Austrian Audio's science, measurements, and listening tests have shown that 44mm is the optimum size for this design. It ensures professional performance in the Hi-X, moves a lot of air, and eliminates 'wobbling' of the diaphragm. This is akin to damping of the driver mass, which is where their membrane really shows results: it is ultra-stiff while still reducing unwanted resonance.
