Hemp is the name of the fiber that is cultivated from plants of the Cannabis genus. Hemp has been used for industrial purposes including paper, textiles, biodegradable plastics, construction, health food and fuel.
Hemp fiber used for speaker cones provides a durable, tear resistant and water resistant cone. The long fiber of hemp provides better sound reproduction and longer sound waves.
Hemp vs. Paper
Hempcone® speakers deliver an organic and natural sound. By using hemp fibers instead of paper, the hemp cone delivers a consistently sweeter sound that many professional musicians rely on to optimize their recording sessions and live performances.
Paper cones will dry out, become brittle and give a brittle and flat tone. Hemp provides a rich, full spectrum of tone from a cone that is stronger and more flexible.
Ceramic vs. Alnico
Alnico is an iron alloy which in addition to iron is composed primarily of aluminum (Al), nickel (Ni) and cobalt (Co), hence al-ni-co, with the addition of copper, and sometimes titanium. Alnico is inherently a warmer and smoother tone.
Ceramic (ferrite) magnets are composed of strontium carbonate and iron oxide. Ceramic magnets tend to produce a brighter, edgier tone and work great in 4x12 sealed back cabinets.
Alloy magnets like Alnico have an immediate and temporary demagnetizing reaction to the moving voice coil, lending a smooth compression effect to the signal that feels lively and responsive.
Ceramic magnets demagnetize less readily and sound edgier and punchier.
Speaker break-in service:
The tougher hemp cones take longer to break-in than paper cones.
Continuous low watt, low frequency break-in overnight shows the greatest measurable difference (SPL).
Less difference after day 2, but still measurable improvement after day 3.
And less significant difference after day 4.
Speakers continue to improve over many hours of playing, but this simple break-in saves a lot of time and gives a balanced sound response right after installation.
If you want this extra service, select the Break-in option and the speaker is shipped to me for free 3 day break-in.
The $25 charge covers shipping cost to me. Shipping after break-in to US buyers is free.
