G'day all,

In my quest to find a suitable surround speaker (to DIY), I stumbled across this:

http://www.google.co...s/US20110158445



Lets just assume a "di-pole" rear is a good idea.....I dont want to get into a di v mono discussion

What do you think about the waveguide?

I will have some AE TD8's to use with these, I thought perhaps I could couple with one of the Mundorf Dipole AMT's (the big one), cross at around 2khz. 2 way only.

Thoughts?

Here is the off the shelf version:

Sweet!

I haven't kept up with their current stuff but IIRC JBL Synthesis had some surrounds that worked the same way but with two horns angled, I think.
