This all started with Lycan posting a technical comparison of the HAT L4's vs the Scan Speak 12M (http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/...-scan-12m.html). From the direction of that thread, I am going to be conducting a Subjective listening comparison of these and many other 4" midrange drivers.
Here is a list of the drivers/members involved in the test:
Scan Speak 12M (Lycan)
HAT L4 (BidRed)
Dynaudio 430 (Niebur3) - Tester
Vifa NE123 (Niebur3) - Tester
Morel CDM54 (Remeolb) - Tester
Morel CDM88 - (Remeolb)Tester
and what ever else BidRed is sending
We also have Bikinpunk sending testing equipment and Kizz as a Tester. If anyone else wants to be involved, let me know. I am in Omaha, NE (centrally located for anyone!).
It also looks like H-Audio will be sending some Trinity's for testing.
We have 5-6 people right now confirmed for the listening and will be doing both blind and non-blind testing (see if brand/price does cause a bias). It will be a controlled environment and I will try to do a sealed and IB as well as on/off axis. Hopefully we will be able incorporate it all.
Right now, we have a request for DLS Iridium if anyone wants to put them up against the domes in this test. This is probably going to be a pretty extensive test!
Report is done. Please see the following link to view the report and discuss the test:
