Nice job Rob! I love my XRS and they got me off the speaker merry go round!
I have what I set out to get.
Great sound and I want for nothing else.

Great idea, this should be a sticky and updated whenever a new review pops up!

Thanks Rob; starting to read.....   should keep us busy for a while  :).

I love this line in the MaxHemp review:

Quote
The Maxhemp is a ported one-way speaker (with
additional whizzer cone) that uses a single 8"
driver made out of hemp, potentially lending a
whole new meaning to high fidelity.

Many thanks Canada Rob,

Lots of work getting the list compiled. Also I'll be working on obtaining current reviews.

Hi Peter,

Thanks and brings me back to the old days of all the hemp comments. It was really fun and kind of miss it. That was in relative terms the old days when I started my OEM American made drivers. Working with John Harrison at Tone Tubbies was a lot of fun too. He started with the hemp cones and I got the hemps' from his hard work and configured them for single drivers. His guitar speakers are some of the best out there Sadly he passed a couple of years ago.

Thanks,
Louis

Takes me back too Louis. They'd be legal in Washington and Colorado now!  :lol:

Let this be a lesson to all you Omegahead's: I really wanted and needed to hear some different flavors, but I should have never sold my Superhemps. They were classic Omega and I miss them!

Hope you are all well friends.

 Hi gbeard,

Thanks and hope you are doing very well. They would be in those states  :lol:

Thanks and means a lot. I always wanted to bring the Superhemps back. I have a new 8's now and there done and ready. Who knows they may show up in the store.

Thanks again,
Louis
