Bamboo Cone driver

Another Tang Band first, Bamboo fiber cones! A blend of paper and Bamboo fibers provides a perfect combination of light weight and self-damping. A neodymium motor with a copper ring reduces distortion even further. The result of these features is a smooth frequency response with a very natural, open sound.

Specifications: Power Handling: 25 watts RMS/50 watts max *VCdia: 1" *Impedance: 8 ohms *Re: 6.8 ohms *Frequency range: 75-20,000 Hz *Fs: 75 Hz *SPL: 89 dB 1W/1m *Vas: .21 cu. ft. *Qms: 1.50 *Qes: .48 *Qts: .37 *Xmax: 3 mm *Dimensions: A: 4-15/16", B: 3-3/4", C: 2-5/8".

Not sure what banabe is, but if it were banana, you could have a nice smell as well as good music?

Mosfet will be along in a minute, to say that he's measured banana fibre and the neccesary dorsal stiffening would impede the inductance ring clamp unless spigot b could be manufactured to within a tolerance of 0.000003 and tungsten welded to a ......

sorry, nodded off there for a while.:D:D:D

It is "Banaba" not banana fibre

A palm native to philipines and south east asia.

Many times stronger than paper, better resistance to moisture although in the drivers this is further coated and sealed.

That driver in pic is the Fostex FE108EZ, only 4 inch in dia, full range - very close to lowthers in performance yet cheaper.

Sory Kiang... was just joking. Fostex appear in several kit designs now and I.m quite interested to hear that they have a decent sound. Always did think that we underestimate the savings that a bit of woodwork will achieve. I tried the DIY thread pages, but DIY is no longer very popular amongst the hi fi fraternity it seems. There was a time when wireless world was more of an influence on us that HiFi answers etc.

Notty,

I suspect your audiophileaphobia is still rife and rampant :(

Have you considered a residential stay at a sevenoaks?

I mean with all this 'wood' about, one could almost suspose you were just toying with the posters on here. 'Professional wooden spoon' is an apt title for a fellow of your calibre I feel.

Remember care in the (Audio) community is here for you.

Notty,

Its a common portion of the phobia that the afflictee' tries to 'cover over' the problem, much in the ways alcoholics hide their empty bottles from their familes, though the booze seeping through their pores and red nose tends to give the game away. Much in the same way your 'Fronting out with feign understanding does'

Their quality help available here, you just have to ask.

Hifi wigwam, continues to support and ACTIVELY encourage its programe of rehabilitation for audiophileaphobics, you are not alone in the diesase Notty take dolice in this.

Audiophilesare not bad people. I imagine they are mostly well behaved and responsible members of society.

They are very cheeky, though. And they have funny beliefs. Most audiophiles believe in a strange, parallel version of history. Invariably, audiophiles believe that Jesus wasnot a carpenter as such but a loudspeaker cabinet maker. The 'holy grail' for audiophiles is a pair of Jesus' loudspeakers.

Nearly allaudiophiles believe that audio technology comes from 'space beings'. They also think that Stonehenge was used as a giant hi-fi stand.

Add the fact that they believe they can hear stands, cables, green pen inkon CDs and you'll see thatthebeliefs of audiophiles are really quite daft. But this doesn't make them bad people.

And for all the Heads out there, there's Hemp Acoustics: http://www.hempacoustics.com/ hempcone.gif

As with the others, a damn good idea: tough, naturally-occurring plant fibres - pretty eco-friendly compared to Kevlar and carbon fibre...

churz, eofs
