I remember the Cronu Spiralhorns at ETF way back in 2003. I walked into the room with music playing and had to ask "where are the speakers". The guy that built them had nice silk art stretched across the fronts and it had me completely fooled since they were hanging on the wall like paintings. I asked to have some punchy music put on to see how well they play it and we had a room full of German, Dutch, Swiss and American guys up on our feet dancing to it. It was a fun moment. They are truly stealth speakers.

The biggest ones I have made were 22in. Maybe it's time for a full size 28in or 30in one. I have some RS 40-1197's (FE103) that need a home.

27" should be great for those X. How old are the 1197's? Ferrite or Alnico?

I think these are ferrite, circa 1999 based on the stamped label on the back. They were new in box units that I got as a gift from Godzilla.
