No problem.

You just reintroduced performance into your analogy. Now your analogy is more like, Ferrari vs Lamborghini. Similar performance, but one of them has been vandalized. Anyone would pick...

N8, what's gotten into you? Telling me to toughen up, I've got no problem here. Critique all you want, but it's just an opinion so it won't amount to much.

N8, a small box is very ineffecient, and I don't know the TS specs (I doubt anyone other than Nathan does). But based on the limited info I do know, it has a very strong motor and can deal with the...

I meant TOTL ya, oops. I say that based on talking with Nathan. It's not an off the shelf driver by any stretch. But if it was shown to be inferior to an LMS, no problem. It was only my hunch. His...

Just a little FYI, I have a good feeling the drivers in the Funk sub are superior to TOPL drivers we have access to. I could be wrong, but based on my visual, listening, and chatting with Nathan,...

The Funk sub has about 5% less distortion than an LMS Ultra does.

But I have this distortion graph of Joe's 4 UXL-18's, 12.4hz to...

No surprise there, as soon as I see '21 inch' and 'horn' I envision a driver that's too big in a horn that's too small to give good results below 35Hz. I don't even use eighteens in horns. Horns work...

Ya, basically Celestion said they could make them. They won't be 'identical' but their performance will be the same. The frame is the same. The cone is also I believe.
