Whizzer cone = more extended frequency response

Wizzers add mass but also extend the high frequency response of a cone driver, so I think there's more to it than just power-to-weight ratio.

My understanding is that a wizzer cone's smaller diameter and steeper profile make it much more rigid than the main cone. So when the main cone is effectively de-coupled from the voice coil due to cone flexing at high frequencies, the wizzer remains rigid and couples well to the voice coil and to the air.
