Help Identifying this speaker

Anyone know what speaker this is (top of page - blue)? It looks to have an air motion tweeter but I cannot find anything online that looks like this one.



Thanks in advance.

I used the Google Image Search.

The picture at musiccritic.com appears to be based on a stock image. In other words, it's fake.

The tweeter appears to be mounted well behind the front baffle. Why would anyone do this? Appears to be fake, but it could be an Iphone on top of a huge bluetooth speaker

Yea, I found that stock image too but the speaker intrigued me.



I was hoping I could find where the copied the speaker photo from. I like finding unusual speakers and DIY kits that go past the typical black box.
And I agree, the tweeter placement looks weird / horrible.

One that would sound incredibly terrible if it existed because you won't be able to find a crossover point that works for those 2 drivers. (Also, what a horrendous, disgusting color - it screams total fad and cheap throw-away garbage once you decide on what the next fad you want is - rather than looking like it has class or quality)

To me, the blue is actually better than the typical black of almost every other speaker in existence. I do agree it probably sounds like crap the way its designed though. Given that it seems to have a brand label below the driver, I figured someone created this "thing" at some point - which is why I posted to see if anyone had details on it. Bastard Child speakers are fun to look at, but never own

I like blue in general but a blue speaker is a speaker that someone's spouse picked out because it matched the paint, not one chosen for its quality. And the next time the spouse demands the room be repainted another color, suddenly the speakers have to go because they clash.


(Edit to note: not trying to insult, just having fun at the expense of the artist that made the image)

From Daignault Audio. Wolf von Langa SON speaker.

I can't post a link here at the moment as my account has reset at some point. But you can find them on facebook. Wolf von Langa has a website which is the name plus a dot com.

I would love to hear how they sound.

Nice find.

I'd love to see the frequency response graph.

I'm still convinced this used to be a washer/dryer combo before.

My apologies. I figured that the speakers were as fake as the composite image they were part of.

I looked for a price. On an Australian site, 16.5k AUD each (something over 11k USD). I think I'd spend that sort of money elsewhere.
