I've been trying to get various folks to give this a try.
According to the Madisound tech guy, it was something that used to be done a pretty good bit years ago, but seemed to have fallen out of favor in more recent decades
It may well be something that doesn't work very well except in isolated cases. It is one of those things that I came across that seemed to make a surprising difference. so I thought I would try to understand it better.
The only person that seemed to have heard of this to some degree other than Moray James is Tom, the chief tech at Madisound.
Tom said that this was frequently done by Japanese manuufacturers and others with 6 and 8" full rangers, before the widespread use of 2 and 3 way systems. He never mentioned field coils.
He said that he had been aware of this and had seen it a number of times in the past but had never seen anything technical about what was actually transpiring.
