  • 20Lbs of GLORY!

    Guess xmax's age.

    My guess: 15. His grammar is passable. His trolling is good.

        I really had no idea how large those were, the pictures don't do them justice. The magnet being 8" in diameter and the 20-lb weight makes those things about 4x larger than my 3FE22 full-range drivers, and about 20x heavier.

              So far so good, as expected it measures similar to the ATC and Tang Band 3" domes
              with a little more break-up above 3K and it is extremely efficient, @ 1200Hz
              without a baffle it is about 2dB more efficient than the TW29BN (@ 4K).
              All this is telling me if I implement these properly they should sound
              extremely detailed and "fast". With great power comes great responsibility!

                How low can you reasonably cross it?

                  500 hz for the Volt, 600 for the ATC. so no real difference.

                        ​Craig are they basically the same design, I know the ATC is an older model but is the Volt a modern version of the ATC?

                          I think they are very similar, except magnet size and weight.

                            The Volt has much more output below 1.5K, although it's been a while since I measured an ATC and I don't have the files,
                            or have not found them yet.
