No one asked for the blueprints, I just wanted to know what the estimated cost would be and since I live in Sweden it would be nice to know if I can actually purrchase the materials here.

My apologies, i was goin' to quick, didn't fully Grok your post and thot you were asking for a password.

IIRC it takes a speaker to provide drive and then most of the rest can be scavenged out of your kitchen. With creativity this could likely be an under $10 project (or even less).

Monsoon tech

Some interesting stuff about iaging, and some similar technologies to decrease distortion in atuos although not near as effective as Bose or Martin logan systems, the Monsoon system costs on average, less than Bose and Martin Logan. I picked up my MH-502s for 59.95 CDN! Onl problem is the puck breaks often, so farmine hasn't broken since the fourth replacement.

Their towers or, Home theatre speakers are relatively good, but if you want Martin Logan sound then purchase the FPF-1600, I wonder if you could buy replacement drivers for their FPF series and build your DIY tower. May not be that expensive either.

That is the same tech. Emminent also has some larger panels.

Hold on,

The “Personal planars” from Decware are quite different from regular planars. On regular planars the sound from the front is in anti-phase with the sound from the back. On the Decware pneumatic driven planars sound emitted from both sides is IN phase. This is acting more like the Walsh bending wave speakers IMHO. So this will sound different than a regular planar.

Am I right
