Alphalite 6 CBMR replaced by ferrite 6A CBMR?

#1 Post by djlivex » Mon Oct 09, 2017 9:54 pm

Can someone tell me why Eminence discontinued the Alphalite 6CBMR 6" neo closed back driver and replaced it with a Ferrite Alpha 6A CBMR? I ask because I have a fully built old Omnitop 12TB and trying to finish it now and painting and I only have the Alphalite to load in them. I guess the new set of plans indicate the 6A CBMR.

Thanks

There are two options in the plans from 2010 of 6A CBMR and LA6 CBMR.

As to why Eminence discountinued, anyone's guess?

Eminence discontinued the Alphalite 6CBMR 6" neo closed back driver because there were not enough unit sales to support continued R&D and production. Same demise as the extraordinary HL10C.
