Noble Audio - the Wizard returns! - Page 295

post #4411 of 23897
I was thinking, would it be possible to make Noble universals from transparent plastic?
post #4412 of 23897
Wasn't it mentioned that clear plastic is more brittle and black was chosen for being stronger?

I am confused!  I just ordered 8C's and selected clear everything (faceplate, shell, etc.), is it possible this has not ever been done?  Since these were options on the order page I assumed it was no big deal.  Can I assume the comment about clear being more brittle was on the order of urban legend?  If true, then I will definitely change my order, I want my 8C's to last a long, long time.  Cosmetics (clear, black, neon orange, whatever) are of no importance to me, durability and lifespan are VERY important.

Clear shells are in fact the strongest out there as there's no color agent mixed in. The deeper the color, the more color pigment you have to add and thus weakening the shells to some extent.

We can do all clear, it's no problem. We haven't done it because nobody has asked us.

Hello, is it too much trouble to post graphs of your tunes?  I would really appreciate it if you do as I'm curious how it looks on paper as I don't get a chance to audition Noble products.

Well, the EKG graphs saves lives, and tuning graph saves sounds.  :tongue: 

 

So, please, post some graphs Noble.  You will get lots of cool points for it.  :D
