Would that be people wanting to build a good cab design and fit it with a cheap driver that won't work in the cab?

That's like buying a high specced BMW and fitting a lada engine inside.

Ciare are f**king annoying to deal with. They actually TOLD me they didn't do 4r versions of the 12.00sw when I knew someone who about 50 of the f**king things in their warehouse.

Somewhere I've got a number that if you call they will actually be helpful, I'll find it if anyone is interested?

Looks like a brute of a driver as well.

that may be true, but i read that ciare only started designing their 18.00sw after seeing a mccauley 6174 loaded bassmaxx cabinet.  I remember also hearing an american company claiming they replaced all 6174 drivers for the 18.00sw.  you can see how ciare have engineered their 18.00sw to be a similar performer to the 6174.  the only difference is that they have aimed for something a bit more horn friendly at the expense of fs being higher.
REFLEX ALL THE WAY.... (however, im playing with horns again...) That ok Mister Valiant? :)
