If it's what it says it is, that should be really something. Price is high, but not as high as (true) beryllium

It says is better than "metal" diaphragms.

Hopefully we will see other compression driver manufacturers "step-up".

I'd like to see one from 18 Sound (..though I wonder if all their talent was absorbed by B&C).

It would seem to be speculation at the moment. I'd like to wait and see.

Looks like Eminence has been working on this for awhile.
New High-Performance Cone and Diaphragm Technology | audioXpress
Article mentions a 3" compression driver in the examples.

This really does look like a nice development in value for large format compression drivers. You can get two for less than the price of a Radian.

Eminence isn't one for hyperbole. The standard version measures well in comparison to the competition and is fairly inexpensive for its category. Their new Tour Grade woofers also compare nicely to the best Italian drivers.
