We all know that there are a handfull of drivers out there that have gathered quite a reputation based on what I think is heresay... I'll admit simply because there is a lack of reviews from reputable sources... (cough***XXX***cough) ;)

So I was wondering what everyone thought about shipping in together for NPDANG to order & test drivers... The fund could go strainght to NPDANG so that he could order & test more drivers. That is ofcoarse if he is up to it & his personal time allows it...

For example... I am really curious to see how the RE XXX XBL^2 measures\stacks up to the oferings in the likes of XLS, XXLS, TC2, Dayton Reference, etc...

I am sure you all (as I) have drivers you'd like to see tested...

I think the idea has merit to expose if nothing else the value of the higher priced options out there. We could all benefit from this at a fraction of the asking price...

Just a thought...

I'd rather see a showdown of mids/tweets. (Npdang is rather generous with the info we already have here)

Really, you'd see a much better improvement in sound from your sub by just sound-deadnening or going IB from sealed box in the trunk. Even a low distortion sub will be masked by other factors in the car.

yea... and to add, once test is all done, we could put the drivers on ebay or for sale and respread whatever it sold for b/w contributing members. we might be onto something here.

This isn't limited to just subs... mids & tweets are to be tested as well... I was just putting an example out there...

However, for this to work... I am willilng to put in for all types of drivers & not just what we may be interested in at any given time...

So I would expect all those that can to contribute to "everything" that will be tested. I think that would be fair...

If they get sold, it would be cool if the proceeds went to new drivers. :D That will keep costs down, as even between 30 contributors, this is going to be a bit of money with some of the drivers being mentioned.
Indeed... good idea...

yea... i would much rather see tests go towards mids and tweets tho. not worth it imo to spend it on subs, which in all honesty is least amount of sound spectrum and usually cost more.

im down for the pot luck,possibly use the voting system for the drivers to be tested and alternate from mids tweeters and subs?selling the tested driver to members involved -possible discount would be another beni!

I'll even expand on that. We can all pitch in so 'dang can buy a beater of a car to test drivers in a real world listening environment. I wonder how his neighbors would feel about him parking a 1972 Vega, on blocks, in front of his unit?

If not, then I'd definitely be willing to pitch in some money for speaker testing. It's a good idea, but logistically difficult. I get the feeling somebody's going to get their feelings hurt when driver "X" gets tested before his driver "Y" does. Best handled democratically. I like the voting idea.
