Thanks.

Subwoofer assisted? That's cheating. Not fullrange anymore.

How's about Fullrange Assisted Tweeter Technology FATT? Somehow folks would definitely not call that fullrange anymore.

Understood. You mentioned an optically transparent screen, do you mean a projection screen??

I think it's a great way to design a speaker, cheating or not.

My two favorite speakers from the last two DIYFests were FAST systems. Alpair 6m + SDX7 this year and FF83en + 2xEL166 from the year before. I think I've said that a lot on these forums, they made quite an impression on me.

There has been lots of work done by Dave at Planet 10: A thread for Tysen and variations on FAST

There are many others as well if you do a search.
