Would that be a "radial array"?
I confess that as an electrostatic enthusiast, I agree with his sentiment about mass - and the Sound Lab U-1PX trumps his design by orders of magnitude. :)
But, I'll stick with my plans for a DIY swarm with cone drivers under and between the 63s.

Cone drivers are fine for bass because bass is much slower.I still love the bass on large electrostatic panels such as the Acoustats and Soundlabs but,they are massive in size to get there. My Martin Logan CLXs are also massive in size but only go down to 55hz so I do need a sub for deep bass.

one matches monopolar dynamic drivers to dipolar panels. Arguably, using dipolar subwoofers would address that challenge.
Or, use specially designed electrostatic subwoofers like the UB-1!
