What do you know? Have you owned and played them all? Which one is you favorite?
I have never found a way to play a magnet by itself. No wires to hook up to.
I was just about to ask "sorta" the same question, then I saw this, I'm curious and skeptical of the Neo cabs and whether or not they can get as Deep as the Ceramics.
I won't buy but neo anymore for gig cabs because the gain in weight is way worth the extra price.
They have no trouble "getting as deep" as ceramic magnet designs or deeper. It is all designer's choice. Neo removed some limitations in design, but early designs over emphasized the available increase in high frequency response (designer's choice not a limitation of material).
Poll added. Please vote for your favorite tone magnet. Get on your soap box and make your point!
That's an interesting take on tone magnets. Why would you think that?
Please explain further.
Perhaps he meant, the gain in weight reduction? But maybe he adds lead weights so his cabs don't walk around on a hard floor... or something equally redonkulous.
Yes, please do!
He meant that it was worth hauling heavy cabs. The gain in weight was offset by the money that stays in his pocket by not buying neos
Wait! What? Heavier cabs sound better? That 'splains EVERYTHING!
Nope. They're cheaper
Where is the electro-magnet option on the poll? Any old HiFi guy knows PM speakers are for portable radios.
The pager system in my building has ceramic speakers and they have no bass and are very tinny compared to the neodymium in my bass cab.
Alnico in my pickups make my bass sound really good though, so I am going to say, all the above.
Now give me a carrot.
The earth's core is a big electromagnet. It's the best.
I think most of the cabinet weight is in the construction and cab itself. An 80 OZ magnet is 5 pounds...How much do the neo's weigh? Just 2 or 3 pounds less? That's not a deal breaker for me.
Beets, 'cause I haven't a clue what differing magnet technology does to the sound of a speaker.
How would you even test that other than subjectively?
Maybe today is the day we find out what exactly IS the best metal for metal.
Just haven't found the input jack to make the world rumble yet. Let me know if you stumble upon it, actually no need to let me know something tells me I'll be alerted to this discovery.
beets. no carrots
