The aluminum cone woofer is said to have a faster transient response and lend a more pronounced 'attack' to the sound, due to the more rigid aluminum material the speaker cone is made out of.
In contrast, the more conventional paper-cone woofer design produces a more 'traditional' electric bass sound, and softens the attack subtly in comparison to the aluminum cone, because there is a little more 'give' to the paper cone material.
Stylistically, the paper-cone version would be appropriate for a wide variety of bass playing styles, from classic rock to jazz to harder modern rock styles, and paper-cone woofers have been the standard material for the majority of electric bass guitar amplifiers throughout the history of the instrument; aluminum-cone bass guitar woofers were popularized in the 1980's and 1990's, and have a more 'hi-fi', piano-like, slightly edgier sound that could be associated with late 1980's/early 1990's heavy metal, 'funk metal', or fusion styles.
