Marketing is fun, right? Fairy tales for adults.
I can't read any of the links provided because they have been moved or deleted. What's up with that?
If anyone is claiming this enclosure is not tuned they have a fundamental lack of understanding about how the physics of audio works. All enclosures, in fact any boundary that is at least semi solid and near (within 1/4 wavelength) a raw driver creates impedance peaks. Those peaks will be there no matter what driver you decide to stick in the box. There is nothing new under the sun and there is nothing in these enclosures that can't be simulated accurately in Akabak. There is no such thing as an untuned enclosure.
except that there are some respectable guys in the industry who were given details about the MVW and found the claims credible.
I don't know what claims were made and I don't know which respectable guys thought these claims were credible. Can you point to a link (that still exists) where I can see these claims and a list of respectable guys who think this is credible? The only link that's still valid is the video of a guy playing bass guitar so quietly his speaking voice is louder than the bass cab, and he's a business partner so nothing he says is of much objective value.
I don't expect any problems in obtaining a patent even if the idea has no value (I've seen a patent describing how to swing on a swing), so this will be fun(ny) when the details finally come out.Edited by diy speaker guy - 11/30/12 at 7:41pm
