    Sorry if this has been covered, but I have a few questions I could dig up in the search
    It seems that alot of companies are making cabs with neo speakers. I've heard some reports that they heat up and melt the voice coil very easily(maybe should have put easier instead). In general, do they take more watts?
    another thing is that I've heard that the 10s(in general) have more of a mid range hump, is this true, and are all neo speakers like this(12'' and 15'')

    I think the big issue is that they are significantly lighter. Also they produce a bump in the mids that a lot of players these days are really going for.
