To my knowledge the final price is 25000 a pair now. The downfiring tweeter is a Mivoc for 25€, the front- and downfire midwoofers are also Mivocs for 50€ each. Some people heard it and nobody found the combination of frontfire and downfire midwoofer placed so far apart and running parallel sounds totally wrong.

I heard them, and I didn't think they sounded bad. They most certainly did not sound 25000€, but if someone gave them to me for free (but not the purple lizard one, just the wooden one), I'd keep them.

Graaf, if you want to get more bass out of the Fostex: It works very well in a horn-reflex (see IKE): Meine Lautsprecher The colours mark where the inner walls are placed.
You can simulate a 1 m "horn" in the demo version of AJ-Horn.

Original (1958-1972) Lowther Audio Vector can be regarded as an early example of a flooder

Lowther USA Bass Horn Speaker Cabinets.

Hi,


Actually, the Audiovector needed to be used with a reflector, which is absent in this DIY Version. So it was explicitly not designed as ceiling flooder.

Later versions omited the reflector and placed a second driver in the front. These are more hybrid, with some "ceiling flooding" and some direct sound to overcome the problems of the ceiling flooder, which sounded grotty..

Later Dick Olsher marketed something similar as CBAE and Castle in the UK also had similar hybrids predating CBAE but appearing after Lowthers later hybrid Audiovectors. Lowther also continues having models with a combination of upward and forward radiating drives in their lineup.

Ciao T
