Have you considered making any slanted style wall mount speakers using that say setup of components? Basically a surround speaker version of the LCR coax's your selling? That would be really cool.
More like a $300 coaxial and a $150 crossover
Yes we are nuts, but being the new kid on the block and not being well known yet, setting an aggressive price point and low margin is one of the ways we can spread the word about what we do. The speaker probably should be $1200. But that is a tough price point to sell at for a new company.
We will be getting third party measurements by the fall.
Working on that for two subs right now.
I do want to do a surround speaker down the road, but using the Radian coaxes might be a bit pricey and heavy for a wall mount surround. I have a few other ideas which we will be exploring in the next few months that may be cheaper and more practical. For now if folks want to go CX-10 for LCR and something smaller for the surrounds I think as long as its not terribly inefficient they should be able to get good results from other speakers.
The most important thing, I believe, is that all front 3 speakers be matched.
One of the benefits of the coax is you can turn it on it's side for center duty.
I was never a fan of going say "Tweeter on the top" for L/R and going MTM for a center, even if the drivers were similar. I can always hear a noticeable shift in panning whereas the panning seems seamless when using three identical speakers up front.
