    How do neodymium's compare against the traditional ferrite? I know that neo's are a hell of a lot lighter, but I also know that if you over-heat the them, they are dead for good. Can neo's provide the same amount of bottom end and hard hitting bass as Ferrites?

    Friggen awesome. I've been pumping an Epifani 410 with neo's in it at loud volumes night after night and I have had absolutely no problems with over heating and they give my six string a rather large bottom end.

    Not saying that they overheat easy, but if they DO overheat, they're done.

    Good to hear though :)

    I'd have thought Neodymium would give better lower end than ferrite? Neodymium is a muuch more magnetic metal - I think the most magnetic natural material on Earth
  5. Do a search, the overheating "issue"....isn't an issue at all. There's an exhaustive thread on this from about 2 or 3 months ago.
  6. The material of the magnet doesn't affect how low the speaker can go, by the way.
