    100 kg bass compression driver

    Unlike JBL, the Japanese company ALE Acoustics offers compression drivers for the whole frequency range; see http://www.tachyon.co.jp/ale/ale.html

    Drawback: The listening room has to be rebuilt to accommodate the bass compression drivers.

    This picture is interesting. One can see those big P160's bolted to those huge horns in the back? Or are those the next size down?

    Of course the red pallet not matching the bare brown pallet ruins the whole thing for me

    Well as I mentioned before about this room that Giskard so aptly pointed out as having clashing pallets, the room should be rebuilt with audio in mind, or better yet save the history and build a ground up audio room else where on the property.

    Beyond that to me the one major drawback to these speakers is the $60,000 for the pair of bass drivers and the $35,000 for the pair of bass horns.

    Spending $100,000 (I'm including delivery) for the 30HZ to 100Hz portion of your speakers does seam a bit extreme to me. For that kind of money you could have a professionally designed and custom installed pair of straight shot bass horns along the lines of Burwen's.

    Sure Burwen's system could use some updating, but for $100,000 you have a little room to work!

    From what I know, a cube/rectangle or whatever is the WORST shape for a audio room.

    THX for quick answers :)

    Hello,

    *vintageaudiosales* I found a few minutes after posting my thread, thx @ guido (..Gru▀ nach nebenan) - where in germany do you live?

    I sent an email to vintageaudio, now I am waiting for reply..

    I got an offer from an ebay member here in germany, too, but I am afraid these drivers may be used for PA or DISCO/Band like the other speakers he sells.

    Has anyone a tip how I can evaluate the technical condition of a driver? I read a posting about material-fatige of diaphragm here.

    Have a nice day,

    Andreas

    Well if he can afford that this is probably his junk room, on the other than this maybe the only room.

    It would be interesting to hear either way.

    I don't know if this will win you over or not, but delivery is free if you take advantage
    of this offer in the next 30 minutes.
