What has been the most detailed driver you have worked with?
 
I'm curious what you guys have found to be the most detailed driver you have used?

Ah yes, there is something a bit special about them. I do wonder if maybe I shouldn't have sold mine. They just need to be treated very carefully with regard to their enclosure and I didn't give them enough room to breathe. They still produced incredible imaging though.

Well, looks like they are back in production again anyhow, can get new models from Madisound which are presumably identical to the originals.

My TI100 are 4" to like the audax I think it is a good diameter for open sounding mid-reproduction.

What exactly does that mean?? "detailed"??

Lowest distortion?
Widest bandwidth?
Flattest in band response??

Tip up the highs and people think it is "detailed".
Not much of a trick in that. Works most of the time.

The best single driver I have ever worked with that is not on a horn was the Stage Accompany ribbon... probably because it was nearly flat, very wide bandwidth (it went flat past 20kHz.. - not that many can hear up there) and it was lower in distortion by an order of magnitude compared with other very good direct radiator drivers of any type... It did have vertical dispersion issues however... so no free lunch (yet). FYI usable range was from 1.5kHz. up.

So there is my "2 cents worth" of personal preferences and opinion... and as always, I am always right. :D

Took the words out of my mouth, assuming we're limiting ourselves to dynamic magnetic drivers. If we don't, then there's the Hill and Ionovac drivers...
