    Carbon Fiber Kevlar Cone vs Paper

    looking at doing two two DD 3515s carbon fiber cones. Have heard that the CF cones sound a bit harsher than the paper cones. Going to pick them up tmrw just wondering if anyone has some insight on this...

    Maybe if you tape some feathers to the cone it will soften the response a bit.

    Re: Carbon Fiber Kevlar Cone vs Paper

    the cf cone is going to be very rigid, which can cause distortion because the edge of the cone is fighting the surround, and it is very light which will raise the fs. what you have op is a pair of burp subs.

    IIT:

    Implying that a sub with a suspension so stiff you can stand on is "musical"

    Implying that cone material will color sound <80hz

    Pure cosmetic unless you're running mega power where you'll need exotic cone to survive the pressure
