That's a good point Anton, about the piezo'sAntonZ wrote: ↑Wed Jan 12, 2022 12:03 pmBill has designed his PA tops with piezo drivers, which are widely frowned upon yet they perform well. I am pretty sure from that point of view he would not hesitate to use the cheaper drivers for PA subs if they were a viable option. I think they are OK for home use with occasional peaks, but a PA that has them running balls to the wall with hard voltage limiting makes for more thermal and mechanical stress on the drivers. They would not be reliable enough for pro sound use. That is just my uneducated guess though.Seth wrote: ↑Tue Jan 11, 2022 8:26 pmI've got to imagine the biggest reason the option isn't talked about much has something to do with the "public image" of the designs. It's hard enough to get the average Joe to believe the "hype" while promoting the use of well known and trusted drivers, let alone trying to sell the validity a $35 off brand eight inch driver loaded cab to a serious gigging professional.
After the beating I've given my MCM's, I'm inclined to doubt they'd fail in pro sound use. But really, there's only one way to find out. Question is, is finding out worth it? Or, is it more of a fun thought than a realistic quest?
