yowza!  You guys must have been on page 2 - I didn't see. Anway, the name really came from a guy and I at work that call each other on our badges (we make hands free wi-fi communication badges; voice-over-IP; think Star Trek communicator) and we would call each other jokingly like ... "kssshht.... Gnat one to Gnat Leader... over" Smiley

I did the double suspension trick today to my fe206e.

I was to lazy to remove the drivers. It's not an easy job but I had experience with the passive installation in the hdt.

My hdt are the alternate tuning ones using whizerless driver and amt-1 tweeters.





It's pretty fresh and probably too soon for evaluation but so far it's a slightly different driver than before.

The mids is less forward and may have less energy but it seem more balanced with the rest.

The bass seem cleaner and slightly more present.

I can't speak for the highs because I'm cutting them at 8khz.

I'll wait some weeks to see what happen. The membrane seem pretty stiff for the moment added to this that the drivers are still pretty new.

I don't know if Steve will be selling the new phase plug used in the DFR8, but if he's willing I would recommend it for those DIY'ing their drivers.  The DFR8 has better treble response then the old FE208EM and does not require felting the phase plug to reduce the slight brightness.  Now, I can't make any claims for how it works in a whizzerless driver... that's a whole different animal.

I also have a pair of decware fe206em.

Those with the new phase plug but without the double suspension (bought in january)

My original pair of fostex with some dynamat on the basket and the diy phase plug are almost impossible to discern from the decware driver.

I'm not sure that the form of the new phase plug have a lot to do with the sound of the new dfr-8

Well the cabinet could be playing a part.  All I know is that for me, in the alt-tuned HDT cabinet, the new DFR8 sound to have more extended treble, or better dispersed perhaps.  However, I will say that the DFR8 was not fully broken in, so it's bass would have been less perhaps making the treble sound more pronouned.
