regarding the '50 ft horns in the backyard', gee it would be a bit hard to fine tune them wouldn't it? better make sure all the sims are spot on, bit tricky to decide it needs to be shortened by a foot!!

I was wondering something like that, it would be a major pain in the neck if he screwed up the mathes and ended up paying 300,000 for system with midrange distortion and holes in his FR.

That 50ft horn system is crazy! I would love to hear that thing. Who knows it may not even sound that great. Those tube amps look awesome too(just not 20K awesome), like some kind of Tesla contraption. What I want to know is... What is he using for compression drivers on the bass horn? Anybody know?

I saw a horn enthusiast/expert comment on that system... he said it would sound awful. For something that big, you'd have to have a room that was the size of a gymnasiasm -- something about how the wave form couldn't resolve itself in so small a place.

Sad to spend so much $$ AND not have it sound amazing.

Kind of like sitting right inside the horn. "Can't see the forest for the trees" comes to mind...

Re: Rare, weird, unusual, amazing and/or interesting...

Those Magico's are one of the few high-high-end speakers that actually look like they have really loud bass (basshead here).

Also, wayyy wayyy back in this thread, back at post #2, with those Stradavari's... those are some of the nicest looking speakers I've ever seen. Ever.
