I dono.... it's all $$ and marketing...
I don't have a ton of $$, and I suck at marketing....
If I made them myself, I'd have to wholesale them no lower than $3,000 a set.... retail in a store/shop would be like $6,000 a pr.
Unless I went the China rout... then I could wholesale them around $1,000-2,000, but would have to have a ton of $$ for a production run over there....

I dono... I also don't know what people would reallt think of them. I know they are loud like I like... but I know they are not what the "majority" would like. That would actually be an easy fix... just put a normal 4ohm ribbon back in them... and you'd have a set of AL-III's with a pretty chassis and a shit load of bass...

They are kind perty ;)

What's different about the ribbons over the 48" stock ribbons in Silvers and AL-IIIs?
It should sound like it isn't there!

Mine are bullet proof !!!

I had custom Kapton made for my ribbons... so far, I have dumped at least 1000w into each one, and haven't fried them yet. The only real problem is they are now 1.8 ohms each.... Amp friers.

That's why you have Lighstars and Sunfires!

That's one helluva chassis cooling fan, James!

Ya know, I was wondering; if you drive your ribbons hard a lot, would it benefit to put a small cooling fan blowing into them from the back side (like the 12 volt computer fans)?

probably not... It'd be like putting a fan blowing on your tubes on an amp... probably needs to get hot.

Toy Maker,

Why not build a second set and submit them for review to some respected publication? A positive review coupled with custom orders could pay up front for production. Maybe even demo them at CES or some such convention.
