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.
The pro has longer voice coil (26mm vs 18mm) so higher xmax and greater bass control at high excursion

No. Fane is way way above of the similar priced Eminance (in terms of musicality, frequency response and cone quality).
In the pro entry level stuff, no one is close to Fane now. Kudos to Mark and his team Clap

PS: I have compared Kappa 15LFA vs Sov 15-600LF and Kappa Pro 15LF2 vs Sov Pro 15-600LF.

 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.

aha its in the xmax 5.5mm compared to 6.9mm think the difference may not be so bad for me then.

I have just been building some 15" bandpass horns and had the opportunity to test the Sov Pro 15-500LF against the Eminence Kappa Pro 15LF and also an old ME15-300B. The Sovereign sounded a lot better to my ears, clearer and more purposeful. It also feels and looks lot better built.
I told the client this and he's mildly annoyed that the new driver beats his old ones...cos now he feels like he has to pay for the Fanes!

The general consensus seems to be that HD15 drivers should have a minimum X-Max of 5.5mm. The sovereign 15-600LF qualifies on that basis but the Pro version is 6.9mm so would presumably be better.
If it's got wheels or tits it's gonna cost a fortune

The sims I have done for HD15s, clearly show Sovereign Pro 15-500 to have smoother, flatter response than either Sov Pro 15-600LF or PD154.

Which is why I swapped back 2x of my new Pro 15-600LFs for 2x Pro 15-500.

Will do the comparison this week or next, and report back.
