Would like to hear the results, apparently they can give the PD's a run for their money. 
Safe breadbin, Quorn?

just got 4 also.. initial response to them is they apear well built big magnets strong looking cones... can see the cost cutting went on the pressed steel chasis rather than cast... but still its really thick pressed steel. They certainly don't look like they're gonna fall apart. quite impressed by sound in one of my piramid boxes also.

The Pro ones are cast chassis. Pressed ones are the normal Sovereign

Been such a lazy @!$#, have only tried 2x of them in some 2x15 reflex cabs at home... Madness... Warm and deep straight out the box... Shocked

Had another look at the HD15 sims, and so exchanged the other 2x drivers for Sovereign Pro 15-500, as graph dictated smoother response. I'll compare the 2x different types, and report.

All drivers provided by Mr PauliePaul of course.Embarrassed

Lev, do you reckon these drivers will be a good substitute for PD1550 in a reflex box??
Also, would a Proline 3000 drive 4 of these easily doing 80-300Hz?

Never heard PD1550 in reflex, only in Turbo 215s, and Shanti Wbins, so don't know. But the Fanes  seem to be  very strong drivers.

i dont think the fane can match the PD range of 15's, not when the Fane costs 70 quid !
I would accept any "LF" driver to have the ripple cone.
Lev i bet that Fane sounds very musical and promising, but it wont drop nothing like the pd1550
The New Fane 15 can be compared to the Eminance 15" range ..some of the new Fane range will match or better the Eminance range.

yeah i knew that already, wasn't paying a great deal of attention to the post obviously. but is that the only difference???
Anyway the pressed steel chasis look pretty tough so i'm not that worried.. they may even be slightly lighter because of it.
