You can count the number of commercially available drivers that were designed for omnidirectional speakers on one hand. With several fingers left over.

Let's see Ohm A / F, German Physiks


does thumb count, if so I'll need to pull it out ....


as for drivers for DIYers, that's a very small number indeed

the only true omni's I've heard is the Ohm F, and certainly interesting, but even more impractical for a lot of folks than a dipole planar

Even Ohm Fs are not truly omni... vertical radiation is restricted. The MBL have similar restrictions.

Last i knew you could buy the DDD "Ohm F" driver. Very dear indeed thou.

It could be done, in theory, by moving around a hyperSphere (4 spatial dimensions) in & out of our 3D world. Need some break thrus in Physics for that thou.

well, I just watched John Carter of Mars* on the PVR last night, so I know that what we consider the constraints of time / space are really just our limited imagination

*actually another example of just how far the SOTA of digital image making has progressed in the past decade - much of the action was laughable, but the visuals were quite a lot of fun - and if nothing else made me think about asking wife to rethink her attitude about tattoos

back to our regularly scheduled programming
