I first went to a HiFi show as production manager for Acoustic Energy. We had loudspeaker products created with this mad pistonic metal-cone transducer. Based upon the hardness of the dual face layers of anodising on a spun aluminium cone, the driven piston weighed nothing, was absurdly rigid and...
