Bass is NOT omni-directional, no matter how many say it is.

Probably not too serious as cabinet colouration goes, and acoustically reflective.
Only the larger unit has the support structure, except for the midrange.

The design appears to have changed at some point.
Can't read enough german.
They use cone speakers for low frequency, but enough drivers could reproduce lower ranges adequately.

Horn loaded bass drivers are capable of wider bass dispersion than normal.
These used to be done in the fifties and sixties.

Here's a system that impresses me.
You really can have accurate low distortion bass.

The raw system under construction

The built horn I referred to before is an open full range horn with an opening 25 feet wide, just to clarify.
My system is so casual by comparison.

Here's a tip -

Spatial imaging in low frequency is far more important than high frequency.

Never use a mono sub, unless it's for mono sound.

That's just starting to sink in. The whole basement dedicated to NOT a disco, or a karaoke lounge or even a sound studio, but a sub-sub-woofer.

Bet that entertains the whole neighborhood.
