As far as a DIY project that results in performance similar to the DTS-10? That's for another thread, and that's a thread I'm sure a lot of the folks here would participate in if the tone and goals were right. My primary concern is that there is a fine line here - while imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, trying to come up with an outright clone borders on theft of intellectual property.
I'm waiting until I have another project or two built and measured before I light the fuse on something like this - I don't want to build a bunch of hype and wind up with results that don't meet my expectations.

Only if someone is Marketing and selling it. DIY is pretty well a cloning world a large majority of time, people use someone else's IP daily in the DIY world.
Look at all the waveguide solutions, adding foam, etc.....you really thinking that isn't the IP of Geddes? You think no one has ripped a part a speaker or sub and asked, hmmm...how did they do that. Only to go on and build their own, posting all the data...who's IP is that originally? We can say the same about electronics.
Reverse engineering exists period. Its free will to choose if you want to do it or not. Nothing more, nothing less.
No one here is out to make money off Danley so lets just not have a debate that is more or less a lot about nothing.
There will be a DTS-10 clone in the DIY world. I will put $$$ on that one
