    I know we have talked about cabinet dimensions, but wondering about the quality of drivers. Many companies hype their specially designed and made drivers. However, there are companies that have used basic drivers to make exceptional speakers, IE, Snell (in their day), Spica(also in their day. Just wondering what others might think on this subject.

    Here's what I have learned over the years: Exotic/and/or super expensive is not an indicator of superior results. Having said that, good drivers do cost money, as well. Unfortunately, auditioning drivers for potential use can get to be quite expensive.
    If you are able to learn about raw driver construction techniques, then by all means do so. Having a few reliable sources of concrete opinions helps, too.
