They look good, especially considering that you're using a very expanded vertical scale. Everything seems to go south below 600hz though
If I get a lot of variation in my pair of slims, Ill probably be sending them back. Sadly, my pair of BG Neo 10's had variations that were just too hard to live with(I may have damaged one). My BG neo 3's are fine though. If need be, I can take these up to 800hz with an 8th. I could live with that if it means better consistency
I damaged a few of my first set with too many rounds of solder/desolder. Units developed quiet wide variations btw themselves after originally being almost identical. I'm an expert level solder jockey too, so I was surprised, but when I called BG and talked with Chris Brunhaver, he explained how easy it was to deform the diaphragm material with too much heat. On the second set, I only ever used crimp on terminals to attach the speaker wires and the units have remained very consistent freq response over about 5 years now.

Word to wise. Using any of the planar drivers, DO NOT SOLDER.

Chris is now with PS Audio and working on revisions of their forthcoming (any century now) speaker line. Current versions are using a modified version of the Neo10/Neo3 coaxial design like in the BG Z62 center channel.

I've been following Chris's work with PS Audio for, like you said, a century now.
