Re: Cones- Paper vs Plastic, aluminum, carbon fiber etc
flexing is not a good thing with cones. It needs to be rigid. But at the same time, a heavy cone material might make the sub "lazy", so to speak.
Personally, I can't really tell if one sub cone is made of paper, and the other is titanium jsut by listening to it.
I guess what we really need to do is to get a sub, then have two diff cones with the same motor. Somehow I feel there's no real way to tell.
There are some poeple in Korea who have tried to tell me the various difference in sound betwwen different cone material, but i say screw that, get what you like.
RF subs aren't really favoured amongst the crowd that prefer tight, punchy bass.

Bass drive-by's are uncool.
