Probably this is BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) speaker.

I recently bough 2 of these to try out. I think they are slightly bright on axis. However they sound really nice. I have not put them in a project but plan to use them as full range in wall surround speakers.

I was wondering about them in a line array. This will be quite expensive but should work.

I like the look of these, remind me of Accutons but many times cheaper. Maybe the brightness would be tamed if the sensitivity of the tweet and bass drivers were marginally higher..

Sound quality wise, how would they compare to TB's 4" titanium driver I wonder?

These are flat aluminum diaphragms (I won't call them cones now) stiffened by sandwiching with honeycomb, not BMR as they are not intended to be flexible. Pretty expensive drivers but should be really nice off axis. Haven't got the chance to try such expensive drivers. Qts is moderate so maybe a quarter wave transmission line would work, maybe tune them at around 50Hz, and you can actually get a pair of very slim floorstand speaker (say 4" deep). Just my two cents though...

no Xmax for a TL, these are best sealed and rolled off to a sub or in a 3 way.

I have the 3", and that is one outstanding little wideranger with unbelievable HF, bestbuy!
With them you don't need surround speakers

agree with Bill, you need a kickbass support
