He means you'll need to fix your teeth once they get crooked from the bass.

amit, if this happens I would not worry about your dental health as I would of your mental health. exposure to loud noises for extended periods is very dangerous.

You're nuts, seriously. I'm rolling on the floor laughing. But I understand what you mean.

But do consider what Navin said above. I'm beginning to think those two GT15s have taken their toll on you already.

Really, pair of GT4-15 on a 601.1 is really a killer. It had awesome bass.....and very very good value for money. Gives a good bang for buck.

Yes, but not permanently. Play them loud, and till 10 mins after the drive...you still have the tuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu..... sound in your head.

Hope Didi kuch aacha kare..

Ok guys, i have received mail from DD tech team about the spooky spider thing. Here it goes.

"The suspension of DD woofers was developed over the past 20 years, with a large influence from our experience building proaudio studio monitors and reinforcement speakers. These speakers are tools for professionals to do their business and they often use their equipment 12+ hours per day. We learned how to build suspensions that lasted longer, maintained sound quality for the long term.

One of the main components of the suspension is the spider system. We use mutliple layers of cloth, with lighter resins impregnated. After the resins break down, the suspension has to rely on the cloth. Most speakers use single layer heavy cloth with heavy resin, when the resin breaks down, the suspension keeps loosening with loss of control and sound quality.

Our suspension system can only be done by hand assembly, so it isn't comparable to mass produced methods. These machines can only place glues in certain ways, so single spiders or double spiders with spacer rings are used, its fast.

The 3500 speakers actually have 6 layers, but we don't count it this way, we are engineering for a specific stiffness after break in."

Hope it clarifies things..

So it means that it has a single spider but with 4-5 layers in it.

Gurus what do you think of the response from DD, sounds reasonable to me!
but then why charge extra for them rather then make it standard on their high end series?

And the response does not mention about multiple spiders, just multiple layers of cloth !

Firstly I must say, for a couple of woofers and an amp thats fabulous technical support. Especially for someone who's pestering them during season time and just before the holidays.

I was asking from the point of view that why would you want to add one more spider? How was another part since I didnt see where the additional spiders go since there isn't enough room there. This is clarified by their explanation (seems like they would've made a custom spider for you!). But by adding a spider you would've had very different specs from the production 3512. I thought that it must be perhaps another variant with higher Fs and lower Vas that they offer on request to suit some special application.
