Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: "IM distortion almost as bad as the orginal Bose 901"...

Also, I forgot to point out that the 8" Lowther drivers were specified by Paul Voight and his patents back in the 1930's to work in his ported corner horn, which at the time, bested all other designs.

He was also the first to use Tractrix horns while the rest of the world was hung up on (inferior in many ways) Exponential horns for decades.

The best of direct radiator designs use an ARRAY of drivers (3-4 way with subs) of various sizes to achieve lower distortion and FULL Audio bandwidth. I'm not saying they are worth the money to a DIY guy like me, but to ask FIFTY GRAND for an 8" woofer and 1" tweeter in a fancy box is almost criminal. The guy who's selling one used is just passing on his mistake to some other foolish buyer...........IF he can find one.
