    I measured 6.6 ohms at the terminals after new coil install. I liked how this 6500 didn't come with the ugly paper surrounds also.

    Its much harder to set by eye with the black aluminum, but here are the relief holes in VC...

    Maybe M(ms) but don't think the holes would reduce the weight by any significant amount. Perhaps Q(ms) if the holes cause/allow air flow related interference or relief. For that matter could also affect F(s). Overall would guess the T/S changes due to those holes is probably negligible (i.e. indiscernible from margin of error).

    It would be interesting to see how it effects leakdown test times. I can say that my early 6500s with no holes in VC former take forever to leak down.

    Instead of the air having to go through spider, down around the voice coil, and out through the dust cap, it can skip the step of having to go through the narrow annular gap on the inside of voice coil.

    Thanks! Curious about test lead resistance of ~0.5 Ohms (that's a lot!). Do you have to subtract that from Re to get the voice coil measurement or has DATS already done that?
    You know, looking at the graph it appears that DATS is reporting the lowest resistance encountered through the sweep as the R(e).
    Haven't found any information on whether the test lead resistance is automatically subtracted. However if it were automatically subtracted, why would they even bother to leave the info on there.
    When testing inductors, resistors and caps the test lead resistance is definitely compensated for by DATS.
    The test lead resistance is near zero for most of the sweep (up to about 6kHz), max resistance from leads occurs at 20kHz, and that is the resistance reported as R(t). Took a screenshot of the test lead calibration (look at blue line on bottom for test lead resistance).n1pws7ada345.jpg
    Gonna go out on a limb and suggest that the R(e) reported by DATS *may* be affected by the drivers momentum at any given frequency.

    This definitely shouldn't matter as it has the solid felt dust cap.

    Hmm. But you did say that Polk used the holes in the later models which have the more gauzy clothlike dust caps?

    Perhaps they were both designed to help with voice coil cooling by ventilating the airspace above the pole piece better? Cooler pole piece translating to cooler voice coil?

    If the airspace in the enclosure acts as a spring of sorts (esp. with acoustic suspension speakers), perhaps even in a passive radiator or ported speaker it will enable the cone to move more rapidly and respond to transients more quickly.

    Maybe it will effect Vas.

    Also, with Le measurement, can you tell DATS to do it at 1kHz instead of 10kHz? For a midwoofer it might be more appropriate. Or maybe it doesn't make much difference?
    Actually you are right here again. DATS does have a setting to change it to 1kHz. Ran the 6500 and it now shows the L(e) to be the same as the handheld LCR.
    Maybe you should have a DATS, I can't even seem to figure out the simplest thing like that without a hint. Can't figure out why it would make a difference, but it did. Now have to re-read all about inductance so don't make anymore erroneous statements.

    Don't feel bad and thanks for the data. You can really help our database on the vintage drivers. Even DarqueKnight measured Le of the MWs at 10kHz so you are in very good company I'd say :)

    PS: Do you have any Polk made tweeters to measure sensitivity on?

    Yes, but am afraid to (added mass is tricky with tweeters).
    Have a set of M7 Series 2, a set of M4A and a set of M4.6 Series 2 as well as the M7B. The 7B are Peerless tweets, forget the others but think they are SL2500 except the M4A, no idea what tweets those have.

    Morning research verifying that Le is very nonlinear and varies with both frequency (I didn't know how much!) and displacement (I did know) of voice coil. Shorting rings are to deal with variation due to displacement, but afaik we don't have that in any of the Polk MWs or tweeters.

    Made another shortened VC spud so I can align and adjust two MWs or glue-in more than one VC at at time. I clearanced the step shorter that holds the VC edge to allow less stress on spider when locked down...

    Noticed the value measured here is labeled "effective inductance" which varies as the given coil varies in proximity to a magnetic field (speaker magnet). Wondering if this is the reason (or just part of the reason) inductance varies with frequency in a loudspeaker.
    All of the research I did on inductors (grand total of about 2 weeks worth) was specific to winding them at home and reaching intended values, none of which included inductance in a loudspeaker environment.
    At any rate this helped clarify a couple of questions, so thanks for that.

    It's all in that paper and in those D'Appolito Equations (showing Le as a function of frequency f). In the paper, Loudspeaker 1 has aluminum shorting ring above the gap and Loudspeaker 2 has one below the gap. The shorting rings act to reduce the inductance at displacements in the direction of the shorting ring location, which will also reduce the impedance.

    Why I don't know. It's over my head. But magnetism is an atomic level phenomenon and has to do with electron orbitals and their spin directions and the like and I think the Le depends upon back EMF generation due to magnetic fields.

    Over my head too, just dabbling really.
    However finally read the paper late last night. From the paper, "the effective inductance is increased as the coil moves away from the pole piece and top plate".
    Reminded me of this article
    http://www.troelsgravesen.dk/coils.htm
    Basically an inductor is, in almost all cases, affected by any surrounding mass, more so when mass is placed directly in the electromagnetic field of the coil (i.e. the open ends of the coil where the magnet plate is located).

    The aluminum plate was worse than the plywood. Not surprising. Aluminum is a paramagnetic material and plywood is totally nonmagnetic.

    https://www.nde-ed.org/Physics/Magnetism/MagneticMatls.xhtml

    "Paramagnetic materials have a small, positive susceptibility to magnetic fields. These materials are slightly attracted by a magnetic field and do not retain the magnetic properties when the external field is removed. Paramagnetic properties are due to the presence of some unpaired electrons, and from the realignment of the electron paths caused by the external magnetic field. Paramagnetic materials include magnesium, molybdenum, lithium, and tantalum."

    The 6500 with replacement Wuhan coil got here yesterday from @xschop. Here is what DATS turned up for T/S parameters.
    c0q6i674q5l7.jpg
    27yddd4jgrii.jpg
    Ran it through the process half a dozen times with no significant changes.
    The temperature and humidity are pretty high in the shop today, so re-ran the 1980 silver basket MW6500 right afterwards. Today it looks like this.
    xl80xv5362cw.jpg
    32y9wi2n9xbp.jpg
    Other than a high Q(ms) it would appear to be a better match for the other original M7B 6500, in fact a very close match indeed.
    Busy with several things ATM, thought you all might like to see so posted real quick.
    When there is time will be putting it in the original cabinet for side-by-side comparison with the original, then against the 1980 silver basket to determine which will win the M7B permanent residency.

    Can you do an overlay of the two impedance curves (maybe you can't because vertical scaling is different)? Zmin is similar although occurring at a lower freq.. Zmax is quite a bit higher and at a lower frequency. Do you have the raw data for each so we could calculate Zavg.? It would be interesting to know the number of turns in each to try to find out why the Sensitivity (@ what freq?) is about 3dB lower. Not surprising that Qms calculated as quite a bit higher according to this:

    Would the slightly lighter coil have anything to do with a higher Qms?

    How does DATS calculate Mms, which equals Mmd + Air Load? DATS is saying higher Mms (Mms ratio >1). A more compliant driver with higher moving mass should have a lower Fs, which is what was measured here. Could be the (> than 1) compliance ratio relative to the silver basket is greater than the (< than 1) Mms ratio? Lower Fs actually should give higher Mms, all other things being equal (which they aren't here). (Cms x Mms) must be greater for the Wuhaned driver.

    Found another clue. Apparently Cms is proportional to Vas. So for two speakers of approx. equal Vas, Cms is also approximately equal. If the Vas are equal, then the driver with the lower Fs would have to have a higher Mms.

    So a set of M10 6510 MW's leaves the Polk factory 40 years ago and your kid in college, pounds them into oblivion at the dorm. They have higher Vas when their suspensions are about wore out?

    Yeah and the voice coil is probably rubbing too, especially if it is a MW6500 in a 7B 🤣

    Turns out DATS has a patented method of checking for VC rubbing, I found out today. Fs shouldn't shift as level decreases during impedance testing, unless there is a damaged driver:

    Have not yet figured out how to get DATS to do an overlay, should be a simple thing but has eluded me thus far.
    Zmin is similar although occurring at a lower freq.. Zmax is quite a bit higher and at a lower frequency. Do you have the raw data for each so we could calculate Zavg.
    Was in such a hurry (currently working on an M7 Series 2 refurb) didn't even look at the Zmax or impedance curve scaling differences until you pointed them out. Not sure what raw data is or where to pull it from, will look into it.
    It would be interesting to know the number of turns in each to try to find out why the Sensitivity (@ what freq?) is about 3dB lower.
    The Sensitivity is 3dB low compared to the 1980 MW6500, but compared to the other (original) 1983 MW6500 it is only 1.16DB low. Will try to re-run the original and the Wuhaned through DATS in a short time period such that temp/humidity can be ruled out as contributing factors to T/S discrepancies. Should be this week sometime.
