If you could get the ribbon up above the woof box I would think that would be an improvement. I wonder if stock ALIII x-over was utilized.

Pretty cool though.

Re: In case you haven't seen it...

Looks like a goddamn coffin. Bet that gets some strange looks sitting in a living room. Great idea though. I think making a center with the smaller ribbons like in the CRM or CRS series from Sunfire makes a little more sense for me (sorry Jean).

Re: In case you haven't seen it...

The only problem with that design, is the dispersion pattern from a ribbon turned sideawyas must be VERY beamy, inthe vertical plane. I bet it has a huge, wide sweet spot, but it's probably in a vertical plane of about 1 foot. I mean, we all know how beamy the ribbons can be in a normal configuration, now just rotate that 90 degrees...

Re: In case you haven't seen it...

A rather unique looking one-off piece for sure. As far as I can see it seems to be a repackaged AL-!!! and that ideal of a hemispherical cross section box for the 10" woofer is really neat.
Why let facts or common sense get in the way of your opinions.

:lol: :lol: :lol: No worries at all... I like what we did but I am sure it can be improved....the sub is on the floor 5 feet from it pointed towards the centre -just like to have fun with audio...use what you have and try and make it work, its all good 8)
Would be interesting to hear it.
Ours works fairly well but still thinking about a way to throw more sound to the sides so you can hear the centre better off axis. :-k HMMMMM maybe we could bend the damn ribbon....teehee hee that would be cool...start working on it toymaker!!!!

Re: In case you haven't seen it...

As much as I like ribbons, I don't think a 48" ribbon is the right choice for a center channel... the sweet spot is too narrow vertically IMO.
Besides, that thing is HUGE :lol:

They would have been smart to put a flat top on it too, so yo ucould put your TV on top of it....
Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it... because nobody else will.

Re: In case you haven't seen it...

Yeah it takes up much room....would be nice to mount it into the wall not that that would help- has to be pointed down towards your head, and the sofa is the length of the sweet spot. Off to the sides you just don't hear it as well.
So if you have more than 3 people watching a movie they just don't hear it right.
If your room can seat 2 rows of seating then it may work.... :shock:
So .....could you make ribbons rounded out like a baby moon hub cap to splay the sound out some? :lol:
