Were any Tannoy-type dual-concentric designs examined? The amplitude charts supplied with my 8in DC2000s are smooth and within a few dB across the range, apart from a designed-in 'fashion' bump around 50Hz. These drivers must surely have been improved upon by now? I would be interested to know your directionality test method, to check that aspect; they have always been spectacularly sharp in their imagery, but I have never been able to decide if their sensitivity to positioning is due to their ability to accurately 'probe' the environment or if the units had some funny characteristics of their own. I think they have about +/-45deg dispersion with essentially no phase or frequency problems, deteriorating beyond that.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
