    Yeah, definitely stay away from Short Fibre cone material because those may explode when you turn up the volume. The Polymer Foam is an added bonus because the multi-singular foam is something you find on cheaper speakers. And Mylar-Titanium with Neodymium?? So much better than Flexiful-Tellurium with Dubnium. That's just the icing on the cake. And with the magnet motor structure, you'll gain at least 10 hp. Wait... what are we talking about again?
