "acoustical figure of merit" might mean...

The engineers at Eminence came up with a way of ranking diaphragm materials based on a number of attributes. this ranking method probably distilled all these attributes down into a single ranking number... which they coined as an "acoustical figure of merit"...

The marketing people, upon hearing the engineers talk about how Textreme has an incredibly high "acoustical figure of merit", foamed at the mouth and wet themselves... they then pushed these words into their marketing material... probably without the knowledge of the engineering folks.

I have seen this playbook many times...

6.1 Definition of figure of merit

A figure of merit is a quantity used to characterize the performance of a device, system or method, relative to its alternatives. In engineering, figures of merit are often defined for particular materials or devices in order to determine their relative utility for an application. In commerce, such figures are often used as a marketing tool to convince consumers to choose a particular brand.

Any information about SB tweeters made from Textreme? It would be cool to see the SB29B motor assembly with a textreme dome instead of the beryllium.

I wonder about the dip, internal reflection perhaps ?
