Archaea...I was just in touch with Mark about a couple of things, and he stated that, "Folks who have concerns with things are free to contact me directly." In light of the response, the question above sounds like it might be the ideal candidate to be communicated directly to Mark...with a reply posted here since others might be thinking the same way as you.

I know the driver is right at the mouth of the horn on this design, and I wonder if the noises Josh mentions (as not being a problem with a dampened sealed enclosure) might become a problem with the driver rear completely exposed and potentially amplified by the horn mouth. I know I put my head up to they mouth of d_c 's gjallarhorn, and those LMS-5400 drivers were moving fierce! Thoughts? Experiences?
I am doing my best with Mark to make sure we are getting a great price on these drivers and ensure the Group Buy goes as smoothly as possible. I am positive many of you have solid questions about the UXL-18 performance, usage, and past history that I have not thought of. Some of the answers might be scattered elsewhere or be outdated. This is a great, up-to-date thread to place these ideas/questions/answers about this one driver and more readily have that information available to Group Buy participants as well as possible future UXL-18 buyers.
I'd like to see 100% satisfied owners of 40 new UXL-18s in the near future (as I am sure Mark would as well, eh?
). At this time, I feel confident that the performance of the UXL-18 makes it a great HT driver, that Mark will be taking the utmost care in making and assembling the drivers since he knows we test the crap out of these things in multiple environments, can be very critical, publish our findings, and at $410, it is one of the better bang-for-the-buck deals going right now.
Those of you who have already committed have received my contact info via PM.
Take care, y'all.Edited by blah450 - 12/25/13 at 9:08am
