    Re: copper vs. aluminum voice coils

    Copper has better conductivity, meaning you can get a higher current density for a given gap topology (read: higher BL and a lower Qes). Aluminum is lighter, so you have a higher resonant frequency.

    Bottom line - it really doesn't matter to the consumer. If a driver company pushes one over the other, it's usually because they don't have anything worthwhile to talk about...
