    Another good thing about SB is that the company actually communicates in a polite way with the end user, if you email them with questions. Same with SEAS. Not the same with Scanspeak, unless you are buying 300 units

      I've had very polite and useful responses from ScanSpeak.

        ditto. I've actually had an engineer reply to me when I asked a question regarding some measurements I obtained and posted to my site. he replied with technical information regarding the design.

          The idea of new drivers like these sounds amazing to me. I want to get excited! Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but do you mind sharing how you came about this information?

            After a long wait, the SB17CRC35-04's and 08's are available at Madisound! Listed at $94.00/each, they are intriguing drivers.

              For us uniformed consumers, what is Rohacell?

                I'm sure even an uninformed consumer knows about google. ;)

                The cones that SB is using look a lot different than the CF/rohacell that you get on a Morel driver. SB looks to have used just foam backed carbon fibre, and without the shiny lacquer finish. So its more of an open face sandwich. ;)

                Morel uses 2 layers, the front layer is woven, and the back layer is loose fibre more like paper, then has a lacquer finish that from what I've seen doesn't cover everything as there's always some carbon fibre poking through the sheen, but it does effectively fill the voids between the weave.
