What kind of drivers do they use in their arrays?

When you look at the speaker, you're looking right at the driver(s). The linear motor drives one end of the "petals" (sorry don't know what else to call them. The opposite end of the"petals"are fixed in space.

The resultant very closely resembles a sphere that expands/contracts with applied signal. In theory each would then be the perfect "omni" point source.

Simple by not perhaps obvious.

15 tonnes is a giveaway to big magnets for ribbons, methinks.

At least in that warp-core-reactor looking thing

Cheers!

That makes the conventional spider look way out of place.

i'm pretty sure "petals" is the right term.

How often do you have to dump out all the dead flies and moths?

At that price it should have a feature that empties the bugs automatically, when the speaker isn't in use.

Peace,

Dave

My dog peed on a fly zapper once. We thought it was funny. He didn't. Doubt he would enjoy seeing those speakers in the house......
