All of those applications mentioned have one very important thing in common - they require large open spaces where no bracing is allowed to penetrate. You can't have 2x4'x criss-crossing the rooms...

It isn't something you would really "notice" in a straightforward way, but there has been research to this effect. I'm sure in some cases the effect is neglible, and as above in some extreme cases...

Surprisingly the brain will pull the image down quite easily to match the perceived L and R height. But there are of course extreme cases, especially when using a big 16 x 9 screen, or a very high...

That makes no sense. Based on your suggested bracing scheme, and explanations of it, I cannot help but conclude you simply have no idea what your talking about.

Single speaker above.

Placing two, one above and one below, will cause serious lobing artifacts in the vertical plane.

Placing one below, while OK, is much easier to localize (if you're an...

Strength isn't required in a speaker panel. The forces are quite small. Stiffness, mass, and damping are needed, probably in that order. MDF is particularly good when it comes to mass and damping....

I guess that might work. But at >$5k for the pair, it isn't exactly a cost effective solution. For the same money, a stack of miniDSP products could provide 20 digital or analog inputs and up to...
