Lots of other manufacturers harp on about the various combinations of materials used in there drivers such as rohacell/glass aramid/polyglass/polypropylene etc. Just out of curiosity what are the 8000 series drivers made from ?

Hello,

The cone material used on 8000 series woofers is polypropylene. On other drivers we also have aluminum, paper, Nomex and Kevlar. We are not tied to any specific cone material, we tend to use the best material available for the purpose.
