    When selecting drivers for bass guitar cabs, are there any advantages of one type of material over another? Any that should be avoided?

    How do the different materials affect your sound?
  2. I can't think of any major pro speaker manufacturer who use kevlar or any other kind of coating on their speaker cones. That's usually found in car audio speakers.

    Ashdown and Peavey come to mind.
  4. I think I said pro speaker manufacturer...ie, JBL, Emminence, EV, Jensen, Fane, Selenium, Celestion et al.

    Wait, let me go back and look. Yup, that's what I said.

    Ashdown uses Jensen drivers. IIRC, Peavey's drivers are now made by Eminence.

    I had a 10 replaced in my Mesa 210 under warranty, and they sent me an EVM
    with a composite cone. Looks like paper, but I think it's coated or soaked or somfin'. Sounds great and it is an EV.
