I am with great pleasure observe the craziness that “rakeshpoorun” created around the buy of a Fane’s new production run of Studio 8M drivers. Sure, he created commendable activity. I am sure his definition of Audio implies 6 moths of administrative activity to sell Fane drivers around the world. Well, whatever makes him happy! What however made me to laugh is the anal retentiveness with witch those gays approach the new Fame production run….
So, now Fane made for them a single pair to test of the coming production run. Hold on, Fane told that they can make ONLY 50 drivers as a single run. So, how the hell they were able to make a single pair and send it to test? It was very obvious from beginning that assholes from Fane just take advantage of rakeshpoorun’s interest as in past they did any type of custom single drives with no demand for mass production. I am sure that if Fane would insist that they make drivers to rakeshpoorun only if he will wash cars for all fane employees during a year then rakeshpoorun would run to hire the people to do it.
Anyhow, that all was told before but now the ceremony enters a new elevated round of craziness:
Now they insist to confirm the new driver specification and T-S parameters to what is expressed in datasheet. That is very funny as I wonder what will they do if any of parameters will be off? No one even say that any specific parameter of Studio 8M is critical for it’s sound and that old drivers comply with the specification. What I discovered the Studio 8M I knew only Fs, side and sensitivity and it was all that I needed. Later on, in 2-3 year I saw the Studio 8M datasheet, confirmed that the T-S parameters are pretty shity for my type of horn and… discarded the datasheet as …. irrelevant. As many times I say that T-S parameters shall not be considered for front-loaded horns the people do not get it and keep BS themselves with popular among the idiotic DIYers horn prediction and modeling.
Honestly if I was in Fane shoe then looking at the questions about microphone positioning and T-S collection techniques I would say: “sorry, we do not do those drivers anymore, the shop is closed”. I hope Fane has more patience then I do they will go alone with this craziness. “My god, your new driver has resonant frequency ¼ higher!” What is the end of the fucking would!The Cat
