    No solid answers to any of these questions at this time. Celestion is working hard to get this driver right and its taken a lot of time and effort so I expect the results will be well worth the wait.

    So a quick question regarding how to power this speaker, since it has an internal crossover circuit you would need to have a poweramp with only one channel yes? I'm asking because I see a lot of 2 channel Full Range Plate Amplifiers that are ment for independently power up the highs and the lows on different speakers/tweeters.

    Yup. So it's probably easier to put it in a guitar cab without a power amp built in, and just use something like the Powerstage 170.

    Seems like that's how the product is marketed and designed to be used, for guitarists to pull their guitar speakers out of their cabs and put one of these in.

    I’ve got a Rectifier 2x12 that I’ve been saving for two of these bad boys should they ever see the light of day.

    Is there another speaker that is similar that would serve the same purpose that you guys have heard or tried?

    where’s the polar bandwidth response of this design?
    what is the crossover point?
    what is the time delay between the drivers at the crossover point?
    what are specifics on crossover design such as slope?
    what are the crossover components?
    how much does it weigh?
    why not use neodymium?

    Yes, that is odd. I am sure they will catch on eventually. While I am not a typical Celestion dealer in that I stock every model they have, I am a dealer in the sense that I can get the F12-X200 and resell it accordingly.

    I contacted Thomann about availability also, and the reply I got was "this will not be available until January of next year."
